FM22 Touch

Football Manager 2022 Touch will only be available for Nintendo Switch

Titled Football Manager 2022 Touch, the mobile version has been pencilled in to be released around the same time as the PC and Xbox versions.

But now the plans have been changed on the fly and will now only be released for Nintendo Switch – and not for Android or iOS.

This is due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year which hindered their plans of launching on more than one handheld platform. So those players that play on Apple or Google devices – are set to be disappointed.

New Features

Miles Jacobson, who is the chief of Sports Interactive and the Director and Executive Producer of Football Manager, revealed an abundance of new features on Twitter.

Football Manager 2022 New Features

The new features are:

  • When receiving an award, your board may decide to publicly comment on it to add further context surrounding your achievement.
  • You’ll now be able to track any assurances made to another manager via the promises tab, so you can avoid awkward conversations later in the season
  • You can now discuss perceived referee bias in press conferences- this could get you a touchline ban
  • New animation cut scenes for intra squad friendlies with the players warming up more casually and getting advice as a group
  • A manager will now no longer be appointed on a matchday for their new club… because it’s just strange when it happens dealing with non-match day things on match day.
