Manchester City Football Are Working on a Mobile Game
Yes, you read that title right! Man City, the legendary football club will be working on a mobile game, alongside Capstone Games! Capstone Games will also become the club’s Official Casual Mobiel Game Partner across Asia Pacific, North America, and the United Kingdom. What can we expect from this game? So far, we don’t even know the title! But we do know that it will be a City-themed football manager.
So if you’re like any of the football manager fans we’ve met, and want to take it on the go, Man City’s going to have exactly what you’ve been craving! This isn’t their first foray into esports and gaming either. Manchester City has an esports squad in Korea, Man City Esports Korea for FIFA. But now they’re getting into gaming proper.
Online Gaming is the Future
Capstone Games are going to be developing the mobile game for Man City, and is a City-themed football manager. You can expect familiar players, kits, and the Etihad Stadium, of course. This isn’t Capstone’s first dive into football, either. Back in 2017, Capstone released Champions Manager Mobasaka, and it hit more than two million downloads within a year. That’s pretty impressive! They also released Ultimate Football Club and CSL Manager Series.
So it sounds like we can expect quality football knowledge from Man City’s mobile game. Omar Berrada, Chief Operating Officer for Manchester City has this to say:
“We are thrilled to be working with Capstone Games who have a number of exciting plans in the pipeline. “Manchester City has a strong digital-first strategy that applies to everything we do, so collaborating with an innovative partner like Capstone and engaging with their community of gamers is a great fit for us.”
Man City has done way more with esports than just this mobile game to boot. They’ve collaborated with FaZe Clan. That includes a training facility created by both FaZe Tass and Shellz, both of whom are professional esports players for FaZe.
So while we don’t have a lot of information about what the game will be yet, we’re certainly going to keep our eyes on it. A mobile football manager sounds like it could be a lot of fun, even better when backed by a legit, well-known football club like Man City.
