Shaun West, senior producer and Josh Muise, creative director from HB Studios have provided additional details on PGA TOUR 2K21, in their latest in-depth developer walkthrough video.
r/PGA_Tour_2K: Is there any resolution to having tournaments/games (whether in career mode, societies or online matchmaking) not end in a tie/draw?
HB Studios: No. In career mode, the player breaks ties for first, but in all other cases, there are still draws.
r/PGA_Tour_2K: Will the game have DLC in the future? If so, could you give an idea of what kind of DLC to expect?
HB Studios: Yes. We are aiming to introduce more licensed courses, new modes, and new MyPLAYER options.
r/PGA_Tour_2K: When the next-gen PlayStation and Xbox are released, will the game be updated for these next-gen consoles? If so, how will players be able to get these updates?
HB Studios: There will not be a bespoke version of the game for the new platforms but PGA TOUR 2K21 will support backward compatibility.
r/PGA_Tour_2K: Can you tell us more about the modes of play available in online games?
HB Studios: Private Online matches will ship with all previously available formats—Stroke, Stableford, Match Play, Skins, Four-Ball, Alt-Shot; and one new addition: 2v2 Scramble.
The matchmaking options will be a subset of these at any given time. The available modes can be adjusted by HB Studios at any time based on community feedback, or data that shows a mode may be getting stale.
