Unlike FIFA 14, this year's rival outing PES 2014 will not make it to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
European PES community manager Adam Bhatti confirmed on Twitter that this year's game would only arrive on PS3, Xbox 360 and, due to demand, PSP.
[We're] not in the business for high-res next-gen ports. We can't and shouldn't do that,” Bhatti stated.
In the past, people accused us of being lazy. We're adamant of not making the same mistakes, and making sure we create amazing football games. It's hardly amazing making the next-gen version prettier. We shouldn't have that mentality, and you shouldn't expect that. Aim higher,” he added.
