Football Manager 2017 will launch for PC, Mac and Linux on November 4, SEGA and Sports Interactive have announced.
The full fat edition will be joined on the same day by Football Manager Touch 2017, which will be available standalone or offered free to all those buying the regular edition
As has become the norm for a new Football Manager release, those who pre-purchase from a participating digital retailer will be able to start their FM17 career at least two weeks prior to the official launch via a fully-playable beta. All single-player careers started in the beta can be continued in the full game.
Furthermore, FM17 pre-orders from participating retailers 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.
Look out for the games' features to be revealed over the coming months.
