As a result of the postponement of the UEFA EURO 2020™ tournament and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has today announced 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.

KONAMI has also made the decision to cancel plans to release a physical version of eFootball PES 2020 with a UEFA EURO 2020™ cover. However, anyone who currently owns or is looking to purchase eFootball PES 2020 will still be able to enjoy the free update for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC Steam when it is released through an upcoming Data Pack.

Alongside the planned DLC, KONAMI and UEFA have confirmed that the UEFA eEURO 2020 esports tournament, played exclusively on eFootball PES 2020, will continue this year, 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.
