Well, EA Sports has been very quiet about their new golf game simply titled “PGA Tour” which was the name of their very first title back in 1986. They released an epic trailer for the Tiger Woodsless video game back in June of 2014 during the popular E3 video game convention where Ian Poulter is seen blasting a tee shot over a moving battleship during war.
Ever since then however, EA has been almost completely silent since the trailer leaving fans questioning if the game will release this year or not. Some fans believe EA has been retooling the game to compete with the increasingly popular golf simulation game, The Golf Club by HB Studios.
Either way, they finally look like they’re about to spill the beans on their new game. They did a little teaser video on Twitter and Facebook just to mess around with fans once again.
Here’s the 12 second clip:

A lot of fans think it’s an Easter Egg and I can partially agree because of the color. From my view it just looks a little too round to be an Easter Egg but the way it rolls might have something to do with that.
Thing is, the caption of the video says “Let’s get the ball rolling”. “BALL”. I see many people say that if it is indeed an egg, than that means the game may release on Easter which could very well be likely despite GameStop’s placeholder date of June 30th.
Another tweet tells us that the game could be bigger than expected:

And in case you didn’t see it (This is probably the third time I shared it), here’s the epic trailer of the game which was showcased way back in June of 2014.
As a video game geek, I can write about golf video games all day, and I too feel like I’m going nuts because EA has been teasing us for so long.
But don’t be surprised if we hear some news on Tuesday which is a day where video games, books, etc are all released, including game news.
The wait is finally over my friends! *Party horns sound*
