Electronic Arts has confirmed the development of a new Skate 4 game. Beyond the fact that development is at a very early stage, no further details have been given.
In recent years, the calls for a new Skate game has been increasing. And it should take until the end of the fairly manageable EA Play event before the new part was at least confirmed. Chief Studios Officer, Laura Miele, made the announcement of the new Skate game. He indicated that the calls from the fans had been heard and that he was actively working on a new game in the series.
However, you should not expect the release too soon. Cuz Parry and Deran Chung, Game Director and Creative Director of the game, also announced that the development of the new Skate – let’s call it Skate 4 – is at the very beginning of development.
The official press release reads as follows: “Skate is back! In response to the voices of incredibly passionate fans for nearly a decade, Chief Studios Officer, Laura Miele, left one last surprise for players. Cuz Parry and Deran Chung, the game’s Game Director and Creative Director respectively, shared that while this is just the beginning and there is a long way to go, work on the next evolution in the Skate franchise has begun.”
The first game in the series was released in 2007 for the two last-gen consoles of PS3 and Xbox 360. The successor Skate 2 followed for the same platforms in 2009, before Skate 3 was launched a year later – also for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
In the case of Skate 4. there is no release date given yet. However, the current state of development suggests that it is a game that is more designed for the next-gen systems of PS5 and Xbox Series X.
