This year, Pro Evolution Soccer is looking to make up ground on the FIFA juggernaut as the gaming world moves into the next generation. Konami’s simulator has always been lauded as the graphical powerhouse, and 2021 should be no different.
Here’s everything we know about PES 2021 so far, from release date and which official club licenses the series is carrying this year, to new features on the horizon, the shift to next-gen consoles, and plenty more.
PES 2021 release date
Konami has yet to officially pen in any release dates for their 20th Pro Evolution Soccer title, but we can have a fairly decent punt at when we’ll see it on shelves. Most other PES releases have come in September. Expect that again this year too.
