EA SPORTS REVIVES ‘PGA TOUR’ FRANCHISE
EA Sports has announced the return of its PGA Tour golf simulation franchise with EA Sports PGA Tour.
The new game will be developed by Madden and NBA Live studio EA Tiburon. It will include real-world PGA events including The Players Championship, FedEx Cup Playoffs and more. Players will also be able to build their “virtual career and experience the sights, sounds, and thrills of the PGA Tour.”
“EA Sports and the PGA Tour have created some of the most memorable golf video game experiences together, and we couldn’t be more excited to expand our sports portfolio with a new golf title on next-gen hardware,” Cam Weber, executive vp and general manager of EA Sports, said. “Our team of passionate golf fans is meticulously recreating the world’s top courses such as Pebble Beach, and we can’t wait to give fans the opportunity to compete on some of the most iconic PGA Tour courses and win the FedExCup.”
EA Sports PGA Tour is the first golf game from the publisher since Rory Mcilroy PGA Tour in 2014. It will also be the first EA golf game not to feature a pro golfer in its title since PGA Tour ‘98 in 1997.
The game currently has no set release date, but the official release mentions that more news on the game will be announced “in the coming months”.
