PES Brand Manager Jonathan Murphy Leaves Konami

By   /   Sep 16, 2014

Jonathan Murphy, the senior European brand manager of Pro Evolution Soccer is leaving Konami after having been with the company for more than 16 years.

Murphy became senior European brand manager at Konami in May 1998 and was charged with the company’s new football series, starting with the first Pro Evolution Soccer which was released in October 2001. Since then, he has been responsible for building the public image of the PES franchise in Europe and has been successful without a doubt.

In his career, he has worked with all fourteen PES titles, where in addition to his position, he was also responsible for marketing, packaging and content creation.

Posting on Twitter yesterday, Murphy said that he was stepping down to pursue other interests. After having worked in the same division for more than 16 years, the guy does indeed deserve a change of scenery.

“After 16 years at Konami I’ve decided to seek new challenges,” he Tweeted.

PES 2015 is scheduled for release on November 13 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. The game is powered by the same FOX Engine used for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

It’s also the first installment in the series to be developed in collaboration between Tokyo and the recently opened UK PES Productions studio in Windsor.

A demo for all console versions will also be released on September 17, a week before the FIFA 15 release date.
