While publisher Electronic Arts continues to helm the sports simulation market with Madden NFL, NHL, and FIFA, the company has been dormant on its releases for Professional Golfers Association titles. Namely the last release arrived back in 2015 with Rory Mcllroy PGA Tour. However, there has yet to be a follow-up in more than half a decade now. Despite the absence in prominent golf releases, 2K is starting to occupy that space.

In that, 2K established the 2K Golf Club which more recently received a name change – PGA Tour 2K. The latest installment, PGA Tour 2K21, arrived back in August last year with Justin Thomas as the cover athlete for the inaugural release of the game. It is presumed that 2K similar with its NBA 2K series will continue with annual releases for the series.

Now in a new press release from Electronic Arts on Monday, the publisher will be returning to PGA Tour in the coming future. It was not too long ago that the firm shared its return to college football also, so Electronic Arts sure is proving to be investing big into EA Sports.

EA Sports and the PGA Tour have created some of the most memorable golf video game experiences together, and we couldn’t be more excited to expand our sports portfolio with a new golf title on next-gen hardware. Our team of passionate golf fans is meticulously recreating the world’s top courses such as Pebble Beach, and we can’t wait to give fans the opportunity to compete on some of the most iconic PGA Tour courses and win the FedExCup.

Most noted about the announcement in contrast to 2K’s PGA Tour series is that the publisher most recently scored a deal with Tiger Woods to create more games with the returning professional golfer as the cover athlete. Previously, Woods received his own line of video games under the Electronic Sports banner.

As competition between Electronic Arts and 2K grows, it is also apparent with the National Football League as well. In that, 2K arranged an agreement with the NFL to create new games in the coming future. The firm has been on hiatus since its last release back in 2007.
