On November 8, Football Manager 2023 will be available for purchase across all platforms except the PS5. The release of the PS5 version has been put on hold indefinitely due to unanticipated challenges that have surfaced throughout the process of submitting and gaining clearance for the game. \n \nBoth Sega and Sports Interactive declined to comment on what exactly is causing the delay in the release of Football Manager 2023 for the PS5. Still, they guaranteed that updates would be made available as quickly as possible. Additionally, you will receive a refund for any digital purchases made through the PlayStation Store; however, if you pre-ordered a physical copy, you will need to contact the shop from which you purchased it to cancel your order. \n \nMiles Jacobson, Sports Interactive's studio director states, "We are heartbroken by this conclusion." The company has been working tirelessly with its partners for a number of weeks in an effort to find a solution to this issue. It was very tough to make the decision to wait because it implies holding back a terrific game on which a number of bright people from SI have been working extremely hard for a considerable amount of time. Nevertheless, we are committed to doing everything in our power to ensure that players of the PS5 version of the game have access to this title as soon as we possibly can. \n \nThe good news is that Football Manager 2023 will still be available for download on all other platforms on November 8, as originally stated. These platforms include PlayStation 4, PC, Switch, Xbox, Android, iOS, and Apple Arcade. This is Football Manager's first return to PlayStation since its 2014 debut on the PS Vita, and it also marks the game's return to mobile platforms after bypassing Android and iOS in 2021.
