According to the “Daily Informer” entertainment blog, a source close to the development of the game says EA’s top brass was immediately called in for a meeting after the episode aired. EA has stuck by Tiger Woods amid his marital mishaps, and according to the report, EA was already worried about the possible fallout from doing so and the “South Park” episode is only making things worse. The source also remarked that there are definitely a few copyright infringements in the episode.
