Football Manager 2014 will be released in just about six weeks, according to Sports Interactive and publisher Sega. They announced an October 31st release date for the next installment in the management sim, which promises several innovations.
Among them are the arrival on Linux for the first time, and cross-platform play with the PS Vita. If you own a copy of FM 2014 on a computer and for PS Vita, you'll be able to continue games in classic mode from one platform to the next. Those who buy the game on PC, Mac, or Linux will have access to it on any of these platforms via Steam. Steam cloud saves should enable continuing a game from one to the next as well. A slew of tech features and improvements are highlighted in the video above. Preorders for the game from select retailers will come with a full beta release, playable from about two weeks before release and nothing will be wiped.
