    Just ahead of EA Play on June 9, EA SPORTS has begun the news release and marketing campaign for Madden NFL 19 today by releasing the first game info, the Hall of Fame Cover, and release dates.

    Gracing the cover of the Hall of Fame Edition of the game will be Terrell Owens, a 2018 HOF inductee. Despite spending most of his career as a 49er, Owens will grace the HOF edition as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. The cover athlete for the standard edition will be announced at a later date.

    This year the game will release in early August. More specifically, August 2 for EA Access members, HOF Edition on August 7, and the Standard Edition on August 10. The move extends Madden away from a busy fall release calendar and titles such as NBA 2K19, Red Dead Redemption 2, Battlefield V, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

    The official press release from EA SPORTS and the Madden NFL 19 website provide the first M19 game details. Among the noted features: Real Player Motion Technology, selection of schemes and the ability to create Custom Draft Classes in Franchise Mode, and Player Upgrades and MUT Solo Battles in Madden Ultimate Team.

    The next release of M19 game info will come on Monday, May 28 with information on improvements coming to Madden Ultimate Team. Continue on to read the official press release from EA SPORTS. ...

    Today, HB Studios has announced that The Golf Club 2019 will include the PGA TOUR license.

    As part of the license, TGC 2019's Career Mode will include Q-School, the Web.com Tour, and a 32-tournament season. The six licensed TPC courses coming to the game are Summerlin, Scottsdale, Sawgrass, Southwind, Deere Run, and Boston. The announcement video and press release do not include the mention of any licensed PGA TOUR golfers. Additional authentic courses will be added to the game while the remainder of the Career Mode will be fleshed out with some of the 'most well-crafted user designed courses.' The press release also includes some additional details on Career Mode including Rivalries and Sponsor Goals.

    It is worth noting that nowhere in the press release or video does the word 'exclusive' appear in regards to HB Studios and the license. However, given that EA SPORTS pulled Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR from digital storefronts and EA Access on the same day as this announcement, it would seem EA SPORTS has dropped or lost some, if not all, of the PGA TOUR license.

    In a story originally by pastapadre.com, EA SPORTS will be removing Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR from digital storefronts and EA Access on May 22. His belief is that the game is being removed three years following release due to licensing issues. (UPDATE: As of 5/21, the game is no longer available to purchase via PSN or XBL.)

    Considered by many to be one of the best in the series, the final version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf finished with a Metacritic score in the mid-70s, while Rory McIlroy PGA Tour scored a 60. After exceeding internal sales expectations, Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR became an 'evergreen' title and featured several game updates that added new courses. However, it lacked the staying power of its predecessor and was considered disappointing by many as the game failed to resonate with the community due to a lacking feature set. ...
