Konami and Bandai Namco announced that the scheduled beta testing for both Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 and DRAGON BALL FighterZ will skip the PC. The big publishers did not reveal the reasons why there won’t be any PC beta testing, however we are almost certain that this has to do with the usual data-mining that occurs on the PC platform.

The online beta phase for Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 will begin on July 20th and will feature the new 3v3 online co-op mode. Obviously Konami wants to test its online code before releasing the game to the public, which would make sense to also run a closed PC beta testing.
On the other hand, Bandai Namco did not reveal the dates for DRAGON BALL FighterZ’s closed beta phase, though it did claim that it will feature nine playable characters.
Here is hoping that the online code for both Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 and DRAGON BALL FighterZ won’t be busted on the PC due to the lack of a PC beta testing!
