Championship Manager 5 Delayed
6:00 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Further to the rumors circulating earlier this summer, British publishing giants Eidos officially announced on Monday that the PC version of the next addition to their extremely popular soccer management sim franchise has been delayed.

Originally slated for October, the release date for the PC version of Championship Manager 5 has been pushed back at least until the holiday season. In their press release, the troubled game company warned that the game's release may be delayed even further:

Eidos is continuing to work towards release of the PC version of the game shortly before Christmas, although this may extend into the New Year. As previously stated, the much-anticipated XBox and PS2 versions of Championship Manager 5 remain firmly on track for release in Spring 2005 and the online version will be available through subscription shortly after the PC game's release.
The struggling publishing behemoth also confirmed reports that Eidos' Board of Executives are continuing discussions in regards to the company's sale. No offers have yet been made for the publishers, although officials are "currently in the process of selecting a preferred counterparty."

While there's been no official word on a Mac port of the new title, hopeful fans can look to publishing mavens Feral Interactive, who have published the last three versions of the soccer sim.
