Electronic Arts did not give a reason for the delay. It was originally slated for release in November 2022.
In 1998, EA began releasing its golf games with the endorsement of Tiger Woods. Woods was reportedly paid between $6 million and $7 million per year by EA.
This latest game was announced in March 2021. It marked a one-year hiatus from EA. There are some pretty neat features that gamers will appreciate.
So far we know it will include the Masters, PGA Championship, US Open, The Open, and the FedEx Cup Qualifiers. The game will also feature the LPGA Tour.
EA hasn’t confirmed which platforms its next game will appear on, but it will likely target current consoles and/or PCs.
Elsewhere, there are a number of new courses for players to play.

They have already teased Augusta National, The Old Course at St Andrews Links, The Country Club at Brookline and Southern Hills Country Club.
EA Sports has been the dominant force in sports gaming for decades. They have produced popular titles like Madden, FIFA and NHL every year.
EA memorably exited the golf gaming scene following the release of Rory McIlroy’s PGA Tour in 2015.
McIlroy, then in his mid-twenties and looking like the hottest property since Woods, appeared to be the leader of the game.
Some reviewers felt that the game’s release was unfinished and they never followed up on a sequel.
When it arrives, the game will be available on “next-gen platforms.”
