Release of FM23 Console on PlayStation 5 Delayed

SEGA and Sports Interactive can today reveal that the PlayStation 5 version of Football Manager™ 2023 Console will not debut on 8th November, as originally planned, due to unforeseen complications which have arisen during the submissions and approvals process.

Release of FM23 Console on PlayStation 5 Delayed

Miles Jacobson, Sports Interactive’s Studio Director, 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 SI 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 PS5 gamers as soon as we can."

SEGA and Sports Interactive will update on this matter at the earliest opportunity. Customers who have pre-ordered via the PSN Digital storefront will have their pre-order cancelled and a full refund will be made according to Sony’s platform policy. Please note that there is no action required on the customer's behalf to receive the refund. All other games in the FM23 suite are currently on course for a 8th November release.
