F1 Manager 2022 official artwork of one of the cars

[Update #2]: Thanks to a massive outcry, F1 Manager 2022 will not be getting abandoned after a mere two months.

[Update]: F1 Manager 2022 has now arrived, and while the base game is solid, it's going to need a bit more polish before it can be considered truly great.

Considering the absolutely gigantic popularity of Football Manager and similar simulator games, it should come as little surprise to hear that Formula 1 has decided to throw their hat into the ring as well. As such they have teamed up with Frontier Developments, the studio behind Planet Coaster and Jurassic World Evolution, to work on the supposedly highly realistic F1 Manager 2022.

As the name would imply, F1 Manager 2022 will give you full control over your team, their finances, and even the type of cars designs they'll use. From there you'll need to figure out which areas to focus your attention and budget on, pick and choose the best personnel you can, and naturally, micromanage each and every race in order to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible, even if the changing weather or track conditions result in some last-minute adjustments.

No gameplay preview has been shared just yet, but you can get a tiny sneak peek at what F1 Manager 2022 will look like through the freshly posted announcement trailer. Have a gander:

As for the release date, nothing concrete has been announced just yet. That said, you can expect to see F1 Manager 2022 land onto PC, PlayStation and Xbox at some point this Summer 2022.

Once we get an actual date, or even just a proper gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a few more bits of information about F1 Manager 2022 over at the official website.
