News - Football Manager 2021 "Secret" Hotfix Update
Sports Interactive have just released the eighth hotfix patch for the retail version of Football Manager 2021. The version didn't change and remains 21.4.0 but the build number is different.

This update on Epic and Steam is to maintain cross-play compatibility across PC platforms.

Date Released: April 7th, 2021
File size: 264MB

21.4.0-1528944 List of Changes

- Added cross-play compatibility for online game across Epic, Steam and Xbox Game Pass with in-game achievements and leaderboards cross-synced between platforms too.

As usual the update is save game compatible, so you don't have to start a new save game.
To update you will need to close down Football Manager 2021 and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.
If that doesn't do the trick, then verify the game cache will.

If you encounter any issues post update, please use the official FAQ for troubleshooting suggestions. You can also contact [email protected] or use or SI's FM21 Bugs Forum for further support.
