The developers of Football Manager 2022 (FM22) have announced that the latest title to the series will be available for Xbox Game Pass on release.
The news comes after Sports Interactive tested the feature initially for last year's game (FM21) for the first time in the company's history and have opted to keep it this time around, further widening the scope as far as player accessibility is concerned.
With FM22 just under a month until its official launch, the developers are slowly starting to reveal more of their poker hands as the momentous day rapidly approaches.
The Football Manager is easily the dominant force of this part of the gaming sector, with no other virtual football management sim coming close to the detailed and precise database that SI have built over the past 10 years.
With this in mind, they are looking to build upon their legacy once more which has an array of new features that will continue to set them apart from similar titles.
Football Manager 2022 Xbox Game Pass
The developers confirmed this news on their official website, promising that they will provide you with "new and progressive ways to implement your footballing style and earn success with your fans."
Sports Interactive have been fantastic over the years when it comes to providing an immersive football management experience, and these words certainly do have an element of truth to them.
However, the Xbox Game Pass they are referring to is only for the PC and not for Xbox consoles, as they aim to maximise the "power of Microsoft's Play Anywhere technology."
But what this does mean is that FM22 will be available to existing subscribers for no extra cost, meaning that they will be able to play on the game's planned release date, which is excellent news for those concerned.
It will be interesting to see if this is extended to the console edition in the coming months, which tends not to target games until they are a few months or even a year old. Time will tell.
