Football Manager 2014 is coming out at the end of next month, which is good news for fans of the long-running football management simulator and less good news for their long-suffering loved ones.
The game will be released on October 31, its manufacturer SI has confirmed.
The franchise, which has a reputation for incredible levels of depth and accuracy, has been teasing new developments in the latest edition of the game for several weeks.
FM2013 was the most successful version of the game yet in terms of sales, with 940,000 copies of the game sold by the end of March 2013.
Such is the effect the game has on some fans that, according to Iain Macintosh in the Metro, it has been cited by name in 35 divorce cases in Britain.
