The latest installment in Football management is almost upon us, with Football Manager 2022 set for release this November 8, 2021. 

Like other games in the franchise, the latest Football Manager 2022 will see players take control of a local team and work their way through the leagues, buying and selling players to create a title-winning side.

Sports Interactive has recently announced that the game will be released on the 9th of November – featuring on Xbox Game Pass for the first time ever.

Football Manager 2022 Release Date

The official release date for Football Manager 2022 has been set for November 9th, 2021.

Football Manager 2022 On Xbox Game Pass Day One

One of the big surprises that came to light when reading the announcement from Sports Interactive was how it would feature on Xbox Game Pass. This is the first time the game would feature on the platform, with Miles Jacobson Tweeting this regarding its return to Microsoft:

He states that “Our friends at @Xbox have spent years asking for us to come back to their consoles” going on to say “Sony Didn’t.”.

This is a pretty clear indication of why the game has made a return to Xbox and not on PlayStation – to many PS4/5 gamers annoyance.

For as long as he can remember, Charlie has always been interested in computers and gaming. It all started with the Sega Mega Drive and then evolved into PC gaming in his early teens. CS 1.6 was his first go at competitive gaming which soon evolved into CS:Source and now CS:GO - a game that he still plays (almost exclusively) today. Throughout that period he has also been a keen PC builder and enthusiast - dedicating a large portion of his time to the craft. My current rig is an ASUS 5700XT with AMD's Ryzen 3600X.
