EA has announced a new EA Sports PGA Tour is in development for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
EA last produced a golf game back in 2015 with Rory McIlroy PGA Tour for PS4 and Xbox One.
The new EA Sports PGA Tour is being developed by EA Tiburon who also made the Rory McIlroy PGA Tour game and the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series before it.
EA Sports PGA Tour will include all of the Tour’s branding, The Players Championship, FedExCup Playoffs and Pebble Beach Golf links and marks the beginning of a “new, long-term deal” with the PGA Tour.
The game is being built using the company’s Frostbite engine.
“We can’t wait to give fans the opportunity to compete on some of the most iconic PGA tour courses, and win the FedEx Cup,” Cam Weber, EA Sports’ general manager, said in a statement.
A launch date will be announced in the coming months. No word on what other platforms it may come to.
The game will give a competitor to 2K Sports and its PGA Tour 2K series. 2K got into the golfing business by publishing The Golf Club 2019 which had PGA Tour licensing. Last year, 2K released PGA Tour 2K21 and have just recently purchased the developer of The Golf Club/PGA Tour 2K, HB Studios. 2K has inked an exclusive deal with Tiger Woods to be in the next PGA Tour 2K/
