It’s an odd one, as no one really things FM is a “console exclusive” game. It turns out the story is a little more than that.

It looks like Sony simply weren’t interested in having the game on their platform.
Miles Jacobson, the studio director at Sports Interactive, explained it rather simply.
In order to make the game fit the console platfoms they needed a dev kit. Microsoft sent them to SI, but Sony did not.
FM21 release date & Early Access
Football Manager 2021 has a confirmed release date of 24 November.
Along with that date, those that pre-purchase on Steam or Epic Games Store can get Early Access.
Early Access (previously known as the beta) will start roughly two weeks before release date, so around 10 November.
