The official release of EA Sports' PGA Tour Game is getting closer and closer!
Read on to find out all the latest on the release date of the upcoming golfing game.
Latest - EA Sports PGA Tour will feature the four Majors
EA has announced that EA Sports PGA Tour for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will have the exclusive rights to the four Major Championships: the Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, U.S. Open Championship, and The Open Championship.
This announcement includes the 2021 and 2022 PGA Championship, which will be held at Kiawah Island Golf Resort and Southern Hills Country Club respectively.
That’s part of a partnership with PGA of America to virtually recreate the PGA Championship, letting you can play to with the historic Wanamaker Trophy and take in Champion’s Ceremony, and play as and against past PGA Champions.
The EA Sports PGA Tour Twitter account has just revealed when the game will be released.
As you can see above, EA has replied to their own tweet saying 'Coming 2022' - confirmation that PGA Tour will be released in 2022.
Despite not giving an exact date or month, this is the first instance where EA has stated a rough release time for the game.
That initial release kicked off with: "EA announced EA SPORTS PGA TOUR, a new next-gen golf video game, currently in development."
That essentially confirms the game for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, and it would be very surprising for the title to not arrive on PS4 and Xbox One.
It remains to be seen whether the title will arrive on PC, Nintendo Switch and Stadia.
We may have already seen the cover for EA Sports PGA Tour - with the Masters Tournament featuring.
Whether a current or legendary golfer will also appear remains to be seen.
One person we know it won't be is Tiger Woods who has secured an exclusive deal with 2K Sports.
Sticking with the Ryder Cup theme, we could see legends like Jack Nicklaus or Seve Ballesteros, with EA often keen on legendary editions for its sports titles.
Out of current pros, Rory McIlory will be the favourite - picking up from where he left off in 2015.
Dustin Johnson is the current world number 1, with Jon Rahm and PGA Tour 2K21 cover star Justin Thomas other contenders.
We've had the announcement, a potential cover - perhaps a trailer, or at least a teaser is next?
We will update this page as soon as we get a sniff of one, with perhaps an early peak coming any time from May.
For comparison, here's last year's PGA Tour 2K21 trailer:
