Football Manager Live is doing well and going according to plan, according to Sports Interactive’s Miles Jacobson.
So far, the game has grown to 23 game worlds with 1,000 users each. Jacobson’s pleased as punch.
“It’s going alright. The Sega ops team is being very proactive in launching new worlds when existing ones are full,” Jacobson told GI.biz.
“So it’s kind of going to plan – obviously if it was going perfectly we’d have 1 billion subscribers playing,” he joked, “and eventually 6 billion, but realistically with the economy the way it is we’re doing pretty well. We’re certainly doing well enough for SEGA to keep pushing us with more content, and certainly the flexibility of the business model is there.”

Beautiful Game Studios’ Roy Meredith has said he wouldn’t want to pay money for SI Games’ online footy sim, Football Manager Live.
“I have played Football Manager Live and I don’t really get why I’d spend money on it because it’s too deep for me to want,” said Meredith to Videogamer.
“I like Football Manager, I like playing it by myself. Football Manager Live is just a bit too time consuming for me, and I understand there will be a market for it but not me personally.”
Championship Manager 09 is out in April.

MCV’s reporting that Football Manager Live will launch on January 23, at a cost of £30.
The retail game comes complete with a whopping four months’ free play.
“Football Manager Live is a very different game to Football Manager – imagine a cross between Football Manager, fantasy league, eBay and social networking and you’ll be just about there,” said Sports Interactive boss Miles Jacobson.
“We’re targeting a slightly more mass market audience than with the Football Manager series. If FM is The Times’ sports section, then FM Live is the Daily Mirror’s sports section, and is the perfect game for the lapsed FM gamer who doesn’t have the time to put into FM Live’s older brother anymore.”

Speaking to Evo Gamer, Sports Interactive’s Miles Jacobson has confirmed that Football Manager Live is almost complete. Ish.
“We’re pretty close to finishing the first iteration now, as in the code that will be released,” he said. “The game will likely never be ‘finished’ because, like FM, there are loads of ideas for features, and we are taking a stance of ‘constant development,’ meaning that there will be new features and updates every few months for those that subscribe to the game, which will be part of the subscription.”
The MMO version of the nonsensically successful football management simulation has been in beta for many moons, so news the game is nearing a releasable form will be welcome to fans. Much more through the link, and more from Miles soon, hopefully.

Here. There are 3,000 to be grabbed, so if you fancy trying your hand at playing a football management simulation on the internet, there’s no better place to be. In all seriousness, we hate football, but SI’s games do stupidly well for a reason. Knock yourself out.
