Whilst it may only feel like Football Manager 2022 has just arrived, you can be certain that Football Manager 2023 is just around the corner.
With that in mind, we want to answer one of the burning questions on the tongue of all Football Manager fans: will this year's game be free?
Football Manager 20-Free?
We're sorry to send your dreams crashing down to Earth, but Football Manager 2023 will not be free this year.
Midway through Football Manager 2023's run - similar to what we've seen in previous years - there will be a period in which fans access the game on Steam for free for a short period of time.
However, we are once again expecting Football Manager 2023 to arrive at a price point of £39.99 / $54.99.
Whilst there is no official price point announced for Football Manager 2023, we are expecting the new release to remain at the same level of FM22.
FM22 cost £39.99 / $54.99 from the Epic Games or Steam stores, with 10% off for those who pre-purchase (taking it to £36.00 / $49.50).
We expect that to be the same price for Xbox consoles and Nintendo Switch.
We expect the Mobile version to cost £8.99 / $8.99.
Football Manager 2023 Release Date
Whilst there is no current confirmed release date for Football Manager 2023, we are expecting the game to launch at a similar time to FM22.
Football Manager 2022 released on 8 November 2021, and we are expecting FM23 to follow in these footsteps with an early-November release date.
