Why doesn't Pro Evolution Soccer have licensed teams?

Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) has been an iconic video game for years, but one of its major drawbacks is the lack of officially licensed teams. The main reason for this is due to the cost of licensing teams and leagues, which is something Konami, the game's developer, has not been willing to invest in. In addition, the lack of licenses has also caused a lack of authenticity in the game, and has led to a decrease in sales. Despite this, PES still has a dedicated fanbase, and its lack of licenses has not stopped it from being a popular series.
