SEGA and Sports Interactive have announced that Football Manager 2021 will release on November 24th on the Epic Games Store and Steam. In order to celebrate this announcement, SEGA also released an announcement trailer that you can find below.
Football Manager 21 is the follow-up to Sports Interactive record-breaking FM20 which has just enjoyed a hugely successful free to own period on the Epic Games Store. From today until launch, fans who pre-purchase FM21 from a SEGA approved digital retailer will receive a 10% discount. They will also get the chance to kick-off their managerial career ahead of schedule with Early Access.
Early Access will be available roughly two weeks prior to the official street date. Single-player careers started in that period can be carried across to the final game. Early Access will be available for the first time on the Epic Store, as well as Steam.
FM21 promises to place a renewed focus on the role of the manager. The game will add more tools that allow managers to develop their personalities and prowess. New additions and game upgrades deliver unparalleled levels of football authenticity and extra layers of depth and drama. We’ll be unveiling features and licensing updates from early October across the Football Manager social media channels and the Football Manager website.
Sports Interactive’s studio director, Miles Jacobson, said:
“Football Manager 2021 is a historic release for us as a studio. We’re bringing FM to more platforms than ever before and giving more people the chance to manage their favourite club – whether that’s on their PC, from the comfort of their sofa or on their phone or tablet.”
