Announced a couple months ago, EA is bringing back its iconic PGA Tour game which will bring full PGA licensing including the PGA Championship and The Masters.
According to a press release from EA today, the title will not release until spring of next year.
The new game, releasing in Spring 2022, will be the exclusive home of all four of golf’s major championships: The Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, U.S. Open Championship and The Open Championship. Golf fans can also compete at the biggest PGA TOUR events, as they strive to build a legendary career.
Based on what has been shared to date, the game should be the premiere experience for golf fans when it launches.
EA SPORTS is partnering with the PGA of America to allow players to virtually experience the PGA Championship, and only in EA SPORTS PGA TOUR will players be able to immerse themselves in the fanfare of the major championship. They will be able to hoist the historic Wanamaker Trophy, revel in the Champion’s Ceremony, play as or against past PGA Champions and compete on brilliant virtual renderings of the 2021 PGA Championship host course at Kiawah Island; and the 2022 host course at Southern Hills Country Club.
The game will also include tutorials and coaching challenges, designed in collaboration with the PGA Education and Player Development Departments, that teach skills valuable not only in-game, but also in the real world.
We were hoping to see PGA Tour return this year. But given the on-going struggles of remote development and the scope of the game, we completely understand. We can’t wait to see what it offers next year.
