The 2K franchise took two years off producing a golf game to put all its time and effort into PGA Tour 2K23. After a long wait, we are finally getting our hands on the game. The newest installment of the PGA Tour 2K franchise officially releases on October 14th, but pre-order digital editions have already gone live.
