Players waiting on the full launch of Konami’s eFootball are going to have to wait a good bit longer. Today, the company announced that the version 1.0.0 update scheduled to release on November 11 has been pushed back until sometime in Spring of 2022. They’ve also announced that they’re canceling and automatically refunding the 2022 Premium Player Pack pre-orders. The pack contains items only usable once the 1.0.0 update is out.
This delay also means that mobile device support has been pushed back as well.
The reason for the delay, according to a post on Konami’s site, is that they’ve realized they need more time to “deliver the product in the quality that will meet the expectations of [their] users”. This includes not only the actual game launch and mobile support, but also the addition of a new mode that allows players to play with an original team.
In the meantime, the company is releasing an update (v0.9.1) to fix bugs across all platforms. The update is already available, as are the patch notes. Even if you don’t play the game, you might want to give them a look-over, particularly if you’re feeling a bit down. It’s kind of a wild ride and I’m not sure how the game made it to near launch with this many graphical issues staring Konami in the face. This isn’t that one falling cow at the crossroads kind of thing. If the notes are to be believed, everything’s clipping, individual items freeze in playback, menus refuse to open after so long in a match, characters can’t seem to stay in place, and advertisement boards are showing “erroneous” images.
So…yeah, probably a good thing the game was delayed.
