share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

When will PGA Tour 2K22 be released? Well, so far it looks like we are heading for a 2K23 title instead!

Rumours surrounding who will be the Cover Athlete of the new game have been circulating ever since Tiger Woods was announced to be joining the franchise.

So, check out who is likely to feature on the cover of PGA Tour 2K22 along with everything you need to know about the upcoming release here.


Latest - LIV Golf

The biggest talking point in golf could become a major player in the 2K and EA rivalry as LIV Golf continues to divide fans and players alike.

EA has secured the majors, while 2K has the PGA Tour.

2K's partnership with the PGA Tour will surely put any chance of a deal with LIV Golf to bed, leaving EA free to swoop in.

The multi-million dollar competition aims to revolutionise golf, and we could see it arrive on consoles in 2023.

Release Date

There has been no news on PGA Tour 2K22 following the signing of Tiger Woods.

There is a chance the GOAT could just be arriving in PGA Tour 2K21, but again it would be a waste of opportunity from 2K.

LOOKING BACK - PGA Tour 2K21 was released on 21 August 2020

An official release date for PGA Tour 2K22 is still unknown, with absolutely no leaks, reveals, or announcements on the potential game released as of yet.

It is now getting to the stage where any release would surely be 2K23, putting them in direct competition with EA.



We do not yet have confirmation of the platforms that the game will be released on, but we've got a pretty good idea.

PGA Tour 2K21 was released on PS4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia, and we'd expect very much the same this year.

TAKE YOUR PICK - PGA Tour 2K21 arrived on all the expected consoles

Of course, the game was released before PS5 and Xbox Series X|S arrives, so perhaps some Next Gen enhancements are in the pipeline this time around.



The first teaser for PGA Tour 2K21 arrived in May - with the announcement trailer following also arriving that month.

So, stay tuned to 2K's social channels around the same time this year.

We’ll be posting all the latest PGA Tour 2K22 trailers here as and when they are released to the public.


Who will be the Cover Star?

The list of contenders for the PGA Tour 2K22 Cover Athlete will be very short this year.

Acquiring the signature of Tiger Woods very much points towards the 15-time major winner to fronting up this year's game.

Justin Thomas was the cover star for PGA Tour 2K21, winning The Players Championship and the WGC - FedEx St. Jude Invitational after the game's release.

However, as stated previously, the favourite for this year's Cover Star is the legend, Tiger Woods.


2K21 dev hopeful on future of the franchise

We may not see PGA Tour 2K22, but expect the franchise to continue - whether it be more content on 2K21 or future titles in the series.

Plus, Tiger Woods is working with developers - so expect to see that collaboration come to light somewhere along the line.

Check out our exclusive interview with Josh Muise, Creative Director at HB Studios right here.

Pro Golfers

PGA Tour 2K21 saw a load of pro golfers arrive, but the only irritating factor was that you could only play against the pros, as opposed to controlling them.

We hope that changes this year, with the prospect of playing as Tiger too good to turn down!

PGA Tour 2K21 Roster

  • Justin Thomas
  • Cameron Champ
  • Bryson DeChambeau
  • Matt Kuchar
  • Kevin Kisner
  • Gary Woodland
  • Billy Horschel
  • Ian Poulter
  • Tony Finau
  • Jim Furyk
  • Sergio Garcia
  • Patrick Cantlay

The major missing factor from last year was no women from the LPGA - something 2K will likely address next time around.

STAND AND DELIVER - Ian Poulter flies the British flag in PGA Tour 2K21

Nelly Korda, Daniel Kang and Brooke Henderson would be popular additions from North America, with the best two of the best players in the world - Jin Young Ko and Sei Young Kim hailing from South Korea.

The addition of legends such as Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Seve Ballesteros would also be immensely popular with the community.


Courses & Tournaments

The beauty of having the PGA Tour licencing allows 2K to have a whole catalogue of courses and tournaments to play at.

PGA Tour 2K21 Courses & Tournaments

15 courses were available at launch on PGA Tour 2K21, with a further three being added to the game in the following months.

  • TPC Sawgrass - THE PLAYERS Championship
  • TPC Deere Run - John Deere Classic
  • TPC Summerlin - Shriners Hospitals for Children Open
  • TPC Scottsdale - Waste Management Phoenix Open
  • Atlantic Beach Country Club
  • TPC Twin Cities - 3M Open
  • Riviera Country Club - Genesis Invitational
  • TPC San Antonio - Valero Texas Open
  • TPC River Highlands - Travelers Championship
  • East Lake Golf Club - TOUR Championship
  • Quail Hollow Club - Wells Fargo Championship
  • Copperhead - Valspar Championship
  • TPC Southwind - WGC – FedEx St. Jude Invitational
  • TPC Louisiana - Zurich Classic
  • AP Bay Hill Club - Arnold Palmer Invitational
  • Detroit Golf Club - Rocket Mortgage Classic

18 courses is plenty, but we want more!

This will be difficult following EA's deal with the PGA Tour and exclusive rights to all four Majors.

BESPOKE - Not only did last year's game have a range of venues, but also featured a course creator

The Ryder Cup remains the one remaining huge tournament, and could at least sway European players to 2K.


Competition delayed

Well, this is disappointing.

After no news for a considerable length of time, EA has confirmed that EA Sports PGA Tour will be released in Spring 2023.

This is a year delay on the previous release date, so this game better be epic when it eventually hits the shelves!

The delay does leave a 'gimme' for 2K Games to secure a monopoly on golf games in 2022.
