The exciting football coach simulation game will make a debut on new platform this year. The game is expected to be released with more features this time around. Football Manager 2020 will be coming to market and available for download this autumn as per the reports. The previous edition of Football Manager sold more than a million copies, and fans are eagerly waiting for the release of the new version.
With the announcement of the game expected in coming months, let’s have an in-depth analysis of the new release ticking the boxes of release dates, cost and more.
Will Football Manager 2020 Take the Giant Leap?
Football Manager 2020 Release date:
The released date of the game can either be November 1 or November 8. Although it’s not yet confirmed. In the past Football Manager has been released in November first or second week. It is also a possibility that Sports Interactive might make the game available on steam a day prior, as was the case with the previous edition.
Football Manager 2020 devices & platforms:
The game will be available on Mac, PC and Google Stadia. Football Manager 2020 Touch and Mobile will be available for tablets, Nintendo Switch, and mobile phones. The game can be played with the help of Chromecast and other devices. Jacobson, head of Sportsman Interactive revealed in June that there are no plans of releasing the game on Xbox One or PS4.

What will be the price of the latest edition?
The cost of Football Manager 2020 is more around £37.99 in the UK and $49.99 in the US at launch time. The price is the same as that of the previous two versions if not more. Although the prices are not yet confirmed, it is not expected to vary much. Football Manager Touch and Mobile will be comparatively cheaper than the full game.
What new enhancements expected with Football Manager 2020 have?
Sports Interactive have not opened their cards until now. Last year’s release saw the addition of VAR and goal-line technology. Also, the agreement with German leagues saw the addition of Bundesliga teams.
Each year Sports Interactive leap forward to improve their game engine to provide a better experience for players. However, the game still seems to fall behind the likes of PES and FIFA.

With the deal confirmed from Bundesliga last year, there are possibilities of more competition partnerships.
Will women’s football be included in FM20?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be on the cards this time around. Jacobson has already indicated various times that it’s not financially possible. This makes it clear it is not expected to be added in the coming years.
