I have no wordsWomen's football is more popular than ever before, with the ongoing 2019 World Cup enthralling audiences across the globe. While EA added women's teams in a limited capacity back in FIFA 16, PES has so far eschewed the women's game entirely. Publisher Konami has now confirmed that stance will continue in PES 2020.
"I personally support the women's game and have been following the World Cup closely," the series' European brand manager, Lennart Bobzien, told GameSpot in a statement. "However we currently don't have any plans to integrate women into eFootball PES 2020."
EA's series holds the licensing rights to feature the FIFA World Cup competitions--for both men and women's teams--so it's unsurprising the tournament hasn't been featured in PES in an official capacity.
However, it's disappointing to see the women's game not represented at all in PES given the sport is now more popular than it has ever been.
