EA has put the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series on hold as a cost-saving measure, according to anonymous sources.
Kotaku cites unnamed insiders for word that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 15 – which would have released in 2014 – was to be outsourced, so the development team would have two years to build Tiger Woods PGA Tour 16 for next-generation consoles.
This plan was allegedly shelved when John Riccitiello resigned as CEO, apparently as a cost-saving measure, and the game has not been reassigned to another development team.
The sources also said that some members of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour development staff have been moved onto other teams within EA Tiburon, and that the EA Sports label as a whole has suffered a 10% loss of staff in the publisher’s restructuring. EA hasn’t commented on the matter.
The latest Tiger Woods game, PGA Tour 14, released last month.
