Sports Interactive and SEGA have this week announced that Football Manager 2012 is set for release on Friday October 21st 2011! A demo will be released beforehand, likely once the game goes gold (as per previous years) and again your save game will be compatible with the full game at release so that you can carry it over if you want.
