The presence of licensed teams, leagues, and competitions adds to Football Manager’s already incredible authenticity and realism. 

Player faces, official club logos and first team kits for Portuguese giants FC Porto, SL Benfica and Sporting CP are new additions, while Latvia’s seven-team top flight, the Higher League, makes its Football Manager debut after they lovingly recreated the league themselves in FM21.

Major Changes for FM22 Touch and Beyond

Major Changes for FM22 Touch and Beyond

06.10.21 Miles Jacobson

As you can probably imagine, given what we do and how important data and research is to our games, here at Sports Interactive we use a lot of data to help us make business decisions.

We constantly monitor our roster of games using a process of ‘cost-benefit analysis’ which, simply put, means that we look at how much it costs us to develop, QA and release each separate version, then compare that against the revenue it will bring in (alongside any other benefits or costs it may offer to our business, outside of pure profit and loss).

Sometimes this leads to us having to make difficult business decisions that we know won’t be universally popular, but we have to look at the bigger picture and decide what’s the best for the majority of our players and for us as a studio.

So, today I want to talk about some changes to the formats that we will – and won’t – be releasing Football Manager Touch on this year.

At about this time last year, when I sat down to write a blog about how Sports Interactive and Football Manager were affected by the Covid pandemic, I thought that was going to be a ‘one-off’. But here we are, one year later and Covid is still dominating the global conversation. Thanks to the wonders of science we do have vaccines, which are saving lives and making it easier for people to fight the virus, but there are still far too many cases around the world and it most certainly hasn’t gone away.

To reuse a line I’ve used a lot over the last 18 months… making games is hard, but making games during a pandemic is harder. This is why so many games that we are all waiting to play are still delayed as people try to adjust to working separately from their colleagues, while simultaneously dealing with the multiple productivity issues (both positive and negative) that have arisen from the new way of working and people’s individual circumstances.

That’s the challenge Football Manager researcher Ryan O’Connell has set himself this season, as he plans to cycle to every ground in the division, raising funds for Prostate Cancer UK along the way.

Between the opening game this Saturday, August 14th, to the final fixtures on May 7th, Ryan will cover roughly 1,000 miles on his bike, hitting the roads and cycle lanes from Braintree Town and Chelmsford City in Essex to Bath City and Chippenham Town in the west of England.
