Tiger Woods Shopping Around

Since EA is dropping Tiger from their PGA series, the golfer is looking to other companies to help keep his name in the gaming world. Wood’s agent, Mark Steinber, confirmed with GameSpot that they are shopping around to other gaming companies to see if anyone would be willing to take a chance. 

"Outside of Madden, you would be hard pressed to find a sports figure that meant as much to a video game company as Tiger meant to EA. But times are changing and EA had to re-evaluate the partnership and frankly so did we."

And that’s the thing…any company that does attempt to mage a new PGA game would be taking a big risk going up against the likes of EA Sports. EA isn’t dropping golfing from their line-up. PGA 2015 is still in production and will be a Tiger Woods free game. EA is still one of the tops when it comes to sports games, and pretty much owns the market on Football, Basketball, and Golfing. For another publisher to try and break into the golfing scene, it’s going to be one hell of a challenge. Particularly since EA has exclusive licensing rights to the PGA name for video games.

Good luck Tiger. You’re going to need it.
