The Patch Aiming to Fix Konami’s eFootball Has Been Delayed

After eFootball’s calamitous launch, Konami promised a patch, 0.9.1 to repair most of the reported points. Unfortunately, that repair has now been delayed to early November.

Originally scheduled for October 28, Konami has now introduced on Twitter that fixes will not arrive till an unspecified date in early November.

The tweet reads: “We would love to inform all customers that we’ve determined to delay the discharge of model 0.9.1 to early November. We sincerely apologise for the delay and the inconvenience precipitated. Our hope is that the extra time taken will permit us to make sure the expertise is improved for all of our customers.

“We will announce the date and particulars of the fixes as quickly as they’re confirmed. In the meantime, we’ll proceed to work on enhancing the sport and look ahead to working with you on eFootball 2022.”

The launch model of eFootball, which Konami had billed as primarily a demo of the sport to come, launched with a variety of issues, including glitches, poor AI, and some wildly inaccurate player models. Our assessment in progress stated that “eFootball has quite a lot of work left to do on the pitch to make folks really need to play it within the first place,” giving it a provisional score of 3/10.

eFootball is a full rebrand of the long-running Pro Evolution Soccer sequence, dropping annual paid releases for a free-to-play structure. It’s not been a promising begin to that new period.
