Urgent Announcement: World Tour Golf more aptly named ProStroke Golf: World Tour 2007

Oxygen Interactive today announces its decision to change the name of its forthcoming title World Tour Golf.
Now named ProStroke Golf: World Tour 2007, its new title stems from recent worldwide success and enthusiastic receptions from select press at this year's E3, alongside definitive results from US focus testing. With a reception such as this, the publisher deemed that to ignore the results and positive feedback on the game's groundbreaking control mechanic, ProStroke - would be to discount the hard work and genuine passion that had gone into its making. This proved to the up-and-coming publisher that a generic title did not do justice to their game. With a name perfectly suited to a golf game for the European market, World Tour Golf was born. Now a golf simulation for a worldwide audience, ProStroke Golf has evolved. Oxygen Interactive are confident in their choice, while it may cause temporary confusion, Oxygen know that as in sport they must play to their strengths. Oxygen's CEO Jim Scott commented: 'Continuing with a generic name that had started as a working title short-changed the game. Pro Stroke Golf, on the other hand, puts the game's greatest feature right into the title, and makes it clear why this is the most interesting golf title this decade.' Prostroke Golf's mini-site is available at www.prostrokegolf.com
