Football Manager 2013 Summary
Rooney has new hair; FM 13 has a Classic mode. What's changed this year?
Miles Jacobson from Sports Interactive has revealed the cracked version of Football Manager 2013, which occurred May 12th of this year, contained a significant flaw that let the studio track pirated copies.
He revealed 10.1 million copies were pirated, with 3.2m from China alone, followed by Turkey with 1.05m and then Portugal with 781,785. Even the Vatican had a copy.
In a move surprising virtually no Football management fan ever, Sports Interactive has announced Football Manager 2014. The studio says there's "more than 1,000 improvements" from FM 2013 alone.
They also confirm Linux versions will launch alongside PC, and that cloud saving lets managers "pursue a single career" from anywhere. Steam Workshop integration for creators.
Sports Interactive Director Miles Jacobsen has announced that Football Manager 2013 is the best-selling game in the series, reaching back through its Championship Manager days in the 1990's.
Sports Interactive's Football Manager series has enjoyed a bumper crop of sales with Football Manager 2013, which studio boss Miles Jacobson partly attributes to their 'time conscious' Classic Mode.
There's also a distinct lack of piracy happening with FM13 compared to past entries, and they've seen growth in regions like Turkey. They're "significantly up" when the market has been down.
Has EA finally overthrown leaders Sports Interactive?
