Bring your Football Manager 2020 stadium to Stadia
In addition to being released on PC and Mac, Football Manager 2020 will be releasing on Google’s upcoming streaming console, Stadia. This is the first time that a Football Manager game will be part of a new console’s launch lineup. The game will use Google’s developed cloud technology and their wealth of data centers around the world to allow for more matches, more saved leagues, and a faster experience than on other platforms.
Release information, multiple versions, and a beta are coming soon
More details on Football Manager 2020 will be coming in mid-September and will be shown on the game’s official website. It is planned for release in early November, but we don’t know the exact date just yet. In addition to its PC and Mac release, Football Manager 2020 Mobile will be coming out the same day on Android and iOS. Football Manager 2020 Touch will also release at the same time for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android, and a Switch version of Touch will come a few weeks after the initial release.
Anyone who pre-purchases the game before November will get a 10 percent discount through Sports Interactive’s approved storefronts. There will also be a beta for Football Manager playable on PC two weeks before release for anyone that picks the game up through a Sega retailer. All careers started during the beta will carry over into the full release of the game. The beta will not be accessible on Stadia.
