EA Sports has revealed the future of their hit Tiger Woods PGA Tour games and surprise surprise, they are cutting Tiger Woods from the title. In a mutually agreed upon move between both EA and Tiger Woods, the parties have amicably called an end to their relationship. EA will be working hand in hand with the PGA Tour to add a host of new features and the game concept images they have shown seem to really show off the new engine they are working with.
Tiger Woods has of course had a rocky few years after it was found that he was having multiple affairs outside of marriage. His career seemed to be on the rebound, but he hasn’t won a major in 5 years, which could be a considering factor in the split. The Tiger Woods brand name isn’t what it used to be and with the new console generations and newer faces at EA, this is as good a chance as any to rebuild the brand without him.
EA has made this statement in regards to the matter:
“EA SPORTS and Tiger Woods have also made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger’s named PGA TOUR golf game. We’ve always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavors.”
