From Konami, they had already prepared the cover of the next edition of the title together with Cristiano Ronaldo and other stars of the world of the beautiful sport
For a few weeks, the world of football has been paralyzed before the possible departure of FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi. And it is that everything pointed to that the Argentine star tried to leave the Blaugrana entity for various reasons before which he was not comfortable in the Blaugrana club. Something that could have ruined the next edition of Konami’s mythical football simulator in its 2021 edition.
In this sense, a few weeks ago the Japanese company gave the green light/permission to the cover of eFootball PES 2021 in which Lionel Messi appeared along with other ball wizards such as Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, Marcus Rashford from Manchester United and Alphonso Davies from FC Bayer which could have ruined Konami’s plans having to abandon said cover in case the Argentine set course for another entity.
Fortunately for Konami’s plans, this will not happen as Lionel Messi has confirmed in a recent press conference that he will finally keep his contract with FC Barcelona at least until the next year 2021.
Consequently, eFootball PES 2021 will continue to feature the announced cover in what will be an intergenerational title as an update from last year’s edition as Konami is concentrating on an edition with Unreal Engine 5 for the next generation of consoles on PlayStation 5 and Xbox X series.
We recall you that eFootball PES 2021 will be officially launched on September 15 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC through Valve’s platform, Steam.
So far everything we acknowledge at the moment concerning the football PES 2021. We will update this article as new details become known so if you want to stay up to date on gaming news, keep reading “ Nintendo inquirer”.
