When does F1 Manager 2023 come out?
Frontier has announced F1 Manager 2023, and it will arrive much earlier than last year. Players will be able to climb back onto the pit wall way ahead of expectations.
This is very similar to F1 23, which is arriving earlier than last year too. The official F1 Manager 2023 release date is 31 July.
Like last year, there is some early access to be had in F1 Manager 2023. If you buy the Deluxe Edition you will get four days of early access, allowing you to play from 27 July.
You can get F1 Manager 2023 on PS4 & PS5, Xbox One & Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Both editions are available to pre-order digitally now, but physical copies for consoles will not be available until a later date.
F1 Manager 2023 will cost £44.99/$54.99/€54.99 on every platform, with the Deluxe Edition coming in at £54.99/$64.99/€64.99. But what exactly will you experience? Well, let's take a look at the changes and features for F1 Manager 2023!
F1 Manager 2023 Features
So what can players expect from the next F1 Manager title?
Well, we have had a preview of F1 Manager 2023 thanks to Game Director Andy Fletcher, Executive Producer Stuart Warren and Senior Producer Lloyd Morgan-Moore.
A new staff member, the Sporting Director, will help develop your pit crew while you manage their training. Develop their skills in all aspects of the stop, but you'll have to balance speed and consistency.
The full 23-race 2023 calendar will be in F1 Manager 2023 along with its six sprint weekends while F2 & F3 sessions will be simulated in the background of your save, allowing you to keep an eye on the performance and development of future talent.
Driver development is also getting an overhaul, with players having to pick a development focus for their driver. Meanwhile, drivers' skills will erode if they are out of the car for a long time or start getting bad results.
There is also a new game mode called Race Replay. This mode will let you take control of any team for race day and use the real-life qualifying results for each Grand Prix, so you could try and convert Lando Norris' P3 in Spain into points, or win with Max Verstappen from P15 in Saudi Arabia.
There is more though, as Race Replay will also have a "Race Moments" option where you take over a team at a certain point in the race and have to achieve an objective.
