Football Manager 2013 UK Release Date: On sale now

Update: On sale now

The eagerly awaited Football Manager 2013 UK release date is upon us with the Sega published PC and Mac bound game hitting retailers today, November 2nd.

The latest addition to the iconic football franchise, the Sports Interactive developed Football Manager 2013 UK release date comes weeks after its closets rivals stormed the UK gaming chart, landing five weeks after the FIFA 13 release date and six weeks behind the arrival of PES 2013.

Preceded by a fully-playable ‘beta’ version of the game, today’s November 2nd Football Manager 2013 comes in the midst of a flurry of high profile gaming releases, arriving at retailers just days after Assassin’s Creed 3, on the same day as Need for Speed: Most Wanted and just days ahead of Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Available to those who pre-ordered the managerial simulator, the Football Manager 2013 Beta version offered advanced access to many of the full game’s features two weeks prior to launch with all saved data made available within the final title.

“Our fans are very good at letting us know what they want and the one thing that’s consistently at the top of their wish list is an earlier release date,” Sports Interactive Studio Director Miles Jacobson said at the confirmation of the Football Manager 2013 release date back in September.

He added: “While we can’t, strictly speaking, offer them exactly what they want, this Beta version is the next best thing… a fully playable Football Manager they can get their hands on around two weeks before the finished game hits the streets.”

Allowing gamers to take control of any club from more than 50 footballing nations, Football Manager 2013 includes all key European leagues from the lofty heights of the Premier League and La Liga to the less glamorous League 2. A database of more than 500,000 real-world players help make the latest Football Manager release one of the most immersive titles to date.
