It's an odd one, as no one really things FM is a "console exclusive" game. It turns out the story is a little more than that.

It looks like Sony simply weren't interested in having the game on their platform.
ASK AND THOU SHALL NOT RECEIVE: SI simply didn't get a dev kit from Sony
Miles Jacobson, the studio director at Sports Interactive, explained it rather simply.
In order to make the game fit the console platfoms they needed a dev kit. Microsoft sent them to SI, but Sony did not.
FM21 release date & Early Access
Football Manager 2021 has a confirmed release date of 24 November.
Along with that date, those that pre-purchase on Steam or Epic Games Store can get Early Access.
Early Access (previously known as the beta) will start roughly two weeks before release date, so around 10 November.
