The time has come for us to cherish that the latest PES 2019 has been released on consoles and PC, but PES 2019 Mobile has no news published by Konami until now. PES 2019 has been released for our fellows who play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC by purchasing on retail sites for PS4 and Xbox One and by purchasing on Steam for PC. Sadly, for now, there is no PES 2019 available on either Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store. Why is Konami keeping us in the dark on this, and when will the actual release of the mobile game be published to the public? Will it be the end of PES in the mobile platform?
The PES series on mobile
If we wonder about the history of the game, every seasoned and older gamer should know that PES was initially released in 1996 under the name Winning Eleven, on PlayStation One. Its current name, which is Pro Evolution Soccer, was taken from the European and US version of the game. Now, PES has become one of the most popular soccer games in the world, fiercely competing with EA Sports’ FIFA to be the best. PES 2019 is available for download for PS4, Xbox One, and Steam for PC.
Konami also markets PES for mobile gaming, with the first PES lands on iOS in 2009 as Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 and it requires a purchase in order to download and play it. However, Konami took a break from mobile gaming market by not releasing games for Android and iPhone from 2012 until 2015. PES was not released on mobile from 2012 until 2015, which means, there were no PES 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 for mobile. The mobile version of the game was resurrected in 2016, by the release of PES 2017 and 2018 which were released as free games, as a strategy for Konami to gain more consumers and obtained profit from In-App Purchases put in the respective games, unlike the first PES released for mobile. Sadly, Konami has not made any publications regarding the PES 2019 mobile.
