eFootball 2022 Delays Its First Major Update to Next Year
Konami has delayed the first major update for eFootball 2022 to next year and canceled the Premium Player Pack in the game.
When this free-to-play version of Pro Evolution Soccer launched earlier, it turned out to be quite a disaster with hilarious glitches and weird bugs. A comparison between the new free-to-play game and FIFA only added fuel to the fire proving that it was one of the worst sports games and a blemish on the name of Pro Evolution Soccer.
We would like to inform you that the v1.0.0 update for eFootball™ 2022 (available now on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, and Steam®), scheduled to be released on November 11, 2021, has been postponed until Spring 2022. Also, we would like to announce the cancellation and automatic refunds of eFootball™ 2022 Premium Player Pack, which includes items that can only be used in-game after the v1.0.0 update.
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. 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.
Also, we have decided to cancel the preorder for eFootball™ 2022 Premium Player Pack, which includes items that can only be used in-game after the update.
Konami did release a minor update for the game on all platforms that addresses a number of bug fixes, but it is still far from playable, or coming to the quality that was seen in their Pro Evolution Soccer franchise.
