EA Sports confirms return of PGA Tour games

EA Sports has announced that their PGA Tour series is set to return.

The last release in the series was in 2015, with Rory McIlroy as the cover star.

The newest title will be called EA SPORTS PGA Tour’, and will be the first golf game produced for next-generation consoles.

It will feature many of the world’s most famous courses. Fans will also be able to play as or against the world’s top players.

More details – including a release date – are set to be revealed in the coming months.

A section of the announcement, via the official PGA Tour website, read: “The game will be built on the EA Frostbite engine and leveraging next-gen technology, promises stunning fidelity, breathtaking immersive environments, and approachable, dynamic gameplay.”

Cam Weber, EA Sports EVP and GM, told the official PGA Tour website: “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 most iconic PGA TOUR courses and win the FedEx Cup.”

The news will leave many golf fans reminicising about the popular Tiger Woods PGA Tour games. They were released every year by EA between 1998 and 2013.

For much of that time, Woods was ranked as the number one golfer in the world.

He spent over 500 weeks as number one between 1999 and 2010, having turned professional in 1996.

Woods agreed to an “exclusive, long-term partnership” with rival publisher 2K Sports last month to feature in their series.

2K released two golf games solely under the ‘Golf Club’ banner before acquiring a PGA Tour license in 2018.
