A certification issue forced a last-minute postponement of Football Manager 2023’s PlayStation home console debut on PS5 in the latter part of last year. The wildly popular soccer team-building game has been sitting around ever since, but it will finally launch on Sony’s new-generation console on February 1.
PS Plus members will receive a 20% discount on the most recent installment of the series, which is a sensation in Europe, until 15:00 GMT on February 14. Developer Sports Interactive’s Miles Jacobson said, “We’re thrilled with today’s update that we’re finally going to be able to get Football Manager 2023 into the hands of PS5 gamers.” Since the initial delay, the team and our SEGA colleagues have devoted countless hours to working with Sony to resolve the problems, and we’re happy to say that a release candidate is now prepared to go live next week.
The game’s release coincides with the actual winter transfer window, when players change teams. The developer is eager to emphasize that it will release a patch right away to correct this, even though it acknowledges that this is unusual and could result in out-of-date rosters and lineups on launch day. We will provide a data update for the PS5 edition in line with the updates for all of our other platforms once all of the global transfer windows have closed, said Jacobson.
