PES 2020: We’re ahead of FIFA 20 this year, claims Konami

Konami continues to add more teams to its growing roster of exclusive licences in the upcoming eFootball PES 2020, ensuring that PES has a chance of fighting back against FIFA this year. The last few months have seen both EA Sports and the Japanese publisher make a series of high profile announcements and Konami believes they’re winning the battle. European PES brand manager, Lennaert Bonzein, told RealSport:  “Obviously they have so new modes but I am following them and watching them and I would say this year, in terms of announcements and stuff, we are ahead. I’m not saying that because I am biased, it’s just a fact." He added: “We follow the product, we watch what that they’re announcing, what they are doing. We are keeping a very close eye on the game. To be fair, they’ve announced a few things, but they haven’t announced a lot – which is a bit strange in my opinion, because usually, they are going out quite big. If you look at the July for us, it was very crucial for us in terms of our partner club announcements and it was something people did not expect.” PES 2020 has a September 10 release date on PS4 and Xbox One, while FIFA 20 launches just a few weeks later on September 27.
