Over 1.2m people played Football Manager games in the last month

It sure looks like the Football Manager games continue to have a pretty sizeable audience.

That's going off some tweets from the franchise's director Miles Jacobson OBE (pictured) of Sports Interactive, who took to Twitter (below) on Sunday to share some stats about how the titles were performing.

Jacobson said that its PC title Football Manager 2018 saw 67,098 concurrent players on Steam - beating the close-to-60,000 figure the game had boasted beforehand.

As if that wasn't enough, over 1.2m people have played Football Manager games over the last month. That includes the mobile and PC versions of the hit management simulator.

A large part of the reason the game will have been so popular recently will no doubt be the World Cup, which - particularly in the UK - absolutely dominated the cultural conversation.
