EA Sports PGA Tour franchise being resurrected

2K has some competition...

EA Sports PGA Tour will be resurrected by the publisher, described as a “new next-gen golf video game.”

The publisher will work with the PGA to include Tour icons like The Players Championship, FedExCup Playoffs and more, a press release reads.

The title will also use EA’s Frostbite engine with the promise of “stunning fidelity, breathtaking immersive environments, and approachable, dynamic gameplay.”

“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,” said EA Sports’ Cam Weber. “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 first released PGA Tour Golf on PC, Mac, Genesis, SNES and Game Gear way back from 1990. The last title in the franchise was 2015’s Rory McIlroy PGA Tour on PS4 and Xbox One. 2014’s release was the last to heavily feature Tiger Woods, who has recently signed an exclusive, long-term deal with 2K and HB Studios for its own PGA Tour 2K franchise.
