You may recall that, a little while ago, EA Sports announced its return to golf games. More than that, the publisher would be bringing it back with the official PGA Tour licence. For fans of quiet clapping and divots, this was rather exciting news, but it seems like there will be a bit of a wait.

Initially planned to release in spring of 2022, EA has delayed the project with a short statement on social media:

"Hey golf fans, we wanted to let you know that we are shifting the launch date of EA SPORTS PGA TOUR," it reads. "We're excited to bring championship golf to you and will be providing more information on our launch plans in the coming months."

No new release window or date has been given as yet, but as it was meant to release early next year, we'd say the game won't make it out until the latter half of 2022. That's just speculation on our part, though — obviously we'll have to wait and see what EA says next on the matter.

The game is in development at EA Tiburon, the studio behind the Madden NFL series, and like most of the publisher's sports titles, will be created using the Frostbite engine. There's not much we know about the game itself yet, save for the fact it'll include LPGA tournaments, as well as the US Open and amateur events.
