EA Sports is no longer focussed on enhancing the gameplay of its FIFA series, instead looking at adding new features, PES team leader Jon Murphy has suggested to OPM.
"We always focused on gameplay and that's what we want to get back to," said Murphy.
He added: "Maybe EA thinks they've gone far enough with gameplay and they've got other things to do – maybe they want to attract a different kind of audience with different features. But I've always thought it's right that we should be concentrating really hard on the way you play a game against someone else, and that unique PES feeling, which is all about gameplay."
Some of the gameplay additions to PES 2013 include total freedom over ball control, dynamic first touch, and full manual shooting.
