We're inching ever closer to the finish line with regards to the F1 Manager 2022 release date, which is now just a few short weeks away!


If you've ever felts like racing games (such as F1 22) don't quite do justice to the behind-the-scenes world of Formula One, this could be the game for you — F1 Manager 2022 is a management simulator that lets you make all the decisions for an F1 team, basically like the motoring equivalent of a Football Manager game.

Coming to us from Frontier, the Britain-based company that has previously made such brilliant management sims as Jurassic World Evolution 2, F1 Manager 2022 could be the start of a major new franchise if it finds a big enough audience.

But when does F1 Manager 2022 actually come out? And what else do you need to know about it? Keep on reading and we will race you through all of the important details.

When is the F1 Manager 2022 game release date?

The F1 Manager 2022 game release date is Tuesday 30th August 2022, and you can pre-order your copy now from retailers such as Amazon and CD Keys.

This means that the management-focused game will come out a couple of months after F1 22 (a more traditional racing game), which seems like a big enough gap. Fans of F1 should hopefully have time for both of these high-end games!

Can I pre-order the F1 Manager 2022 game?

The F1 Manager 2022 game is available to pre-order now via third-party retailers like Amazon and CD Keys (the latter of which is often a good place to find a deal).

You'll also find the game available to pre-buy through the built-in stores on Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Product pages are also live now on Steam or Epic for PC players.

Which platforms are getting the F1 Manager 2022 game?

The F1 Manager 2022 game will launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC, with the computer-based release being spread across Steam and the Epic Games Store. There's no word on a Nintendo Switch release, though, so bad luck if that's your only gaming platform at the moment.

F1 Manager 2022 gameplay

Adding nicely to the F1 Manager 22 gameplay trailer above, the official announcement for F1 Manager 2022 describes its gameplay and style with a couple of tantalising sentences.

The tease reads like so: "With unparalleled authenticity and broadcast-quality presentation, F1 Manager 2022 delivers a challenging experience for new and die-hard F1 fans alike, while showcasing the intricacies of the world’s most prestigious racing brand."

The announcement also promised that invited players will be able to "own every aspect of leading a team to victory, upgrading cars and race facilities, hiring drivers and engineers, balancing budgets and driver demands, all before the race weekend kicks into gear. Once the race gets underway, stay calm under pressure and make critical decisions as you manage your team to victory."
