EA Access is going to be dropping a game from their service. Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is being removed from the EA Access Vault on May 22nd. The news was posted on the EA Access blog:
“Unfortunately, we have to announce that EA SPORTS™Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR® will soon be removed from digital storefronts and will no longer be available for purchase. It will also be leaving the EA Access Vault on May 22, 2018.
We’re sad to see any title leave the collection, and rest assured that we’ll do our best to limit removals in the future. For now, we hope you enjoy the other great games in our service, and we look forward to bringing you even more.”
No real reason was given for why the game will be removed. The series never recovered after Tiger Woods was dropped as the celebrity athlete for the franchise. If you want to enjoy some golf on the Xbox One then you have until the 22nd to buy this game. After that you will not be able to buy the digital version. Stores should still have used copies of the game but don’t expect the online support to stick around forever either. Hopefully EA will bring back the Tiger Woods PGA Tour that we all miss. Until then, find a Nintendo Switch and play some Golf Story.
