RELEASE DATE REVEAL: EA confirm that PG Tour will arrive in 2022

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.

Platforms

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.

Cover Star

We may have already seen the cover for EA Sports PGA Tour - with the Masters Tournament featuring.

IT'S IN THE GAME - The biggest golf tournament in the world features

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.

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:

With almost all the big tournaments signed on the only biggie remaining is the Ryder Cup - it has featured in the series before and we would love to see the Europe vs USA battle feature this year
