Newsbrief: Football Manager developer Sports Interactive has said that the Android version of its popular management franchise, released earlier this month, has seen the worst rate of piracy ever in the series.

Sports Interactive studio director Miles Jacobson said that Football Manager Handheld has seen a piracy ratio of 9:1, due in part to there being "no working copy protection on the platform currently."

He admitted to Eurogamer that if the game hasn't hit financial targets within a couple of months' time, Sports Interactive does not plan to bring the next edition of the game to the Android platform.

"It's really disappointing that there are so many people out there who love our work, and spend countless hours being entertained by it, but don't think we deserve to get paid for that entertainment," he said.
