Augusta National Teams Up with EA Sports, Eldrick Woods

From Golf.com comes this piece that says Augusta National Golf Club will allow its layout to be used in a video game.

"Billy Payne, chairman of Augusta National, and EA Sports announced today that Augusta National and the Masters would be featured in 'Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters,' the next edition of the popular video game franchise," wrote Golf.com's David Dusek.

I'm wondering if this alliance will continue annually. Is so, will each new version have a statement read by the Augusta National chairman during a virtual press conference explaining how the most recent alterations to the golf course make it that much better while claiming the layout still adheres to the intent of original designers Bobby Jones and Alister Mackenzie?
