Football Manager dev, Sports Interactive, working on two unannounced projects

Football Manager dev, Sports Interactive, working on two unannounced projects

Speaking at last week’s Develop conference, studio director Miles Jocabson teased us with the news that there are currently two as yet unannounced projects in the works.

“We kind of have two other things in development at the moment,” said Jacobson. “One of them does [have ] in the title, the other one still has ‘football’ in the title.”

Jacobson’s comments came in the context of explaining how the studio operates and which producers were working on which projects. He refused to talk about the nature of the projects any further.

Of course, the curiosity light is brighter when it comes to the second of the two games, the one that “still has ‘football’ in the title”. Given the pinpoint focus of Sports Interactive (and their technology) it would be incredibly surprising if the studio were making a game that doesn’t involve you playing as a football manager, but stranger things have happened.

You may remember the ill-fated launch of MMO Football Manager Live back in 2008. Given the way things are going in this industry, and  (hopefully) the lessons the team learned from Football Manager Live, a second try at the western MMO market is a possibility.

The studio is currently working an Football Manager Online for the Asian market.
