2K Sports have announced a partnership with Tiger Woods which will see the 15-time major winner return to the gaming industry he once dominated with EA Sports.

Woods, who suffered career-threatening leg injuries when he crashed his car in Los Angeles last month, has signed a long-term deal with the company behind the ‘PGA Tour 2K’ video game series.

“I am looking forward to making my return to the video game landscape, and with 2K Sports and HB Studios, I’ve found the right partners to make it happen,” golfing icon Woods said in a press release.

“I’m honoured to take part in this opportunity and look forward to sharing my expertise and insights as we build the future of golf video games together.”

HB Studios president James Seaboyer admitted he was elated to be able to announce the new partnership.

“We’re thrilled to officially become part of the 2K family and continue development of the PGA TOUR 2K franchise,” he said.

“Our work with 2K on PGA TOUR 2K21 brought our capabilities and aspirations to the next level, and we can’t wait to show the world what we’re planning for the future.”

Woods spent 15 years with EA Sports where the ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour’ series became one of the most successful sports video games ever.

Woods and EA Sports parted in 2013, four years after news of Woods’ extramarital affairs tarnished his public image.
