Own Mac and want to play Football Manager 2014 on it? You can. Studio director of Sega Sports Interactive – Miles Jacobson – recently announced that their forthcoming game; Football Manager 2014 is all set to release on Linux and will include cross platform gameplay including Windows, Mac and Linux. He revealed this information from his official account on Facebook.
He was quite precise with the version of Linux the game will be supporting that is Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS). To put it into his words, “For the more technically minded, the flavor of Linux we’ll be supporting is Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS)”
It was disappointing to see that Jacobson didn’t reveal any release date or any information about the game whatsoever except it will be playable over all PC platforms.
How this works is simpler than you think. Suppose you own Linux, Mac, and Microsoft Windows and you want to play the game on all these. You will be simply able to via Steam. Jacobson wrote, “So if you have a MacBook, Windows laptop and Linux desktop (for example) you’ll be able to play the game on each of those machines via Steam.”
He further said that Football Manager 2013 is currently the best-selling game of Football Manager Franchise and any suggestion from the community is welcome. If you have any suggestions that you would want to share with the studio, don’t forget to share them on the game’s official interactive forums.
