In an unexpected turn of events, SEGA has announced the official launch date for both Football Manager 2017 and its counterpart Football Manager Touch 2017. Coming November 4th of this year, those who buy Football Manager 2017 on PC/Mac/Linux will get a free copy of Football Manager Touch 2017. We’re also told that Football Manager Touch 2017 will be available as a standalone release on the same day, which is always a nice option to have.
Gamers that pre-purchase Football Manager 2017 from a participating digital retailer can also start their new managerial career at least two weeks prior to the official street date through a fully-playable beta version (single player careers started in the Beta can be continued in the full game).
All pre-orders from participating retailers, whether digital or boxed, will come with downloadable content for Football Manager Touch 2017 including “Board over-ride”, “No firing”, “All job applications”, “National management” and 3 brand new challenges to play in the “Challenge” game mode.
