BITTER BLOW - FM23 on the PS5 has been delayed

In a statement, Football Manager boss Miles Jacobson said the following:

"We're devastated by this outcome, which we have worked tirelessly with our partners for a number of weeks to try to address. It was especially difficult to make the decision to delay, as it involves holding back a great game which a number of talented people within SI have worked tremendously hard on for quite some time. We will continue to do everything in our power to get this game into the hands of PS5 gamers as soon as we can."

Sports Interactive has confirmed the decision has been made due to unforeseen complications which have arisen during the submissions and approvals process.
