Konami continues an aggressive push for prestige club branding. After securing a licensing deal with Manchester United, eFootball PES 2020 will now feature Juventus — exclusively. FIFA 20 will have to make do with a fake substitute.
In a statement, EA confirmed that Juventus would not appear in FIFA 20 and would be replaced by imaginary team Piemonte Calcio, who would take an equivalent position with similar chemistries. Manchester United will still be in FIFA — Konami just have a standard licensing deal with them for PES.
eFootball PES 2020 is getting a demo featuring 14 teams — presumably including Juventus — at the end of this month. The full game releases on September 10th.
