Football Manager 2023 Out Now

The time has arrived – Football Manager 2023 is out now. 

PC and Mac users can download and play FM23 now from Steam, Epic Games and the Microsoft Store. Those of you who’ve been enjoying the FM23 Early Access Beta on Epic or Steam can simply quit and restart the relevant launcher and the game will update to the full release build. All single-player progress made in the Beta will automatically carry forward.

Football Manager 2023 Out Now

Fans purchasing physical copies of FM23 will notice that this year’s edition does not include a disc. Instead, every pack contains a unique code that, once redeemed, enables play via Steam, Epic Games or the Microsoft Store. 

Removing the disc and notebook from this year’s edition, in addition to further refinements to our eco-packaging, means that the overall carbon footprint for FM23’s packaging is 47% lower than FM22’s.

The release also marks a debut for the Football Manager series, with FM23 Touch stepping out onto the pitch through Apple Arcade. 

Following last year’s success, FM23 and FM23 Console are available with Xbox Game Pass from launch. As such, all Xbox Game Pass subscribers can start their careers on PC or Console* from Day One at no extra cost. Fans can also purchase FM23 Console via the Xbox Store. 

Completing the squad for this season, Football Manager 2023 Touch (Nintendo Switch™) is also now live on the Nintendo eShop and FM23 Mobile is available for download from the App Store and Google Play. Those who pre-ordered on iOS devices will be able to play immediately. 

The release of the PlayStation 5 version of Football Manager™ 2023 Console has been delayed due to unforeseen complications which have arisen during the submissions and approvals process.
