Sports Interactive has finally revealed the release date for FM21. But when is it?

Football Manager 2021 release date


The brand new managerial sim has a release date of 24 November!

That's a little later than usual, but this was expected given a recent statement from Studio Director Miles Jacobson.


"They will be delivered a little later than we’d originally planned, but they’ll have exceptionally strong feature sets"

We can't wait to see what SI has planned after the amazing success of FM20.

What about the Beta?


The press release doesn't mention the beta, but it does talk about Early Access!

It looks like this will start two weeks before release, so that's around 10 November. However that is not a firm date.
