EA have announced that Rory McIlroy’s name will be the one on the cover of the next PGA game coming this year.
Since it began its yearly iterations, Tiger Woods was the name associated with EA’s golfing franchise. That changed following Tiger’s personal scandals and lack of form in the following year or so.
This will also mark the first game in the series to run on the Frostbite engine.
“Frostbite has allowed us to take this franchise to a whole new level,” stated Brent Nielsen, Executive Producer of EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR. “The new engine drastically improves all facets of the game, from core gameplay to opportunities for brand-new modes and features. We’re looking forward to sharing a lot of great news with our fans throughout the rest of the spring.”
