When is the Football Manager 2019 January Transfer Update release date?

I see you. You’ve got the itch, haven’t you? The Football Manager 2019 January Transfer Update has got you coming back for me. Unfortunately, the new FM 19 January data update doesn’t simply get added to your game at the end of January as soon as the transfer window slams shut. Instead, SI is busy working hard to ensure that the Football Manager 2019 January Transfer Update release date is as close to the month as possible. Here’s when you can expect it.

What is the Football Manager 2019 January Transfer Update?

Serving as both a widespread update of worldwide clubs’ transfer dealings during the January Transfer Window as well as attribute upgrades and downgrades for a whole host of players, the Football Manager 2019 January Transfer Update acts as a mini-reboot for each entry. As such, players are champing at the bit to play an updated, more fully-realized (and realistic) version of FM 19 that accurately reflects January transfer window comings and goings as well as who is blowing hot and cold in the world of soccer.

When is the Football Manager 2019 January Transfer Update release date?

Unfortunately, the FM 19 January Transfer Update won’t be seeing the light of day in January 2019, that’s for sure.

As per Football Manager director Miles Jacobson on Twitter, the January Transfer Update release date is tentatively set for “mid-March.” That’s due to transfer windows across the globe still being open as well as, presumably, the amount of work it takes to finely tune the delicate balance of the game’s ecosystem without breaking anything. With over 30,000 players in the database, that’s a lot harder than it sounds.

For prior reference, last year’s update arrived on March 1. Jacobson’s estimate puts this year’s FM 19 date update slightly further out. Still, I’m sure you can do something to pass the time until then. Have you heard of a game called Football Manager 2019?
