EA Sports PGA Tour confirmed to arrive in 2021

Over the last month or so, we've seen teases around EA Sports' returning golf franchise PGA Tour.

Despite a game announcement and confirmation that all four majors will be on the game, we still had no idea when the game was arriving.

Well, thanks to an EA earnings call - we know it's coming in 2021.

EA Sports PGA Tour Release Window

The EA earnings call states: "All of our new EA Sports games in FY '22 are designed for next-gen console platforms including FIFA, Madden, NHL and EA Sports PGA TOUR, our return to golf that is set for Q4 of this year."

Yep, that's right - EA Sports PGA Tour will arrive between October-December in 2021.

Exactly when is difficult to say, but given the Ryder Cup takes place at the end of September this year - perhaps we could see the golf title as early as Friday, 1 October 2021.


What we know so far

There isn't a huge amount to go on thus far, other than the licenced tournaments.

All four majors - The Masters, The Open, The US Open and the PGA Championship will be on the game, as well as a host of other PGA licenced tournaments.

The cover of the game may also have been revealed - containing headline licence The Masters at Augusta National.

No golfers have yet been confirmed for the game - but we do know a name that WON'T be on the EA title - the GOAT that is Tiger Woods.

The 15-time major winner has signed an exclusive deal with rivals 2K - but it remains to be seen what the future of the PGA Tour 2K franchise is.

In his place, we expect another high calibre golfer like Rory McIlory, Dustin Johnson or Jordan Spieth to be on the game.
