EA Sports Announce Rory McIlroy PGA Tour

Electronic Arts has announced that Rory McIlroy will be the new star of the PGA Tour franchise. Replacing the long standing position of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy PGA Tour will be the new name of the franchise moving forward. "McIlroy, a 4-time Major champion and top-ranked golfer in the world, represents a new generation of players for a new generation of consoles."

“I’m very proud and humbled to see my face and name on EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR,” said McIlroy. “This is a great honor, and something I couldn’t even dream of growing up playing the sport. I really hope people enjoy the game and I’m very glad I can be a part of it.”

Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR is the first EA Sports title to be built using the Frostbite engine. The same engine that powers the Battlefield series. This allows the team to create beautiful new environments, featuring the most detailed courses in franchise history. The engine also eliminates load times between holes and allowing users to play their shot from almost any location.

“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.”

Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR is being developed by EA Tiburon and will be available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in June 2015.
