New Skate Information
In a tweet from the Skate dev team, they said, “We know many of you were hoping to see more from us this week, but we’re not ready for prime time just yet, and we won’t be part of the EA Play Live show on Thursday.” They went on to mention that the game is still early in development, but the goal is to “not blow it for you, for us… for skate.”
The surprise announcement of Skate’s return came in June 2020 and broke EA’s Twitter engagement record.
The new Skate entry is developed by Vancouver-based studio Full Circle. Full Circle is a new studio formed by EA tasked to deliver a great experience to a beloved franchise. The new studio is headed up by former Xbox Live general manager Daniel McCulloch. He spent 15 years with Microsoft’s gaming business before departing in June 2020.
Full Circle is a team that embraces a “geo-diverse team and culture”. The studio currently has openings on the website, and like to hire around the world.
It has been 11 long years since the last Skate release. Leading up to the Thursday showcase, EA has been showcasing the titles like Madden and Battlefield 2042. Earlier this month, EA announced the return of a sports franchise. EA continues to have their hands full with Madden, FIFA, Battlefield 2042, and the return of NCAA Football.
This week will be a big week for fans and EA. We will keep an eye out as more information releases.
