Is F1 2022 Manager free? That's a question a lot of fans of the pinnacle of motorsport are asking right now.

It may seem out there, but free-to-play games are more popular than ever. So, here's everything you need to know!

Is F1 2022 Manager free?

Free-to-play games are extremely popular these days. Titles like Fortnite and Apex Legends are some of the most popular games in the world. So, is F1 Manager 2022 going to join them?

Well, going off the game's pre-order information, that's not going to be the case. The title is currently on sale for PC, but it's coming in at over £40. The same is true for both the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game too.


Maybe this is a good thing

Obviously, being forced to pay for F1 Manager 2022 may not seem great, but the developers need to get their money somehow. If F1 Manager 2022 was free, then the game would have to generate revenue elsewhere.

Titles usually get their money from the cost of the game, but those that are free must do so elsewhere. Typically, this is through microtransactions, one of the most hated things in modern gaming.

Plus, Frontier Developments would need to produce regular post-release content to justify this. That would be a huge commitment for a studio that has already put in an immense amount of effort to complete F1 Manager 2022.

Trailer and release date


If you haven't seen the latest F1 Manager 2022 trailer, you're missing out. The Gameplay Trailer was released last month and shows us what to expect when the game launches on 30th August!
