Having skipped a 2014 release to reportedly give developer Tiburon more time to work on a next-gen version of the game, this 2015 PGA Tour game is the first for EA on the PS4 and XB1 consoles. It will keep with previous releases, containing both real world and fantasy golf courses. It is also the first golf game to run on the Frostbite Engine, with the debut trailer featuring Battlefield 4's Paracel Storm.
On October 28, 2013, it was announced that EA Sports and Tiger Woods had made a mutual decision to end their sixteen year relationship. This marked the first time since 1998 (Tiger Woods 99) that the PGA Tour franchise did not feature the legendary golfer's name in the title.
Along with this announcement, EA released the first screenshot from the next-gen versions of the game with a comparison shot of the same green (TPC Sawgrass's #17 island green) from Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 on PlayStation 3/Xbox 360.
On March 16th, 2015, Rory McIlroy was announced as the new cover athlete for the PGA Tour franchise.
