The game was announced at a press briefing prior to the Tokyo Game Show in September 2014, with a planned release in 2015. In the announcement, Shuhei Yoshida of Sony's Worldwide Studios said that the upcoming game would feature open world elements for the first time in the history of the series.
In April 2017, a worldwide release date of late August was announced, along with information of pre-order offers and a closed beta test. The pre-order pack consists of a number of in-game items; a course to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the game series, a premium golf cart, exclusive character costumes and a PlayStation 4 dashboard theme. The game marks the end of the alternate Hot Shots branding for the North American market, with the title Everybody's Golf being used worldwide. In June 2018, an update will be released in collaboration with Level-5, who were celebrating their 20th anniversary and had a close relationship with Sony during their early years. It will add characters to the game from their Dark Cloud, White Knight Chronicles, Ni no Kuni II, Professor Layton, and Yo-kai Watch franchises.
