    7. FY23 releases to include Jurassic World Evolution 2: Dominion Biosyn Expansion and F1® Manager 2022 in June and August 2022 respectively, plus three new Foundry titles
    8. ED News
      1. As previously reported, following the launch of the major Odyssey expansion over a year ago, in May 2021, Elite Dangerous revenue in FY22 fell below our original expectations. We are focussing on supporting and growing our player community, and will build on the narrative aspects of Elite Dangerous during FY23.
      2. Due to the lower than expected engagement with Elite Dangerous: Odyssey on PC, and the decision to cancel the console development of this major expansion, the Board has prudently decided to fully amortise the Elite Dangerous: Odyssey capitalised intangible asset as at 31 May 2022. The resulting additional amortisation charge in FY22 is expected to be approximately £7 million.
      3. We begin FY23 in excellent shape.  Our portfolio continues to thrive, with Elite Dangerous, Jurassic World Evolution 2 and Planet Zoo, all set to benefit from new DLC during FY23. Our major new game release in FY23 is F1 Manager 2022.
        1. Please note that “Update 12” could be counted as DLC for Elite Dangerous, so don’t read too much into it
