F1 Manager 2022, a management simulation based on the iconic racing series, will be released this summer, allowing fans to immerse themselves further in the role of an F1 team principal. On the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, F1 Manager 2022 will be released. It will also be available on Windows PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store at the same time.
Formula One, as well as the development series Formula 2 and Formula 3, have licenced F1 Manager 2022. As team principals, players must promote, demote, hire, and/or fire personnel; keep up with week-to-week developments on the car; balance budgets with the needs of celebrity drivers; and make in-race decisions about tyre, pit strategy, and other team orders.
F1 Manager 2022 will be a more detailed management simulation than Codemasters’ extremely popular My Team mode, which debuted two years ago with F1 2020. The main distinction is that it will not include the hands-on racing gameplay that is featured in each event.

Frontier recently released Jurassic World Evolution 2 and the Elite Dangerous: Odyssey expansion in 2021, and F1 Manager 2022 is the company’s first licenced sports video game.
