Women’s football, thanks to the current World Cup, has never been so popular. EA Sports, in any case, started to include female athletes in its games as early as 2015, when it launched on the FIFA 16 market. Konami, however, has always excluded them, and apparently will also do so in eFootball PES 2020 .
During an interview granted to GameSpot, the European brand managerLennart Bobzien said: “I personally support women’s football and I am following the World Cup closely. In any case, we currently have no plans to integrate the women in eFootball PES 2020“ . The rights of the World Cup, both female and male, are in the hands of EA Sports, but nothing would prohibit Konami from representing women in any other way. The same Manchester United, partner club of PES 2020 , in 2018 has inaugurated a female team, that next year will compete in the maximum English division.
We take the opportunity to remind you that eFootball PES 2020 will be launched on September 10th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Today, Bobzien himself explained the reason that led Konami to include eFootball in the PES 2020 title .
