UEFA EURO 2020 update delayed for PES 2020
As the real event is postponed, so is the upcoming DLC
Konami has confirmed that the upcoming UEFA EURO 2020 downloadable content (DLC) for eFootball PES 2020 has been delayed until further notice.
With the latest state of emergency declared in Japan, the original April 30 release date for the DLC is no longer possible.
Further, the delay is due to the real tournemant itself also being rescheudled. The tournament, to be held in 12 cities in 12 UEFA countries, was originally scheduled to take place from 12 June to 12 July 2020. On 17 March 2020, UEFA announced that the tournament would be delayed by a year due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Europe, and proposed it take place from 11 June to 11 July 2021.
Alongside the planned DLC, KONAMI and UEFA have confirmed that the UEFA eEURO 2020 esports tournament will continue, with the final taking place online on May 23 - 24. The finalists had been scheduled to gather in London in July, but the tournament will now take place virtually.
