Infinite Air with Mark McMorris by HB was abandoned over 2 years ago and the servers are still up and they still sell the game. I paid $50 preordered for it and you can buy it today 90% off for 3 bucks on sale on Steam. That is a real bargain for it.

Common sense says they will release a new game, even if they only do it half-arsed. :) At the very least they will sell it and then we will still get a new TGC game.

I must admit... I have a little more faith in HSB.  2019 was a large step forward.  Who knows if they are being held back by 2K.  They were very free with information before they started teaming with others.

I've been around here since the beginning and I think I have a good read on the situation.  I've always been more of cyber golfer that likes a challenge but nothing too frustrating.   I think HB has tried to walk the line between the sim and the casual to a bit of a fault because in my opinion their focus should be on the masses first and foremost.   I truly believe that by listening to much to the sim crowd HB has somehow lost it's way. 

They tried so hard to be open minded while taking in all the jabber on the swing being too easy and dial a distance being horrible not realizing that the normal everyday crowd does want a simple refined swing and dial a distance.  Sure it's great to have options,  but the sim options need to be straightforward and just flat out hard as heck.  HB doesn't need to be spending time trying to satisfy a sim crowd that equates to a pimple on a goats arse.

In my opinion HB is at a crossroads.  They have to build the game from the ground up on a new engine and this is going to be incredibly difficult and the money it will take might not be in the budget.  On the other side of things I feel they could put out another game on the same engine but I'm sure they realize it's not going to be much of an upgrade at this point.   I think they're stuck in a rock and a hard place personally.

Hey! I resemble that remark!  :P
How did I make a twelve on a par five hole? It's simple - I missed a four foot putt for an eleven.

I think even that isn't enough. They want to start the game, feel what it's like to stand on the 7th tee at Pebble, have their caddie tell them what club to use, hit the ball and be reasonably sure that it will land a foot and a half from the cup. They want to grab a driver and hit it as far as Rory does but with none of the left or right nonsense that might put them in the rough. They want to be disappointed with par. They want to see their name at the top of every leaderboard. They want to be able to do this OOB without having to invest any time in practicing. If there was a way for them to punch a button on the controller and have the ball go in the hole, they would want that.

I figure at some point they will get bored doing all that and seek more of a challenge in-game, but until that time arrives they want it super easy and they want it NOW.

NB: I played a random skins match against a single opponent, and all he did was stand on the tee and let the timer expire. Hole after hole. I won every skin for 5 or 6 holes, but it took 2-3 minutes on each one to do that. I guess he thought that I'd get frustrated and quit, and he'd collect the win and the skins I left behind. I sent him a message in-game and said that I had a six-pack of a really nice IPA to drink and I had nothing else to do except sip my beer and wait for him to hit his shot, after which *he* quit and I got the win and the skins. Did he want to play golf? Nope. He wanted to pad his stats.
