Pro Evolution Soccer is “ready to make a comeback” this year, according to the head of Konami Europe.
It’s not been revealed officially, but PES 2015 is set to hit next-gen platforms this year. It is powered by the publisher’s new Fox Engine and is being co-developed by a new UK studio for the first time.
“I can’t say certain things about PES 2015, but we are ready to make a comeback,” said Euro boss Shinji Hirano. “I cannot give details on exactly what we are doing with the UK studio, but they are working on the next project and looking at the needs of the European people. It’s about globalising the franchise, so it is not just being developed by Japanese people.
“We know what’s been going wrong with PES, we are working on that. The next version is totally changed. 2014 is a transitional year for the franchise, so expect big things.”
