Tiger Woods Dropped By Video Game Company After 15 Years

Tiger Woods, EA Sports Mutually Part Ways by NewsyVideos

Since 1998 (when it introduced the "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 99" game for Playstation) EA Sports has sold around $771 million worth of games using Tiger Woods' name in the title.

But, according to an October 29th 2013 report from ESPN, that relationship has ended:

"We had an incredible run," said Woods' agent Mark Steinberg, who explained the latest contract had expired. "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."
