With the Tiger Woods era over, EA Sports announced that their new golf game this year is titled EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, and it launches in June 2015 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The top-ranked golfer in the world, McIlroy talked about the game:

I’m very proud and humbled to see my face and name on EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour. 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.

Marking the first EA Sports title built using the Frostbite engine, EA Tiburon’s PGA Tour doesn’t include load times between holes since the entire course renders at once, allowing you to play your shot from almost any location.

Executive Producer Brent Nielsen added:

Frostbite has allowed us to take this franchise to a whole new level. 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.
