Xbox Game Pass gets Football Manager 2022

The developers of the popular Football Manager game this week confirmed that the 2022 release of the game would be available on Xbox Game Pass from launch, cloud support included. While the 2020 launch included Google Stadia, the game has been absent from cloud platforms since, with this Football Manager 2022 launch on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate being a big deal.

Following the successful return of Football Manager to Xbox last year we’re delighted to announce that FM22 and FM22 Xbox Edition will be available with Xbox Game Pass from Day One when both titles launch on November 9th.

In another first for the series, Game Pass Ultimate members playing FM22 Xbox can continue their journey on any supported device through Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Luna’s Big Week

Amazon Luna had a huge week with the reveal of its new Family channel, couch mode, and new hardware expansions as well. Further, Megaman 11, Smite, and Dice Legacy also joined Luna+ this week.

New GeForce Now games

Nvidia added 10 new games to GeForce Now this week, including Life is Strange: True Colors. It was also confirmed that Ubisoft’s upcoming Far Cry 6 and Riders Republic would both be available to stream from day one on the platform. Rainbox Six Siege is also currently free to play, which includes playing through GFN.
