Good news for Football fans, as I have it confirmed to me today that Football Manager 2018 [Steam, Official Site] will launch on November 10th and it will feature day-1 Linux support. That will be the fifth in the series to support Linux, which is a really good sign. It seems SEGA and Sports Interactive have no trouble continuing to support us.

They're doing a deal right now that if you own Football Manager 2017 and pre-order Football Manager 2018 (before Monday, October 9th) you will get a 25% discount, so that's not a bad deal.

If you do pre-order, you can gain access to a "fully-playable Beta", which can be continued into the full game at the final release.

They will be releasing more details on what's new through September on the official site. Details on exactly what's different are a little light right now, but I expect we will hear more soon.

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

Finally, FM2018 is officially announced in Germany. It was banned until this year (due to licences IIRC).

Nope, I can't stand football & I'm never going to spend money on it, being caught up in a riot at a real football match when I was 9yrs old soured me on the whole football thing.

Quoting: dudeFinally, FM2018 is officially announced in Germany. It was banned until this year (due to licences IIRC).

The Steam page still says "This item is currently unavailable in your region", and their store says "Sorry, this product is not available in your region".

Which means I can't pre-order it either, obviously, to get that pre-order deal. If it even comes out in Germany at all, that is.

Well, I hate it too, in real life. Hate the culture, hate the rowdy people, hate the game itself, hate the mess of broken beer bottles, barf and police horse crap on bicycle lanes after a game, ...

I do, however, have fond memories of playing Anstoss and especially Anstoss 2 (Gold), football manager sims in the 1990s.

EDIT: Ah, it seems like Football Manager 2018 isn't coming to Germany. But Football Manager 2019, next year, is. "Great".

Well it must be doing reasonably well on our platform if they are continuing to support it then.

One of the first hugely popular games that started supporting Linux years ago, and a stellar one. That's amazing, so thankful for that :)

This must be THE football game being a manager, but who to possibly bring Sensible Soccer Remastered (!) to existence...

Well it is actually Codemasters the British publisher that owns the rights to that one and if you could convince enough people to pester them about it they are fairly pro linux so you never know.

Football Manager 2017 price is now at -80% OFF, if you think it is still expensive then this game is really not for you.
