They have stated that the cause of delay is due to unforeseen complications that happened during the submissions and approval process.
Other platforms for Football Manager 2023 Console, the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, are not affected and will still be available on its planned launch date, 8th November.
Those that have pre-ordered the game via the PSN Digital storefront will have their order cancelled and a full refund will be given according to Sony’s platform policy.
“We’re devastated by this outcome, which we have worked tirelessly with our partners for a number of weeks to try to address. It was especially difficult to make the decision to delay, as it involves holding back a great game which a number of talented people within SI have worked tremendously hard on for quite some time. We will continue to do everything in our power to get this game into the hands of PS5 gamers as soon as we can.”
– Miles Jacobson, Sports Interactive’s Studio Director
