Football Manager 2013 confirmed

Exclusive: Football Manager 2013 announcement scheduled for three weeks time

A big announcement about Football Manager 2013 is set for next month, according to an insider at the game's developer, Sports Interactive

In a phone conversation with Sports Interactive, it was exclusively revealed to T3 that a big announcement concerning Football Manager 2013 is scheduled for three weeks time.

This seems to confirm that the latest instalment of Sports Interactive's management sim is in the pipeline, and possibly scheduled for release later this year.

So there you go: an announcement about an announcement pretty much confirms that the new Football Manager game should be winging its way out of development soon.

Last year's instalment debuted at number one in the videogames sales charts in the week of its release and the Football Manager 2012 smartphone app (£6.99) is up for nomination for T3's 2012 App of the Year.

The critically acclaimed Football Manager series is one of the biggest selling franchises in Sega's games line-up.

Since the game's inception, it has shifted well over 7 million copies. Its addictive and compelling gameplay has earned it a loyal following and the game has even been cited in divorce cases.
