WAITING PATIENTLY: The hotly anticipated event fans chomping at the bit

This means that we won't be seeing any news or trailers on PES 22 at E3.

No real reason has been revealed other than suggesting that the gaming company is working on 'other projects'.

With Konami's next football sim set to be released in around six months time, the withdrawal has not filled PES fans with much confidence.

The community on Reddit believe that perhaps we will see the first real PES 22 trailers at Gamescom.

PES 2022 Release Date

It's hard to predict when PES 2022 could arrive, with Konami jumping around Pro Evo's release date in recent years.

PES 2019 arrived as early as 28 August, but we think, as football returns to normality - PES 2022 is likely to arrive on Tuesday, 7 September.

PES 2022 Platforms

We now know for sure that PES 2022 will be available on all Next Gen consoles including the PS5 and the Xbox Series X|S.

It is expected that the game will also be released on PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Despite Konami and Nintendo both being Japan-based, we are yet to see the series make the jump in Nintendo Switch - but this could be on the way very soon!
