eFootball 2022: Konami Offer Refunds And Delay Further Updates Until 2022

eFootball 2022 will not be releasing further updates until Spring 2022.

The developers of eFootball 2022 have announced that they will not be releasing further updates until 2022 and will be offering refunds to players that purchased pre-orders.

Konami have been under the proverbial magnifying glass ever since their revamped free-to-play version of their successful Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) series that was launched at the end of September.

Large scale criticism has been handed out due to an array of bugs, glitches and in-game crashes led to some woeful review scores on Metacritic.

While Konami have apologised on multiple occasions for the mess that has been eFootball 2022 so far, they have come out again and said sorry once more, despite the launch of their first in-game update.

eFootball 2022 Controversy

The Japanese gaming giants previously stated that update 1.0.0 would be released on 11th November as they aimed to quickly iron out the creases that have risen to the service since eFootball 2022's release.

However, they have admitted they have been unable to meet that deadline. Not only that, but those players that pre-purchased the Premium Player Pack have automatically been refunded as they will not be able to utilise this until the next update is released. 

Via eFootball's official Twitter account, they said: "We would like to inform our players that the version 1.0.0 update scheduled for 11th November 2021 has been postponed until Spring 2022. Also, we are announcing the cancellation and automatic refunds of eFootball 2022 Premium Player Pack pre-orders, which included items that can only be used in-game after the version 1.0.0. update.

"We are working as hard as possible to deliver an experience that our players expect and deserve by Spring 2022.

"We apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your continued patience."

Things are going from bad to worse for Konami and could not possibly have imagined the launch to be worse than it has been.

PES was the only competitor for EA Sports' FIFA series for many years, but now it appears they have the sector to themselves more than ever.
