2K Sports announces more details about the first-ever PGA Tour 2K game, which is launching in August.

The first-ever PGA Tour 2K game, PGA Tour 2K21, releases this year, and developer HB Studios has now announced some new details about what to expect.

The developer answered fan questions on Reddit, and started off by confirming that there will not be cross-play support for multiplayer. However, the courses made with PGA Tour 2K21's level editor can be shared across all systems. The game is releasing on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and Stadia.

Additionally, PGA Tour 2K21 will allow players to import their custom courses from The Golf Club 2019 to the new game and use its new tools and assets with the new game.

HB Studios also confirmed that it's removing the "Club Sets" feature from the previous game that included different difficulty levels. In PGA Tour 2K21, the developers are taking a different approach--but we'll have to wait to learn more.

"The concept of Club Sets have been removed from the game," the studio said. "There will be more information as we approach launch about the depth of control each user will have over the way the game will play for them. Online play matchmaking will ensure that all players are using the same settings."

A big change for PGA Tour 2K21 is that it will feature real-life professional golfers. Justin Thomas is the game's cover star, and he's one of 12 pro golfers in the game. The remaining 11 have not been announced yet, and HB Studios confirmed that it won't release additional golfers for purchase. "There will not be Tour pros available for purchase," the developer said.

PGA Tour 2K21 launches on August 21, and it will enter the market with little to no competition in the officially licensed golf simulation market. EA stopped developing its own PGA Tour games after it parted ways with Tiger Woods. The company tried to rebrand the franchise with Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, but that franchise was dumped after one release.
