Rumours were circulating that Real Madrid could move from FIFA to PES this year.

That looks to have been put to bed with EA signing a fresh new deal to be the official gaming partner for Los Blancos.

What next for PES?

After yesterday’s confirmation that PES 2021 will just be a “Season Update“, there is now very little hype around the new game.

ARRIVEDERCI – AC & Inter Milan look to be leaving the PES franchise

Konami is committed to executing on PES 2022 however, with a teaser released showing Pro Evo on Next Gen.

It now seems unlikely Konami will pick up any new licences for PES 2021, and hope their loyal fanbase will return for the “new” game which will have roster and kit updates.

PES 2021 will come at a “special anniversary price” to celebrate it’s 25th year and will reflect the lack of new features on the game.
