Konami has ruled out Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 for Switch. However, the company seems open to bringing the series over in the future.
Global product and brand manager Adam Bhatti told Eurogamer:
“One thing that I will say about the Switch is, we’re getting asked that quite a lot. The fact is, we’ve announced all the platforms that PES 2018 is coming to. But as I’ve been saying to a lot of people, we have a great relationship with Nintendo – we’ve obviously brought out Bomberman which has done fantastic for the Switch. So as a company it’s a platform that we’re looking at, for sure. So for PES it’s just – we never want to say no, we never want to close the door. Let’s see how it goes. Personally speaking, I love the machine. We think it’s definitely performed amazingly well. And we really hope that it continues to do very well.”
Pro Evolution Soccer 2018’s assistant producer Kei Masuda also said: “We always like to hear what the fans think as well, depending on the amount of reactions we get then we definitely would like to look into it.”
