The full release of Football Manager 2023 is finally upon us. The full release comes almost three weeks after the beta version of the game was made available, allowing users to play the game but report bugs if they encountered any.

The beta release of the game has been one of the most successful ever experienced by game creators, Sports Interactive. On Tuesday, November 1 Miles Jacobson, the director of Football Manager revealed that 10 million matches have been played since the beta was released on October 20.

Despite the roaring success of the beta launch, the full game will not be available on the PlayStation on November 8 as originally planned. No other platforms have been affected.

Jacobson said: “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."
