The PES Team has apologised for the release of its first PES 2016 Data Pack which promised to bring all team rosters up to date with the latest player transfers, yet proved to be incomplete.
This came after players were left waiting over a month after the game shipped with out of date team rosters.
"There has been an issue with the latest Data Pack released October 29th, and we wanted to reach out to our fans to let you know just how we're dealing with this current situation," reads a statement from Konami's PES Team given to PES Fan.
"Currently the roster update for offline play which impacts Master League, competitions and edit mode is not complete, missing the final few days of transfers. The online modes, such as ranked matches, myClub and exhibition mode using Live Updates are up to date, as they were from October 2nd - and they remain unaffected."
PES Team says that updating the roster is a priority, but "will take some weeks unfortunately".
The statement adds: "We had planned a second Data Pack for end of November which was set to include a new stadium for PS4 and Xbox One, the Maracana. However, we will not release this Data Pack without including a fix for the offline roster issue."
Whilst the wait will be frustrating to players, the PES Team promises to throw in a host of other content to help ease the pain.
"The extra time needed will also be used to add more content into the game that wasn't planned at this stage, such as new kits and boots, as well as any other content the time allows. We'll provide a list of extra content once set," explains the statement. "We appreciate this doesn't suddenly make this situation better, but we do want to show desire to make good on the situation for the fans."
PES Team concluded: "We assure everyone that we have learnt from this situation, and confirm designs to improve situations like these are currently being considered for future products.
"Thanks for your continued support, and sorry once again."
