The PlayStation 5 version of Football Manager 2023 Console will launch on February 1, publisher SEGA and developer Sports Interactive announced. PlayStation Plus members will be able to purchase the game at a 20 percent-off discount price until February 14.
Originally planned for release alongside the other versions of the game on November 8, 2022, the PlayStation 5 version was delayed due to “unforeseen complications which have arisen during the submissions and approvals process.”
In a new statement today, SEGA and Sports Interactive said:
“Both SEGA and Sports Interactive have worked closely with Sony to overcome unforeseen complications which arose during the submissions and approvals process, and we’re relieved to bring an end to the frustration and uncertainty surrounding the release.
“While it’s unusual for us to release during a transfer window, our priority from the moment our initial launch was postponed was to get the game to you as soon as possible. We’d normally wait for all windows to be closed globally but your questions and comments on our socials and forums made it clear that this was the right decision. Once all global transfer windows are closed, we will be providing a free transfer update to all PlayStation 5 players in the coming weeks.
“That gives you plenty of time to get up to full gear at the helm of your favourite football club and used to life on the biggest stage. When the transfer data drops in just over a month’s time you can kick start a new career, ready for the road to football glory.”
