Sports Interactive Rules Out Football Manager on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

Sports Interactive has ”no plans at all” to bring Football Manager to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, according to studio director Miles Jacobson.

The developer has experimented with console versions in the past, having brought the 2006-09 versions of the game to Xbox 360. However, the full Football Manager experience could make the jump to iPad in the future with the release of the iPad Air. ”Technically, it might be possible with the new [iPad] that comes out in a couple of weeks. Whether it’s the right game for that device, probably not. Because people play games on mobiles and tablets differently to the way they play games on PCs,” Jacobson told Sportra.

“On the PC our average play time per session is over two hours, whereas on the iOS devices it’s less than half an hour. So the iOS game is specifically designed for those devices, but you know, who knows what could happen in the future.

“But people also do have to remember that every time a new device comes out, if we were just to support that new device, it means that anyone who has any of the other iOS devices won’t get the game at all. So you know, unless everyone throws away their old devices, and just gets new devices, it’s something that might be difficult for us to support, certainly in the short term. Who knows in the medium term.”

Football Manager 2014 is available now on PC, Mac, and Linux.
