Swing and a miss
Electronic Arts has announced that it is shifting the launch date of its incoming simulator EA Sports PGA Tour. Oddly, the publisher did not offer a new release date, nor call the shift a “delay,” but one would assume that the premier golf title has been pushed backward, and will no longer be meeting its initial spring 2022 release window.
“Hey golf fans, we wanted to let you know that we are shifting the launch date of EA Sports PGA Tour,” said EA on Twitter. “We’re excited to bring championship golf to you and will be providing more information on our launch plans in the coming months.”
Currently in development at Electronic Arts’ Tiburon studio, EA Sports PGA Tour represents EA’s first use of the PGA license since 2015, with the new simulator utilizing the company’s Frostbite engine to provide a next-gen golfing experience like none other that has come before. EA hopes to provide incredible realism alongside stunning photo-realistic visuals to offer fans the best title in the PGA Golf franchise’s decades-long history. While understandably niche, the golf simulator has always proved successful, and EA Sports will no doubt wish to see their new title hit the links soon.
EA Sports PGA Tour is currently in development for PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
