Two of Electronic Arts' major upcoming games, EA Maxis' The Sims 4 and EA Tiburon's next golf title, now have some release windows courtesy of the publisher's schedule for the 2015 fiscal year.
The Sims 4, which EA delayed to fall 2014 last October, is scheduled to be released on PC during the second quarter of EA's 2015 fiscal year. That would put the game's launch somewhere within the three-month period from July through September 2014. The other main EA titles set to be released during that quarter are Madden NFL 15, NHL 15 and FIFA 15. EA's third fiscal quarter, which runs from October through December, will include NBA Live 15, Dragon Age: Inquisition and an unannounced console title running on the Frostbite 3 engine that EA will reveal at E3 2014.
Last October, EA announced the end of its relationship with Tiger Woods for the publisher's Tiger Woods PGA Tour series of golf games, and indicated that the franchise would continue without him on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. EA is skipping this year, but the company's next golf game — the new name of which has yet to be revealed — is scheduled to be released during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. That means the publisher is aiming to launch the title from January through March 2015; the last few Tiger Woods titles were released at the end of March, just before the Masters Tournament.
