    Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR - Launching in July


    EA SPORTS has announced that their returning golf franchise will be branded as Rory McIlroy PGA Tour and will be released in June. Pre-orders will receive TPC Scottsdale, host of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

    The game will feature a new commentary team featuring The Golf Channel's Frank Nobilo and Rich Lerner. Users will be able to select from three unique swing mechanics and 'fully customizable' gameplay styles. Some additional images and basic game information can be found on the game's official product website.



    Here is the full press releases from EA SPORTS:

    Electronic Arts Inc.

We’re looking forward to sharing a lot of great news with our fans throughout the rest of the spring.”

Gorgeous real-world courses and epic fantasy tracks provide players with not only the most realistic representations of their favorite locales, but the opportunity to explore brand-new locations. Full course loading offers limitless options when attacking the green and zero wait times when moving from one hole to the next. Experience the next generation of golf and play where you want, when you want, how you want.

    EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR is developed in Orlando, Florida by EA Tiburon and will be available for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system in June 2015.

    I just do not get the feeling of having to name the game with a golfer in the title - its just not smart business.

    JB - The Frostbite video has been removed by EA.

    There is also a video showing the golfers in the game that has been removed.

    Hopefully both return soon.

    I enjoy the commentator by Frank and Rich on the Golf Channel. Definitely should be a nice addition to the game.

    Also don't care what it's named, though not a surprise that they went with Rory

    Yep, Rory is the most logical choice outside of Tiger. About the only other household name right now would be Phil Mickelson, maybe Bubba Watson. Rickie Fowler would have been a year or two ago, but he's sort of dropped off into the background right now.

    Too soon for Spieth too, but the future may be now after he won this past week.

    JB, you once said you thought they might be delaying the release for a "certain reason", can you share that suspected reason now?

    I agree with the CLW, not sure why they have to tie a pro to the title, I guess that's how EA does it, they don't release any sports title with-out a cover athlete. The difference seems with the golf game, they put their name on it. Why isn't it just PGA Tour and have his picture?

    Madden, NHL, FIFA, MMA, all those don't have the players name in the title, why golf? Why not just call it PGA Tour? Is there a name or brand infringement ?

    Any word on the course list? I see 2 videos on TPC Sawgrass and Wolf Creek, then there is a pre-order bonus that includes TPC Scottsdale.

    Any word on more courses?

    It says we will be able to play the Waste Management Open with the famous 16th hole, it also says we'll be able to play as a pro....

    Can we do this?



    If it's in the game, it's in the game right?

    Not at the moment, and I'm not even sure if that was the reason why.

    I assume if Nantz is gone from commentary it is a safe bet so is the Augusta National.

    That's what I was thinking as well SC

    I do like Nantz commentating the Master's in real life. Man that first intro damn near gives me chills when it starts. Look forward to this time of year every year
