Football Manager release dates

Does anyone else think they're missing out a bit release FM so late each year?

By November, when the game comes out, the start of season buzz has died down a bit in my eyes.

If they can't get the game out by August, perhaps they should wait 20 months for a release one year, and have it released at the start of August. I much prefer to play from the start of the season - and I like the start of my season to have happened before it has in real life.

Transfers etc can easily be corrected with updates etc, so that's no excuse.

It really frustrates me every year, that when the season starts, and I'm pumped up for football, I can't play from the start of the season which has just started...I have to wait 4 months, and by then I'm a little over it - and if a side is going really poorly in real life at that stage of the season, and start smashing it in Football Manager, it also loses my interest a little. If I'm always "in the future" in my game, I don't get that same feeling. But really the main point is being able to start the season in game that's being started in real life.

Yeah, this is partly why I haven't played FM in years. Just lose interest in football. By the time I get interested again the game is already a year old and it sucks playing 'in the past'.

Seeing as they were even struggling to make November last year, I don't think we ever going to get it in August. SI works slow...

Glad it's not just me. I'm so excited around August every year. Waiting so long for it is ridiculous.

They should delay a release by 18 months (or release a version one year in August which is essentially a roster update with new start dates to get on track).

Long term it's probably beneficial, but do they have the current financial strength to do such a thing?

If they released another FM 8-9 months after their first release, and it was basically a roster update to get them out on time, then changed back to annual releases, I'm not sure they'd lose much $?

I can see it working if they are honest about it and dock the price imo

Sega probably needs the money. They aren't in the best financial shape these days. I expect FM is a golden goose for them, especially since Sonic doesn't carry the panache of, say, Mario anymore.

They could add some minor features if they wanted to. Half the seasons have bugger all in the way of new features anyway. So they could just call it FM17. Most fans wouldn't even think twice about it and get it for the new season - as they do every year.

I completely agree with the OP and I think they would probably sell more copies if the game came out in July or August.
