2K Sports have announced a partnership that will see the 15-time major winner return to the gaming industry!
What an exciting time for fans of golf video game series; Tiger Woods has officially announced his next project will be dominating the video game industry yet again.
We all know woods from dominating EA Sports back in the day, but he has now signed a deal with the PGA Tour 2K21 which supports golf simulation games and has already sold over two million copies worldwide since it was released in August 2020.
This is excellent news for Woods, who suffered significant injuries last month when he crashed his car in Los Angeles. We expect the follow-up at the end of the summer.
Woods agreed to the exclusive deal to be back on our screens soon in pixel form and has agreed to the long-term contract publisher. 2K have also revealed they have acquired the privately-owned HB Studios, the developer of the latest iteration in the 2Kseries PGA Tour 2K21, and The Golf Club franchise.
HB Studios will be part of the interactive family, as the deal is expected to be closed within the first calendar quarter of 2021. No financial information regarding any arrangements has been released yet.
Woods will take on the role of executive director, and the agreement includes rights for his name and likeness to appear exclusively in the PGA Tour 2K franchise and any other golf games published by 2K during the partnership term.
Woods is super excited about this new venture and made an official statement saying: “I am looking forwardto making my return to the video game landscape, sharing my expertise and insights as we build the future of golf video games together,” the 15-timemajor champion, who has just returned home after a three-week stay in hospital as a result of a car accident.
PGA Tour shared a video on Twitter on Tuesday saying –
“It's time to roar, is back! We are stoked to announce that we are joining forces with @tigerwoods to take to the virtual links in the #PGATOUR2K franchise.The future is bright, and what better way to move PGA forward than with the15-time Majors winner at the helm!”
