Football Manager 2017

Football Manager 2017 will simulate a number of Brexit scenarios.

The new edition of the popular video game - which allows users to manage their own football team - will have a range of scenarios relating to Britain's decision to exit the European Union.

Miles Jacobson, Sports Interactive director, said: "We usually try and keep politics out of the game because nobody wants it rammed down their throat. But we were left with an interesting situation this year when the people of Britain voted to leave the EU and it wouldn't have felt right to leave that out. It's something we had to reflect in the game.

"As a result we've decided to go down another route, and have included every possible outcome in the game, using artificial intelligence and percentage chances to make every game different."

As users move through the game, they will watch on as Britain chooses just how to exit the EU. Their job will be to lessen the effect and consequences it has on their team.

Miles added to The Telegraph newspaper: "There is even the outside chance that non-UK players could end up having to apply for work permits to remain in the UK the day after Brexit. It's a tiny chance but it could happen in your game."

Football Manager 2017 will be released on November 4.
