Latest - Official Teaser

Finally some news on the upcoming EA Sports PGA Tour game!

After seemingly months of radio silence, EA has dropped the official teaser trailer for their new title, in the middle of launch week for PGA Tour 2K23!

The Majors are shown off in the trailer, and this is a less-than-subtle brag that EA has secured golf's most coveted prizes for its game.

With world-famous courses available in the game, the competition really is fierce in the golf-gaming space.

Release Date

The release of EA's upcoming golf title was due to be in Spring 2022 but was been delayed indefinitely.

The official Twitter page read:

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

An official date is yet to be announced, but we do know that fans will have to wait until Spring 2023 to get in the game.

Cover Star

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 confirmed, although Jordan Spieth features prominently in the first official teaser.

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.

Trailer

We've had the announcement, and now a teaser, so fingers crossed a full trailer is on the way soon.

We will update this page as soon as we get a sniff of one, with perhaps an early peak coming any time from May.

AMAZING AMATEURS - You will be able to enjoy the amateur scene

This is an event that brings together the world’s finest pros with the best amateurs on the scene, as they test their skills and compete for the prestige that winning the event brings.

The U.S. Open is America’s championship – the toughest major in golf, played on America’s greatest courses including Torrey Pines, host of the 2021 U.S. Open Championship and The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, host of the 2022 U.S. Open.

Platforms

EA announced EA Sports PGA Tour as a "new next-gen golf video game, currently in development".

So, this pretty much 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.

FAQs confirm Career Mode

Will EA Sports PGA Tour have a Career Mode? Yes, it will!
