FM22 Xbox Edition

A version for Microsoft's console will once again be available after a return to Xbox with FM21.

FM22 Xbox will be playable with both Xbox Game Pass for PC and Game Pass for Console.

FM22 Xbox Edition release date

Both FM22 and FM22 Xbox Edition will be available with Xbox Game Pass from Day One when both titles launch on November 9.

Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service that allows you to play more than 100 high-quality games for a small monthly fee.


FM22 Xbox Price & Pre-order

The game is available to pre-order on PC already, with Football Manager 2022 costs £39.50 / $49.50 on Steam and Epic Games.

We expect the Xbox edition to be the same price as the PC version for those who do not have Xbox Game Pass.

Will FM22 on Xbox have improved graphics?

We expect plenty of improvements to the match engine from last year's FM21 Xbox edition, while there will of course be a new skin and plenty of new features added to this year's version.
