Konami is reportedly planning a huge franchise shake-up for Pro Evolution Soccer, with the upcoming PES 2022 set to go free-to-play before the year’s out.
That’s according to Andy Robison from VGC, who revealed on the latest Off the Record podcast that “Konami are flicking to life,” with the company “going to go properly free-to-play and really change it up” in regards to PES 2022.
He also noted that the recently-launched playlets for New Football Game (aka PES 2022) is a sign of how the publisher is going to mix things up.
PES 2022 has yet to attract a release date but is noteworthy for having been in the works for a few years now, as last year’s entry in the franchise was skipped in favour of an update for PES 2020. This year’s outing, however, is a full-fledged instalment that looks to take full advantage of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
