Bad news for users who are continuing to play Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 (PES 2014), as Konami Digital Entertainment has announced that they will stop the online service on November 17, resulting in closing of servers to play online, requiring well make the jump to the future PES 2016 which will be released on September 16.

“Konami thanks everyone who has taken part in PES 2014’s many online leagues and competitions. The PES online community is vital to the development process and we are grateful for the constant support shown for the PES series.”
It is certainly a negative for the company, leaving thousands of users without online gaming and for a game that is about to turn two years old, and when even today you can find official servers of Quake 2, a game released in 1997.
Anyone here still playing PES 2014? How do you feel about the shutdown—are you burned, or are you ready to move on to the new hotness? That being Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, of course, which as Konami said will be out on September 16.
