Since the series changed from International Superstar Soccer in 2001, we have known it by PES, Pro Evolution Soccer or Pro Evo, but that will be the case no more.
The series became famous for having fantastic gameplay, as well as having some quirky but memorable flaws, such as unlicensed teams. Konami has gone for a complete rebrand this year, calling their new game eFootball.
Two years ago the series tried something similar, changing the name to eFootball PES 2020, as it made a push towards competitive eSports. However, it was simply a change of name, with the same game. This time though, there is a clear move away from the Pro Evolution Soccer brand, and for many lifelong fans it will mark the end of their time with the series.
It is the right time for the series to make a bold statement, having lost further ground to EA Sports in recent years, but is a complete break away from the famous brand what is needed?
