PES 2013 will release in October, according to a new advert for a Konami distributor.

The date was printed in Intent Media's Sourcebook alongside a February 2013 date for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

A release date for PES 2013 has never been confirmed by Konami beyond 'Autumn 2012'.

The October date puts PES on the back foot to football rival FIFA.

FIFA 13 is due to release across Europe on September 28, 2012.

A demo for PES 2013 released on Xbox Live Marketplace and PC yesterday. The demo offers players the chance to play as England, Germany, Italy and Portugal months before the game goes on sale.

Earlier this week, Konami announced that it would be opening a new PES Productions studio in London to help "reproduce European football culture at its best in their games."

The team will be developing "PES projects targeting high-end game consoles and PCs" alongside the Japanese studio.
