EA Sports has terminated its partnership with Tiger Woods, ending a fifteen year relationship with the professional golfer.

The publisher announced the split alongside details of a new next-gen golf title, currently in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

"EA Sports and Tiger Woods have... made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger's named PGA TOUR golf game," said the publisher. "We've always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavors.

"Moving forward, we will continue to work with the PGA TOUR exclusively to create groundbreaking golfing titles and our partnership remains strong."

EA first partnered with Woods on the original Tiger Woods PGA Tour 99 back in 1998, and has released a new Tiger Woods PGA Tour title each year since. The last Tiger Woods title, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, released in March of this year.

"EA Sports golf fans have always loved authentic courses and players, but they've also asked for more choice and customization in how and where they play," added the publisher, while discussing the new title.

"We're working on a new approach to deliver the best golf experience to our fans - we think you'll love it, and so we're excited to share the first screenshot of our next generation golf game currently in development."

The screenshot of the unnamed golf game can be seen below, along with a comparison of a current-gen version. A release date and title for the game have yet to be announced.
