Why FM22 Touch won't be available on PC

FM Touch has always provided a stripped back version for PC players, but not this year.

The developers have cited the pandemic as the reasoning behind this difficult decision, which is bound to be disappointing news for many long-term fans of the series.

Where can you play FM Touch?

FM22 Touch will be released solely on the Nintendo Switch, with PC players being given the alternate option of downloading the Xbox version via Steam or Xbox Game Pass.
