Tiger Woods Development Shifts to EA Tiburon; 'Madden' Studio Growing

Year-in and year-out EA Sports' Madden football games are consistently best sellers. In fact, last year Madden NFL 07 was the top selling video game with almost 4 million copies sold in the U.S. Now EA Tiburon, the central Florida studio behind the Madden games, will not only be throwing around the virtual pigskin, but they'll also get a chance to swing the golf club. According to reports in the St. Petersburg Times and the Orlando Sentinel development on the Tiger Woods golf franchise has been moved from Redwood Shores in California to the talented folks at EA Tiburon.

Where is the competition you may ask?

Madden sucks...2K football will be back to kick it's ass. Only if the NFL would buy out EA's 5 year least on the NFL lisence.

Read these reasons and you'll see where I'm coming from, especially this first reason: COMPETITION plain & simple

EA thinks madden sells well because of the developers????? That's without a doubt one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.

All I have ever asked for from this game is to be able to play Augusta National (Masters) But every year it gets left out WHY? How can you have a golf game and leave out one of the most famous courses in the world? And this game is called (Tiger Woods) He has won the masters more than any other major golf tourny in his career. Maybe this new Dev. team will show Augusta some love but until that day i'm sticking with my TW'05

Do you not think they'd love to put that course in there? It's a trademark/licensing issue with the two sides. EA isn't going to pay an arm and a leg for it.

The TW series has been dying since 2004. That was a great game online. 2005 was ok but it's been complete garbage since then. Hopefully the move to Tiburon will help clean things up but it is EA after all.
