Football Manager 2020 Records Highest Player Base Due To Coronavirus

Coronavirus is probably the scariest factor nowadays, which pushes people to self-isolate themselves from the public and spend some time at home. The lack of entertainment usually drives these people to step into the gaming world, which can offer a substantial amount of fun.

Shortly after Steam has gathered around 20 million concurrent players, with CS: GO getting up to 1 million players, and Dota 2 stepping in the second place, the expectations for these numbers to rise have grown by a lot.

Covid-19 inspired lockdowns that are currently in power in multiple countries may discover even other video games being favorited by all of the people whom countries suffer the intensive spread of the virus.

With that being said, the third game that notices a massive increase in the player base, and it is a part of Steam, is Football Manager 2020, which is a football management simulator developed by Sports Interactive and published by Sega.

Miles Jacobson, director of Football Manager, has announced this milestone and advises everyone to keep safe and cope well.

According to the official Steam Stats, today’s peak of Football Manager is at 89020, which is higher than the first praised number of players.

Gaming has grown into one of, if not the most significant entertainment industries. They may serve well to those countries who cannot contain and fight against the Coronavirus outbreak. Residents in most of the countries are currently facing a 14-day window of self-isolation, to minimize the risk of further Coronavirus infections.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
