eFootball 2022 Delays Its Biggest Patch Six Days Before Launch And Gives Worrying Update, Doesn't Look Good

Konami's eFootball 2022 was due to receive a game-changing patch on Thursday but the company have now delayed it until Spring 2022 - when the season is nearly over.


The company decided to completely rebrand the Pro Evolution Soccer series with a free-to-play edition this year and it was met with a furious response.

Many believe the game wasn't finished at launch and Konami quickly got to work on Version 1.0.0, which would bring major fixes.


However, a statement published in the early hours of this morning has indicated that won't be happening.

"We have been working diligently towards distributing an update that will bring new content to the game, including a new mode where you can strengthen and play with an original team, as well as support for mobile devices on November 11, 2021," Konami said.

"Unfortunately, we have concluded that more time is needed to deliver the product in the quality that will meet the expectations of our users and have decided to postpone the delivery.


"We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this causes our users and other stakeholders who have been looking forward to this title.

We apologise again for the inconvenience. All production staff will continue to make sincere efforts to deliver satisfying contents in spring 2022. Thank you for your patience."

Konami have also decided to pull the controversial Premium Player Packs from the store and all pre-orders will be refunded automatically.


Many now believe the game will never reach a proper state and believe it'll be 'dead' within a few months.

One fan said: "Greed often leads to an easy death. RIP to our beloved PES. Game over."

Another added: "Spring 2022? Such a fu**ing joke. For the other hand, now I don't have to choose between eFootball and FIFA anymore, since there is only 1 option. eFootball had the worst release in gaming history."


While a third put: "So it launches as soon as the season ends? It'll be out of date."

At the time of writing, eFootball 2022 remains the worst-rated game on Steam with 20,406 of 22.927 reviews being negative.
