Football Manager 2022 Update targets Slow Performance during Beta

Football Manager 2022 is coming soon with its November 9th release date, and in the meantime, players are getting started on their new campaigns with the FM 22 beta.

With the FM 22 beta, however, there have been some bumps in the road. One of those has been consistent performances issues slowing the game down massively in certain areas.

File Size

The October 26th FM 22 update lands at 265.6 MB for its file size, making it a very light download you won't have to do any hard drive cleanup for.

Despite the small size, however, the update tackles a big problem.

Patch Notes

While we don't have a formal set of patch notes from SI on the new Football Manager 2022 update, we do have some of the things it's targeted.

This includes addressing one of the biggest complaints players have had since the beginning of the beta - gameplay slowing down and massive periods of lag.

With this, SI expects players to have a better time with FM 22 slowing down during some of its most exciting times.

This patch is a great sign to show that FM 22 bugs will be sorted out quickly, and that player feedback is heard loud and clear.

If you have any other issues with the FM 22 beta or notice any other bugs, SI recommends you report them via their bug tracker here.

With enough reports, you'll likely see these bugs addressed before launch day!
