Konami Digital Entertainment has released a statement informing gamers that they will not be presenting at this years E3 Expo in June which obviously means there will be no PES 2022 reveal. The news dropped at around midnight last night, here is the statement in full:
"Due to timing we will not be ready to present at E3 this year," Konami writes. "We want to reassure our fans that we are in deep development on a number of key projects, so please stay tuned for some updated in the coming months. While we are not participating this year, we have great respect for the ESA and know that 2021 will be a great success. We will continue to support the ESA and wish the best to all participants at this year's show."
The Entertainment Software Association or ESA also released a short statement showing their support for Konami and their decision not to present at E3 2021:
"We support our partner Konami's decision to not participate in E3 this year and are excited to see what they’ll be announcing in the future when they're ready to do so. We can't wait for their return to E3 2022, but in the meantime, we look forward to sharing all of the highly-anticipated reveals, programming and so much more at this year's E3."
Konami made the decision to release a carry over version of PES 2020 via a season update for PES 2021 giving the developers an extra year to work on the next gen switch to PS5 with, what we assume, the plan to avoid the issues of the PES 2014 next gen switch. Hopefully it wont be long before we here some news on this years title.
