We are just two long weeks away from the start of another Formula 1 season, which seems to be the perfect time to announce a new F1 title.
While we are all used to Codemasters' racing franchise. The world of motor racing management games hasn't really been explored. With Football Manager providing a more tactical and realistic foil for FIFA, the newly announced F1 Manager 2022 game could well do the same for Formula 1 gamers!
F1 Manager 2022
F1 Manager 2022 puts you on the pit wall as Team Principal in the world of Formula 1.
Developed by Frontier, the game is fully licensed by F1 and is set to launch this summer on PS 4 & 5, Xbox One & Series X|S, and PC via both Steam and the Epic Store.
This will be the first in an annual release, with Frontier having agreed to a long-term, multi-title deal with Formula 1.
Make the decisions that matter
Team Principals are the decision-makers and leaders of Formula 1 teams. From sponsorship deals, to signing drivers, and hiring staff, they do it all. And now so will you!
F1 Manager 2022 asks you to lead your drivers, engineers, and fans to glory in both the Drivers' and Constructors' title fights.
Boasting unparalleled authenticity and broadcast-quality presentation, F1 Manager 2022 looks set to deliver a whole new challenge to fans.
Ross Brawn, Managing Director - Motorsports, Formula 1®, said, “It’s great to see F1 Manager 2022 take shape and for people to see this exciting title come to life. I know from personal experience that leading a team can be challenging, but it’s certainly rewarding. The F1 Manager franchise is a great opportunity for fans to put themselves in the shoes of a team principal and experience some of that for themselves. I am confident that with their own successful track record in management gaming, Frontier will deliver an enjoyable and engaging experience for fans.”
The first entry in this exciting series of games will invite players and F1® fans to own every aspect of leading a team to victory, upgrading cars and race facilities, hiring drivers and engineers, balancing budgets and driver demands, all before the race weekend kicks into gear. Once the race gets underway, stay calm under pressure and make critical decisions as you manage your team to victory.
Game Director Andy Fletcher, said, “There’s never been a better time to be a Formula 1 fan, and we’re excited to deliver a new way for F1 fans to immerse themselves in the biggest racing spectacle in the world. F1 Manager 2022 will deliver an experience for both new and long-term fans that is as authentic as it is exciting. Our commitment to the ever-changing world of Formula 1 will build a strong foundation for a long and special series that will evolve over time.”
