Football Manager 2023 was due to release on the PS5 alongside the PC, Mobile and Xbox editions of the game.
That, however, will not be happening, with the FM23 PS5 release date delayed following complications.
FM23 PS5 Release Date Delayed
Sports Interactive has confirmed that they have made the difficult decision of delaying the scheduled release date for Football Manager 2023 on PS5.
In a statement, Football Manager boss Miles Jacobson said the following:
"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."
Sports Interactive has confirmed the decision has been made due to unforeseen complications which have arisen during the submissions and approvals process.
Football Manager 2023 on the PS5 now does not have an official release date.
Customers who have pre-ordered via the PSN Digital storefront will have their pre-order cancelled and a full refund will be made according to Sony’s platform policy.
Sports Interactive has confirmed that all other editions of Football Manager 2023 are scheduled to release on time.
