EA Sports Ends Relationship With Tiger Woods; First Next-Gen PGA Tour Screenshot

Posted October 28th, 2013 at 2:15 pm


EA Sports today announced that their relationship with Tiger Woods is coming to an end. The next golf game from the company, scheduled for 2015 on the Xbox One and PS4, will not carry his name or have him involved in the marketing of the product.

Accompanying that big news is the first next-gen screenshot from what may simply be called EA Sports PGA Tour 16. Check it out in full resolution here. No further details on the game or move away from Woods has been provided.

Earlier this year EA decided to take a year off from the series in an attempt to debut in a strong fashion on next-gen. Ever since the scandal with Woods broke late 2009 signs of a move apart for both parties have been numerous and it’s somewhat surprising it took this long. Sales were dramatically impacted and his slipping significance in the golf world became a factor.
