Football Manager 2021 has been confirmed to arrive this year, just a bit later than initially planned. Too early to talk about a specific release date though.

News - Football Manager 2021 Confirmed but Delayed
Great news! Football Manager 2021 has been officially confirmed to arrive later this year, but it should be delayed compared to the usual timeline.

The reason for this delay? The worldwide pandemic has forced the Sports Interactive team to be working from home and not being together in their London office since early March.

Nobody knows when this situation is going to change, but the members of the SI team are now in a position where they’re set up to continue to work in this fashion for as long as it takes.

Miles Jacobson:
...despite all the problems going on in the world, there will be new Football Manager games released later this year. They will be delivered a little later than we’d originally planned, but they’ll have exceptionally strong feature sets… albeit different to those we thought we’d settled on back in January...

Of course it's too early to talk about a specific FM21 release date or FM2021 feature reveals, but there are 3 key takeaways from the statement above.
  • FM21 will be definitely released
  • FM2021 will be delayed but should still be out during 2020
  • FM 2021 might have exceptionally strong features

Miles Jacobson also announced that Football Manager 2021 will be on more platforms and available on more stores than ever before.
It will be interesting to see if that could mean a possible return to non-handheld consoles, even though Miles has repeatedly ruled out such scenario in the past.

We are looking forward to the next official Football Manager 2021 related announcement with excitement.
