Report: Tiger Woods Already in Talks with Unnamed Video Game Company

While EA Sports has announced that it has broken its long-time relationship with golfing sensation Tiger Woods, it looks like Woods may already be talking to other game companies about putting his name and face on a whole new product. Tiger Woods' agent Mark Steinberg told ESPN that he is currently speaking with another unnamed video game company regarding video game rights.

"We had an incredible run," Steinberg told ESPN. "Outside of [John] Madden, you would be hard pressed to find a sports figure that meant as much to a video game company as Tiger meant to EA. But times are changing and EA had to re-evaluate the partnership and frankly so did we."

If one were to guess who Woods might be talking to, the first company to come to mind is the only one that directly competes with EA Sports at this point: 2K Sports. Of course, that's just speculation on our part, but it makes perfect sense.

EA Sports' announced that its non-Tiger Woods branded golf game, a new PGA Tour title, is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and mobile devices, with a release date to be determined.
