F1 Manager 2022 was a fantastic start to the series, setting a solid foundation for a sequel to build on this year. But what F1 Manager 2023 editions can we expect? Let’s find out.
F1 Manager 2023 Editions
Frontier Developments hasn’t announced F1 Manager 2023 yet, but last year’s game gives us an idea of the editions we can expect.
Will there be an F1 Manager 2023 Deluxe Edition?
F1 Manager 2022 didn’t get a special or deluxe edition. But that could change with F1 Manager 2023 now that Frontier’s official F1 management series is more established.
Frontier could release an F1 Manager 2023 Deluxe Edition like Codemasters’ F1 games with exclusive drivers, cars, and bonus XP. If so, expect an F1 Manager 2023 deluxe edition to carry a premium price, possibly at around £59.99/$69.99/€69.99.
The standard digital and physical edition of F1 Manager 2022 retailed for £44.99/$54.99/€54.99. This was a competitive retail price compared to most licensed motorsport games, but F1 Manager 2023 could get a slight price increase.
Even if there isn’t a special or deluxe edition of F1 Manager 2023, players who pre-order the standard version will likely get early access to F1 Manager 2023.
Pre-ordering F1 Manager 2022 gave you five days of early access before the general release, so we expect F1 Manager 2023 to have a similar incentive for early adopters.
Like last year’s game, F1 Manager 2023 is expected to launch on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
F1 Manager 2022 was also released for PS4 and Xbox One, but this could change for this year’s game.
With PS5 and Xbox Series X|S more readily available, developers are moving away from last-generation formats and pouring more resources into the latest platforms.
That said, the PS4 and Xbox One are popular consoles with large, established player bases. Frontier may want to capitalise on this to maximise sales.
There’s no release date yet, F1 Manager 2023 will likely arrive in August after Codemasters’ F1 23. Judging by last year’s game, we expect Frontier to announce F1 Manager 2023 in a reveal trailer around April.
