Football Manager 2023 promises to take the franchise to the next level, with new features and additions once again taking FM's levels of immersion to new heights.
With that being said, we want to take a look at some new additions that we feel would massively benefit the game.
Football Manager 2023 New Features Wishlist
Football Manager 2022 brought us a host of brand new features, and we expect FM23 to bring another round of major upgrades.
From the addition of Women's football to the expansion of the Data Hub, we've got a long wishlist of new features we'd like to see in this year's game.
Something that was built on last year that has left us wanting even more is interactions with players, staff and the media.
Giving us more options to compromise with unhappy players, or giving us the opportunity to sneakily chat to a transfer target could be a neat way of adding an extra level of excitement to Football Manager 2023.
All actions have consequences and FM has never shied away from forcing that point.
Football Manager 2022 saw the arrival of the Data Hub, permitting managers to see a deeper breakdown of their team's statistical output.
Naturally, with FM22 being the first outing for the Data Hub, it truly only scratched the surface of what was possible.
With more data to delve into -and infinite possibilities when it comes to displaying that data - we want to see Football Manager 2023 take this feature to the next level.
Whilst there isn't anything inherently wrong with the transfer systems in place in FM22, we do think improvements could be made in order to level the playing field.
For instance, opposition clubs are prone to offering way below a player's value, which can then see a player's head turned.
Switch that scenario the other way round and the result is often never the same.
In Football Manager 2023, we'd like to see a more even transfer process with similar outcomes each time.
Put it this way, we just don't want to have to keep paying £100 million for half-decent players.
Women's football is confirmed to be arriving in Football Manager, we just don't know when.
Football Manager 2023 was mooted as a potential point of arrival for the women's game, but we'll have to wait and see if that comes to fruition.
With the women's game growing year on year, we feel that now the time is right to bring the Women's game into the world's most popular management simulator.
Integrating women's football into the database will take some time, with discussions with women's leagues around the world commencing.
