The latest game in the 16 year annualised golfing series, tiger woods PGA Tour 14 was released earlier this year. Yet another iterative update, the game makes a number of small changes to the formula – so hardly really worth the upgrade over PGA Tour 2013. Unless you were waiting for next year’s game – because it looks like it’s not happening.

In an effort to cut costs, it appears that Tiger Woods PGA Tour has been put on a year-long hiatus – so the next game will make its appearance on next-gen consoles in 2015.

It seems that EA had outsourced PGA Tour 15 to another developer so that its internal studio would have two years to work on building a next-gen version of the game. When former EA boss John Riccitielo resigned, however, the outsourcing was canned as a cost-saving exercise – effectively halting development.

If Golf’s your thing, you might want to pick up Tiger woods PGA Tour 14, because there won’t be another release for two years. I wouldn’t, however, put it past EA to just rebrand 14 as 15 and sell it for a second time next year. It’s not like they’ve never done it before.

EA has recently been subject to as much as a 10% reduction in workforce across the company – and the decision to can one of its biggest earners, if true, is a brave one indeed.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces.I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.I am also the emperor of the backend

    Is Woods posing with a school or crazies or is it just me? They all look a little… IFFY…

    PGA Tour 14 – R799
    14 course DLC – R379
    Online pass – R95
    That’s R1273 for the whole experience, I would rather partake in that mandigo party they got going in the header than spent anything on this game.

      Dude, Where do you buy your games. I bought mine at BT Games:
      PGA Tour 14 – Special edition – R539
      14 Course DLC – R330 (Playstation store)
      Online Pass – FREE

      Total = R 869

    Annual franchises is something I don’t get, yes some years they do have a great leap forward in one aspect, albeit normally at the expense of anouther and then that gets smoothed out for a couple of years with minor update until the next leap forward. I’ll bet that my ps2 tiger woods is as much fun to play as tiger woods 20xx, 20xx looks better I’ll grant you and may have some different courses but as far as fun goes bet there is little difference. And as far as something like Fifa goes had the most fun with Fifa 95, and that was arcadey graphics, but imho the most fun gameplay. Haven’t played the last few instalments though.

    So in conclusion TL;Dr skipping a year may actually mean a better game and an increase in desirability of said game.

    I got 14 and it’s pretty good, only problem is there are HORRIBLE sound issues. Sound is always breaking up, distorting and whatnot. Drives me up the wall esp after I forked out for the special masters edition.

    Tiger Woods 2014 with Arnold Palmer was riddled with nothing but problems. This needs to be fixed by the 2015 version coming out for PS4 with co-op play for 4. We need Golf and Tiger needs to get this done and made. I have no problem playing Bubba Watson’s PGA tour 2014 but with TIger’s name in it you know more $$ will go into development and great features.
