Peter Drury and Jim Beglin are set to provide English commentary. PES 2017 is rumored to have included a new technical innovation in the form of audio concatenation, the process by which individual units are linked to create a fluid, more "natural" sounding commentary.  Milton Leite and Mauricio Noreiga will provide Portuguese commentary. Jon Kabira and Tsuyoshi Kitazawa are expected to remain as commentators for the Japanese version.
