Football Manager 2020: Release date confirmed

We are less than three months away from the release of Football Manager 2020 and today we have been teased with a sneak peak of what’s to come.

Football Manager remains one of the most popular video games in the world. The tactics, the intricate details, you really immerse yourself into the experience of the managerial role.

Fans across the world often have their own views and interpretations for how to be a successful manager and FM20 is going to be better than ever at giving you the chance to prove your worth.

They have today released the first trailer for the game and gives a taste of what is to come. Football Manager will be revealing the first key details and features of the game in mid-September through their official website and all of their official FM social media channels.

Football Manager 2019 was the fastest-selling, best-selling, and most played version of the series to date across all of its release platforms. Nine months after its release, more than 60% of the people who have bought the PC/Mac game in its lifetime are still playing it each month.

This year also marks the first time in history that Football Manager will be available as a launch title on a new platform; FM 20 will make its debut on Google’s Stadia and will be the fastest way to experience Football Manager.

Miles Jacobson, Studio Director of Sports Interactive, said: “Football Manager on Stadia includes technology that is only available on that platform, utilising the power of the cloud and Google’s data centres to ensure that more matches can be processed in parallel utilising spare bandwidth across the whole system.

“This means you can have more leagues loaded into your save, or just go for a faster experience by keeping the amount of leagues the same, but having the matches process quicker than you can on any other platform.”

From today until launch, fans who pre-purchase Football Manager 2020 (for PC and Mac) will receive a 10% discount from a SEGA approved digital retailer.

Additionally, those people will be able to get their managerial careers underway early through a fully-playable Beta version, which will be available roughly two weeks prior to the official street date.

So keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks as Football Manager are set to release the game’s key features and details in September.
