The EA Sports PGA Tour has been postponed from 2022 and will now kick off in the spring of 2023.
EA’s big return to the golf video game never had an official release date and has been pushed out of the window Spring 2022 previous November. The press release announcing the delay did not state the reason for the change of plans.
First announced in March 2021, the EA Sports PGA Tour is the publisher’s first golf game after a long hiatus. So far, we know that it will feature a Masters Tournament (for which the game has an exclusive partnership), a PGA Championship, a US Open Championship, and an Open Championship. It also has a career mode that includes a Player Championship and a FedExCup Qualifier. The game will also include Women’s Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and The Amundi Evian Championship. The EA Sports PGA Tour is being developed using EA Tiburon’s Frostbite Engine.
EA has yet to confirm PGA Tour platforms will appear, but one can imagine it will target current consoles and/or PCs. In the meantime, check out this opinion piece on why EAs should abandon the annual release model for its sports games.
