As announced a few months ago, this round ball simulation will run under Unreal Engine. But contrary to what one imagined, it is not only for the new generation of consoles that this transfer has been made. In fact, eFootball will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC as well as on PS4 and Xbox One … not to mention the iOS and Android versions which will be released shortly thereafter. What about the Switch? Nothing on the horizon.
