Aside from PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Football Manager 2022 is out now across most all platforms
The latest entry of Sega and Sports Interactive’s simulation giant is being received well, standing at a Top Critic Average of 88 and 95% of critics recommending on OpenCritic. Sorry, long-dead FIFA Manager, but the franchise – originally titled Championship Manager – seems to be going from strength to strength.
As for its availability, on PC and Mac it’s available from Steam, Epic and the Microsoft Store with any progress you might have in the FM22 Early Access Beta automatically being automatically carried forward. Huzzah!
It’s the first time the series has had a release (and on release day at that) on Game Pass, meaning FM22 and FM22 Xbox Edition are available on PC and console game pass respectively.
Football Manager 2022 Touch for Nintendo Switch only is also available. Finally, FM22 Mobile is now available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
because to make games for a platform, you need a dev kit. To get a dev kit, the platform holder have to want the game on the platform. We spoke with Sony, we have no dev kits. We spoke with Microsoft, they sent them to us.

As for PlayStation consoles, Football Manager has long been a no-show, aside from Football Manager Classic 2014 on the PS Vita, that is.
When Football Manager 2021 was released, Sports Interactive boss Miles Jacobson explained that the studio hadn’t been sent dev-kits by Sony, despite requests. It’s as simple as that, unfortunately.
The only other thorn in an otherwise pristine release is that physical copies will include no disc in the box, only an activation code for Steam. Stop it, Sega.
For more information on FM22 across all platforms, visit www.footballmanager.com. That’s the word on the street at least.
