Konami has announced a September release date for the newest installment of its soccer franchise, Pro Evolution Soccer 2017, across all platforms.

The title – which won our award for Sports Game of E3 2016 – is out in North America on September 13, and will hit the U.K. two days later.

PES 2017 retails for $59.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and $39.99 on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Our Take
The release date itself isn't big news for the franchise, but it's whether all the summer transfers will be in the game. Thankfully, Konami says it has resolved the technical issues that prevented the game from being updated until long after the initial release, and the developer is promising a day-one roster update as well as weekly updates (online and off).
