Frontier has unveiled F1 Manager 2022, its major new management simulation game coming this Summer on PC via Epic Games Store and Steam. The F1 Manager franchise will be Frontier’s first foray into an annual sports license, as part of a long-term, multi-title agreement with F1.
In F1 Manager 2022, players will step into the shoes of a team principal and lead their drivers, engineers and fans to glory in the 2022 FIA Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship and FIA Formula 1 Constructors’ World Championship. The game promises to deliver a challenging experience for new and die-hard F1 fans alike. Additionally, it aims to showcase the intricacies of the world’s most prestigious racing brand.
