With the release of Pro Evolution Soccer 16, we saw some issues with roster that were easily avoidable. Konami took too long to implement the summer deals and the teams were woefully out of date.
However, they will not be repeating the same mistakes with PES 17. In fact, PES 17 will have a day one update to implement current signings and weekly updates will be released to update stats and details.
We let ourselves down with the rosters issues last year. Basically, we took too long to implement the summer deals and the teams were woefully out of date.
There will be a day one update to ensure all current signings are implemented. People want the biggest stars at their club to be available, and we will make sure they are – along with all the key stats as to how they are performing. These, too, will be updated on a weekly basis to reflect their infield performances.
Having the best clubs and players available to the player isn’t easy. Licensing a constant battle as well and this EA scored La Liga license. However, Konami has “a couple of aces up our sleeves, though, so, yes, people should keep the faith.”
In other PES 17 news, FIFA 17 story mode isn’t bothering Konami at all. In fact, Adam Bhatti stated that PES have been offering various game modes that offer similar content, but on a greater scale.
PES 17 is to arrive later this year on consoles and PC.
