The next-gen PES game will be using Unreal Engine instead of the FOX Engine

Konami has revealed the first details for its next-gen PES game. Moreover, the publisher has released a new in-engine video which shows us a glimpse at the graphics of this upcoming Pro Evolution Soccer game.

As Konami noted, this new PES game will be using Unreal Engine instead of the FOX Engine. This engine switch will provide improvements to all areas of the game. Players can expect more realistic player models and animations, enhanced physics, photorealistic visuals, and much much more.

Konami has also confirmed the eFootball PES 2021 Season Update we reported last week.

“The sheer scale of everything we are aiming to achieve for our next gen debut has made it necessary to pare back our efforts in other areas of development. As a result, we have made the decision to launch this year’s PES as a streamlined offering in the form of a “season update”.

That being said, we are still extremely confident that this year’s game offers fans more than enough thrills to tide them over until our next gen title is ready for launch.”

Konami is currently aiming to begin testing its next gen title sometime in mid-2021. The company also plans to release the game later in the same year.

It’s really crucial to note here that Konami has not clarified the platforms for which this next-gen PES game will come out. Thus, we are not certain whether this 2021 next-gen PES game will come out on the PC.
