In the greater landscape of professional golf titles, there has not been a great precedent for more games over the past decade. While the 2000s is where this subgenre of games shined, the same cannot be said for the 2010s. For Electronic Arts, the firm shipped Rory McElroy PGA Tour in 2015, but follow-ups failed to pickup traction. Currently, a newly revamped EA PGA Tour is in development.
Over at 2K though, the publisher shipped Golf Club and the most recent PGA Tour 2K21 previously. “Despite a lack of content, excellent community tools help PGA Tour 2K21 provide a solid foundation to build off,” Rectify Gaming gave for our review then. Most interesting is that a sequel – PGA Tour 2K22 – never came to be. But, the firm alongside Tiger Woods did sign a new agreement for future projects in the past.
This week, 2K has announced PGA Tour 2K23 and World Golf Hall of Fame inductee Tiger Woods is the cover athlete for the new game. You can watch the announcement trailer in the video below:
“The Clubhouse Report covers a variety of PGA TOUR 2K23 topics including the new 3-click swing option, playable pros, licensed courses, MyPLAYERS, MyCAREER, Course Designer, and more. Additional Clubhouse Reports are planned for the future to offer additional insights into upcoming announcement topics. The trailer also offers a peek at pros, courses and MyPLAYERS in action,” the press release reveals.
This is not the only sport title coming out this fall from 2K. In that, Visual Concepts is cleaning up on its release for NBA 2K23 which release in September. The game features four cover athletes: Devin Brooker, Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi, and Michael Jordan. You can read the full report by heading here.
