I'm definitely going to be in the market for a golf game in 2017. Now I'm going to have to decide which though.
Even though nothing has been announced yet, it seemed fairly obvious from the beginning that EA was going to be on the "every other year" plan with Rory McIlroy PGA Tour just like they are with their UFC franchise. That means a new one should be out mid 2017. I passed on the first one as it was bare bones and looked awful with it's lack of features, but I'm hoping they learned their lesson and will deliver everything that has been added through patches into the new game at launch. Time will tell as that is EA we are talking about.
Any way, the Golf Club does look spectacular and I may be willing to give it a shot, but I just know I will miss the real licensed golfers and courses that the other game has. If this is truly coming out in Q1, then at least it will be out for a few months before the other is and I can weigh the options then.
