Peter Moore, the president of EA Sports, wrote a blog post this week, noting that the company plans to stick by Tiger Woods, continuing in production of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online game. The game, which has been in closed beta for months, will enter into open beta in January. Moore writes about Woods:
By his own admission, he's made some mistakes off the course. But regardless of what's happening in his personal life, and regardless of his decision to take a personal leave from the sport, Tiger Woods is still one of the greatest athletes in history. At EA Sports, we make authentic sports simulations. When we say "It's in the Game," it is not just a tag line but a statement about the quality and authenticity of the game experience. Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online is truly representative of that rallying cry, and a game that all of us at EA Sports are proud to be delivering this month to sports fans around the globe.
