Football Manager 2020 Debuts on Google Stadia
Football Manager 2020 will debut on a brand new platform which is set to arrive in November. Stadia is Google’s new cloud game-streaming service, which let’s you play videogames by simply opening up a Chrome tab! With Google Stadia, there is no need to get a top end machine to play your favorite games or worry about if your current laptop, tablet or smartphone can handle the graphics or processing it to enjoy the full game experience! As games are powered by Google’s own data centers, all you need is the Google Chrome webbrowser and a fast and stable internet connection.
The Google Stadia will be the equivalent to ‘Netflix’ as there are a subscription service which let’s you play a whole range of titles without the need to wait for games to be downloaded to your desktop, tablet or smartphone. Alongside Football Manager 2020, the Google Stadia includes titles such as FINAL FANTASY XV, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, NBA 2K, The Elder Scrolls Online and 22 other titles… and more to come!
Another neat little feature is the Google Chromecast compatibility. By pre-ordering the Google Stadia Founder’s Edition or possessing a Google Chromecast you can stream your games directly to a TV in up to 4K resolution without the need for a console. This means that you are able to get surround sound, enjoy a framerate of 60 FPS along with a resolution up to 4K (depending on your internet connection) on every screen you got (as long as you got a controller or keyboard/mouse).
More information about how FM20 will work on Google Stadia is expected anywhere between August to October.

The service allows you to play a vast number of high-quality PC games for a small monthly fee. As long as the subscription is active, all games within their library will be available to play.
Currently, FM19 is only available to play in a single-player game mode (with network play added in the near future), but we expect, despite no official information about it, Football Manager 2020 to be featured in Xbox Game Pass once the game is released.
