Pro Evolution Soccer “steals” Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus from FIFA 20
If last year the Japanese developer Konami was made exclusively with the Boca Juniors license for its Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, this year it has struck again by reaching an agreement with the Calcium champion, Juventus, according to which his team may only be available to users of PES 2020. Thus, those who choose to buy the Electronic Arts title FIFA 20, they will not be able to control the transalpine group. One of the most important in European football.
According to the signed agreement, neither the shield nor the uniform, nor the name Juventus may appear in any title other than Konami’s. This implies that the Italian team may be eligible for FIFA, but will not have their official name or their kits.
For its part, Electronic arts has reported through a statement that, although it will not have the Juventus license, it will create a team to replace it in the game. Its name, as they have informed, will be Piedmont Calcio, and in which all the bianconeros players will be found; from the world star Cristiano Ronaldo (which is the cover of FIFA 19), until Dybala or Drunkard.
It should be remembered that EA already lost the license of Boca Juniors, so he had to create a dummy set called Buenos Aires in which the squad of the Argentine team appears.
It should be remembered that lack of licenses It has been quite a headache for Konami in the last few years. The developer, which for a long time has been more focused on the PES franchise than in the rest of its historical sagas, is forced to compete against FIFA without having much of the image rights of the most cutting-edge clubs. Something that, although it does not affect the gameplay of the title, it does represent an important disadvantage for the consumer, who usually values that their favorite outfit looks as similar as possible to how it does in reality.
