Tiger Woods and Electronic Arts have mutually agreed to end their partnership, which included Woods' named PGA TOUR video game, the company announced on Monday.
EA is developing a golf title for next-generation game consoles and said it will continue to work with the PGA TOUR -- albeit without Woods.
"We've always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavors," said Daryl Holt, vice president and general manager of golf for EA Sports, on the company's blog. "Moving forward, we will continue to work with the PGA TOUR exclusively to create groundbreaking golfing titles and our partnership remains strong."
Calls and emails to Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, were not immediately returned.
Under the EA agreement, the company had released a title bearing Woods' name every year from 1998 through 2013. Prior to that, it published a number of games under the PGA TOUR name.
