Football Manager 2014 coming to Linux, will feature cross-platform play

Sega's management simulator Football Manager 2014 is set for a release on Linux and will feature cross-platform play across Linux, Mac and Windows PC, studio director of Sports Interactive, Miles Jacobson, revealed on Facebook.

"For the more technically minded, the flavor of Linux we'll be supporting it [sic] Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS)," Jacobson wrote.

Although he wasn't ready to share Football Manager 2014's release date or features, he did reveal that the game will be playable across all platforms for the price of one.

"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," Jacobson wrote.

He also announced via the Facebook post that Football Manager 2013 is now the best selling game in the Football Manager series. The Football Manager community is encouraged to share feature suggestions for Football Manager 2014 on Sports Interactive's official forums.

Thank you, Anonymous.
