Publisher SEGA and developer Sports Interactive have delayed the PlayStation 5 version of Football Manager 2023 Console from its previously planned November 8 release date to an unannounced date, citing “unforeseen complications which have arisen during the submissions and approvals process.”
In a statement, Sports Interactive studio director Miles Jacobson said, “We’re devastated by this outcome, which we have worked tirelessly with our partners for a number of weeks to try to address. It was especially difficult to make the decision to delay, as it involves holding back a great game which a number of talented people within Sports Interactive have worked tremendously hard on for quite some time. We will continue to do everything in our power to get this game into the hands of PlayStation 5 gamers as soon as we can.”
SEGA will announce a new release date as soon as possible. Users who have pre-purchase the game via PlayStation Store will receive refunds where applicable.
