Konami May Not Release Pro Evolution Soccer Anymore (Update)
Update: We have some great news for fans of Pro Evolution Soccer. The game isn’t going anywhere as confirmed in a Tweet from Adam Bhatti. He said that the future of Pro Evo is safe and exciting things are ahead.

That’s a relief for fans of the series and hopefully, we will hear something regarding a new game at E3.
Original Story: We just can’t figure out what’s going on with Konami. They first removed Kojima from the picture, then cancelled Silent Hills and now it seems Pro Evolution Soccer has said its final goodbyes. Which means we could potentially see the end on Fifa vs Pro Evo debate. Konami’s recent financials gave us a reason to believe that Konami may not release Pro Evolution this year, or any other year for that matter considering the amount of unpopular decisions they have been making lately. According to the financials, the Japan based company is only releasing one global game this year and that is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. On the other hand, Pro Evolution Soccer Community Manager Adam Bhatti was asked if the report is true, to which he replied with a smiley:
It’s hard to believe Konami would drop Pro Evo then again, anything is expected from the company at this point. Well, at least we know The Phantom Pain is coming out on time.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in September.
