Actually that date was on Steam store for a little while, then FM20 was taken down from it for a couple of hours until it reappeared with just "November". On the official social accounts of Sports Interactive the exact day is not confirmed, but the official statement right now is "early November".

Like last year, all three versions of the game – Football Manager 2020 (PC, Mac & Stadia), Football Manager Touch 2020 (PC, Mac, iOS and Android) and Football Manager Mobile 2020 (iOS and Android) will be released on the same day.
In similar fashion, the first details of new features and updates in Football Manager 2020 will be revealed in mid-late September.
Why? The game isn't ready to show before mid September.

What is this beta version?
- Beta version is a full game very close to the final version; not the finished product, but full without limitations.
- The game will automatically update to the final release version on the official release date (given that your Steam client is in online mode).
- Saved games will be compatible with the final game.
