Aacaban de publicar una carta desde SIGAMES escrita por Miles Jacobson donde anuncian que va a haber FM21, que saldrá en más plataformas y tiendas y que tendrá novedades, pero que debido a las circunstancias que todos sabemos saldrá más tarde que otros años. Habla de la dificultad de desarrollar el juego trabajando cada uno desde su casa y con sus condicionantes familiares. En fin, paciencia este año porque nos queda más para la nueva versión.

Lo siento, no tengo tiempo para traduciarla entera ahora mismo. La copio tal cual.

 

SPORTS INTERACTIVE AND THE IMPACT OF COVID-19

It’s a bit of an understatement to say that 2020 has been a difficult year so far, and although we at Sports Interactive have had it easier than many, it’s still been a tough time for the studio.
 

Sports Interactive and the impact of COVID-19

We have enjoyed some advantages, though. Our revenue hasn’t disappeared entirely (as it has done for many businesses) and we’ve been able to do a number of things we otherwise may not have considered. For example, we allowed people to play FM20 for free for a fortnight back in March and took part in a bunch of charity initiatives including the UKIE-managed ‘Games for Carers’ programme and the Humble Black Lives Matter bundle. During this period, we’ve also provided free in-game advertising to a number of mental health charities around the world, which was particularly important to me as I believe that this disruption to everyone’s normal way of living could have serious mental health consequences if we’re not careful. Throughout all of this, though, record numbers of players have chosen to spend their own lockdown with one or more of our games… which is something we’re very grateful for.

Something else I’m very grateful for is that, rather than finding ourselves having to lay people off during this crisis, we’ve actually accelerated our hiring programme over the past few months and I’m incredibly proud that we have introduced more than 20 new members to the SI team since lockdown began… and we’re not finished yet (check out the open roles on our recently-refreshed studio website).

Most importantly of all, though, we have continued to work on our games throughout this troubled period – and we’ve managed to do this despite not being together in our office since early March. Having a ‘distributed’ workforce isn’t new to us, as some of the team have worked remotely for decades, but moving the entire team to work from home was a huge challenge. Everyone’s personal situation is different, and our main priority as a studio was to ensure that the whole team and their families remained safe, healthy and happy. After that, our priority was to ensure that every team member was able to continue to work effectively (while taking their home situation into account) so that we could continue to create and deliver great games. We’re now in a position where we’re set up to continue to work in this fashion for as long as it takes. None of us know when things will return to ‘normal’, but I would be very surprised if we’re all back in the studio working together until well into next year.

It would be great to say that this whole process has been easy, but the truth is that we’ve learned over the course of this bizarre and unprecedented global crisis that it’s a lot easier to make games when the bulk of the team are working in close physical proximity.

It’s not just been harder from a production perspective – it doesn’t help that the world of football that we aim to simulate in our games is also in such a world of flux. Some leagues have confirmed their plans, some are still up in the air (although we are very much ‘in the loop’ with many of the possible decisions), the transfer window has moved in England at least, there are new emergency rules that may, or may not, be present next season. And there’s a lot more besides.

That all said, the team have done an absolutely incredible job in the circumstances and I couldn’t be prouder of them or prouder to be a part of the team.

We’ve been very quiet about future plans throughout this period, but then I never like us to talk about our plans until everything is definitively settled. I know that frustrates some of our fans, but it’s a policy that’s worked well for us in the 25+ years we’ve been making games. What I can confirm today is that, despite all the problems going on in the world, there will be new Football Manager games released later this year. They will be delivered a little later than we’d originally planned, but they’ll have exceptionally strong feature sets… albeit different to those we thought we’d settled on back in January when I completed my ‘dream feature set’.

It has taken a monumental effort to make this possible. The flexibility the team have shown through this period has been incredible; we’ve been changing scope, both upwards and downwards, on an almost weekly basis (and often as a result of changes in people’s personal circumstances). I firmly believe you’ll all appreciate the improvements and new features this year – and for us to have created the games that we’re going to deliver later this year during a global pandemic is something else I’m very proud of.

Our games will be on more platforms and available on more stores than ever before when they’re released later this year but, with regards to features and release dates, it’s a little too early for us to talk about the specifics right now. Please cut us a little bit of slack and rest assured that we will once again deliver a set of games that provide hundreds of hours of entertainment and remain the best value for money on the market – and something to help you escape from the real world at the moment, at least for a while.

We look forward to returning to something approaching normality in the (hopefully) near future, but, for now, we’re doing everything we can to continue keeping you entertained in the manner that only Football Manager can.

Stay safe,

Miles

 

 

Vamos a tener paciencia y seguir dando caña a la ediciones 2020.

 

Saludos.

Como les gusta a los ingleses enrollarse y meter parrafadas que no dicen nada. Ese comunicado, ¿qué significa? ¿"estamos vivos"? 

Yo me conformaría con que arreglaran la IA, la base de datos de equipos humildes (que no sean ingleses, claro) y que los resultados no dependieran tanto de la moral,, sino de la táctica utilizada. 

Un buen cambio podría ser el que puedas colocar a los jugadores en el lugar que te diera la gana del campo y no en "agujeros" predefinidos.

Pero este año esperaré a la demo y veré si es "jugable" o han seguido igual que con el FM20, lo que es muy probable porque de un año a otro simplemente le hacen un lavado de cara y luego le ponen parches a go-go.

No esperaria gran cosa para el 21. Pero a SI seguramente para el 22 SI tenga que replantear su estrategia. 

FIFA para el 21 anuncio una simulacion del modo carrera mucho mas completo, con simulador en 2D, con la posibilidad de dar indicaciones durante juego y la de tomar mandos durante el desarrollo del partido. Representa la primera incursion fuerte de FIFA en el mundo controlado por el FM (hasta ahora el modo carrera de FIFA era muy basico). Si funciona bien, EA puede seguir avanzando en este aspecto. No llegara nunca a ser el FM pero tendra la jugabilidad de modo manager mas que suficiente para que quienes no se lleven con el FM, puedan hacer un modo carrera.

A SI no le queda mucha mas estrategia que seguir avanzando en su unico formato, pero puede ser que simplemente lleve a complejizar las cosas.

Ya existió el FIFA manager y quedó en el olvido, así que mucho creo que tendrían que hacer para ser un competidor real de FM en cuestión de manager de futbol.

Por mí si se quieren ahorrar el de este año y dedicarse al 22 de pleno, mejor que mejor.

 Opino igual, mejor esperarse al fm2022 y ahorrarse gastar el tiempo en un fm20 mejorado. Directamente que vayan al fm2022, este año ha sido atípico y anormal para todos por la puñetera pandemia. Secundo a @Keother_ .

Veamos. Competir con el FM en materia Manager es imposible. Ahora bien, en las ultimas versiones, especialmente en el FM20, el juego adquirio un nivel de complejidad, excesivamente alto. Y a SI no le queda otra que ir por esos lados.

Ahora, El FIFA21, por lo que vi, tiene un modo de carrera que es al estilo versiones anteriores del FM/CM. Visualizado en en 2D, instrucciones en el momento, cambios, pero con el adicional de que permite pausar y tomar los controles en el mando del partido. Deja de ser algo de hacer un par de cosas, fichajes y darle simular y tener mas opciones. 

Repito: competirle en el aspecto Manager, no le compite. Pero EA se esta metiendo en terreno de SI con su FIFA21 y se va a seguir metiendo, porque la gente lo pedia.

Me parece normal tomando en cuenta que hay ligas que todavía no terminan temporada.Yo preferiría que se enfocaran en cosas como agregar diseños de estadios.
