Konami's eFootball 2022 has not gotten off to the best of starts, to say the least... but it looks like there could finally be a light at the end of the tunnel for fans of the formerly PES franchise.
Konami has confirmed that a major update will be coming to eFootball 2022 earlier than expected.
Major update coming soon
Some eFootball users have received an email from Konami, which you can see written in Portuguese in the image below, which details a big update that will be coming to the game.
The email also states that players that already had Konami ID will be able to use eFootball points in the popular game mode, myclub on PES 21.
The email confirms that the major update will arrive in April, 2022.
We don't have a specific date just yet, but by the looks of it, you can expect the update to arrive in late April.
Things are looking up!
The gap between FIFA 22 and eFootball this season has been enormous, with the two barely comparable in terms of an enjoyable football sim experience.
Despite this though, eFootball has managed to earn selection to be part of this year's Commonwealth Esports Championships showcase.
This does beg the question of why, and it could be as simple as EA not wanting to take part in the games.
The cost is also a likely factor with eFootball free-to-play, while any agreements with EA would come at a cost.
Along with eFootball, two other games have been confirmed as part of the lineup for this summer's event.
DOTA 2 and Rocket League will also feature, with all three titles hosting an open category and a female category.
CEO of the Commonwealth Games Federation Katie Sadleir said "Alongside the Global Esports Federation, we are delighted to unveil three major titles for the Commonwealth Esports Championships in Birmingham this summer."
"There is no doubt this innovative and exciting event will create new learnings and opportunities for us to further explore esports."
Commonwealth Games Minister Nigel Huddleston added that "Esports has connected millions of young people across the Commonwealth, providing entertainment and a vital sense of community."
"The Commonwealth Esports Championships is a major vote of confidence in the West Midlands' and UK's thriving esports industry and an exciting chance to look at how this can be brought into the Commonwealth Sport Movement."
