Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 News: Konami Apologizes for Lack of Roster Updates, Announces Delays
Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 is still missing all of the latest soccer rosters, prompting the game's developer Konami to apologize. The company admitted it could be a while before all of the updates are complete.
Konami has officially issued an apology for not having the proper rosters for players who wish to play Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 offline, Venture Beat reports. The developer said they tried to fix the issue in a recent patch, but there were further issues that caused the rosters to remain incomplete.
"There has been an issue with the latest data pack released Oct. 29, and we wanted to reach out to our fans to let you know just how we're dealing with this current situation," Konami said in a statement obtained by PESFan. "The roster issue is a priority for us to correct ASAP but will take some weeks, unfortunately. We had planned a second data pack for end of November, which was set to include a new stadium for PS4 and Xbox One, the Maracana. However, we will not release this data pack without including a fix for the offline roster issue."
"Right now, we have removed the planned data pack from our schedule so we can implement the fix required. We will then go through the process to get it out as soon as possible. We'll update the fans on our official social channels as soon as we have information on this," the company added in the statement.
Konami will offer some in-game bonus content as a way to apologize to players. The content includes new kits and soccer cleats. The team admits that these additions do not make up for the improper rosters, but they want to do something nice for their loyal players.
The developer also wants to learn from the mistakes they have made, and are promising to work on making improvements in the future.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 is considered an excellent soccer game, but it has been known to lag behind competitors in gaining licenses for teams and players. Rival EA Sports' FIFA 16 has complete rosters.
