EA Sports has been quietly overhauling its catalogue behind-the-scenes, with the announcement of titles like EA Sports PGA Tour and EA Sports College Football. Sadly, it doesn’t sound like we’ll be sampling the fruits of its labours for quite some time, as the publisher has confirmed that the former will now not tee off until Spring 2023.
You may recall that the title, originally due out in Spring 2022, was delayed indefinitely last November. Well, now it’s been confirmed that it’s still a year away.
“There are few things in sports that match the thrill of winning a major championship, and we’re excited to bring all four majors – the Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, US Open Championship, and The Open Championship – and a true next-gen championship golf experience to fans next year,” a statement from EA Sports bigwig Cam Weber said.
When it finally drops, this will be EA Sports’ first golf game since Rory McIlroy’s PGA Tour in 2015. Of course, the delay will be welcomed by 2K Sports, which released PGA Tour 2K21 a couple of years ago, and has since signed a long-term arrangement with Tiger Woods.
