Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 developer Konami has confirmed that the sports sim is being created in conjunction with a new UK studio.

It follows confirmation that PES 2015 is coming to PS4. There’s currently no word on an Xbox One release.

Now, speaking with MCV, Konami European executive Shinji Hirano said of the project, “I can’t say certain things about PES 2015, but we are ready to make a comeback.

“I cannot give details on exactly what we are doing with the UK studio, but they are working on the next project and looking at the needs of the European people. It’s about globalising the franchise, so it is not just being developed by Japanese people.

“We know what’s been going wrong with PES, we are working on that. The next version is totally changed. 2014 is a transitional year for the franchise, so expect big things.”
