The traditional Italian club AS Roma will now be exclusively represented in eFootball PES 2021. FIFA 21 will only get a fantasy name.
In the past, fantasy teams only existed in Pro Evolution Soccer, but times are changing. The wolves from AS Roma are exclusively playable in eFootball PES 2021 in the coming season. Konami secured the license and FIFA will not have AS Roma in this year's iteration.
AS Roma Joins eFootball PES 2021
After Juventus FC, AS Roma is the second club to give EA Sports' FIFA the cold shoulder. In FIFA 21 Roma FC will have fantasy names, jerseys and logos. The real AS Roma is only available in eFootball PES 2021, as the club and Konami have now revealed.
eFootball PES 2021 will be released as a season update on September 15, FIFA 21 will take about one month longer and will have its release day on October 6th.
This could make AS Roma a hot candidate for a club edition in the next-gen PES 2022, which is scheduled for release next year and features a new graphics engine. Teams such as FC Bayern Munich or Juventus FC will already be given an exclusive special edition this year, complete with their own content.
So... Juve and Roma are exclusive in eFootball PES 2021, while AC Milan and Inter Milan will be exclusive in FIFA 21.
