No New game or Update for 2017(golf game has been shelved)

One omission from the discussion regarded a potential follow-up to "Rory McIlroy PGA Tour." The company originally planned to release a new golf game every other year, but it appears now the series has been put on the shelf. The McIlroy game was heavily criticized at release because of its lack of content — and, unsurprisingly, sales numbers disappointed. The loss of the license for The Masters hurt a great deal, and there were only nine licensed courses and 12 real golfers. More were added post-release, but by then the damage was done. The lack of a natural way to generate digital revenue in a golf game is likely another big factor for why a sequel isn't coming in 2017.
