Tiger Woods PGA Tour To Miss 2013
There has been a Tiger Woods PGA Tour game each and every year since 1999. But the streak is finally over.
According to sources speaking to Kotaku, Electronic Arts unfortunately won't be publishing a new Tiger Woods title this year. Next up would've been Tiger Woods PGA Tour 15.
It seems the company had initially planned to outsource the new installment, for the sake of giving in-house team EA Tiburon two full years to make Tiger Woods PGA Tour 16 for next-generation consoles. But in the interest of saving costs after CEO John Riccitiello resigned last month, EA decided to drop that idea. Currently, there's no knowing when the long-running franchise will return, although it's probably safe to assume we'll see it when the new generation is officially upon us. Golf fans want it back, we're sure.
The popularity of golf and the athlete in question has been on the wane ever since that well-publicized scandal. EA may have been feeling the effects of that in the past few years.
