It’s been a long 11 years since the last time Skate saw a release. However, for the PC folks out there, those days may pass by a little faster knowing this news. The OG Skate trilogy only released on consoles with some mobile spinoffs here and there. But, EA has made an effort to return to PC in the last few years. Even Madden returned to the platform for the first time since Madden 08.
It’s still been relatively quiet around Skate 4. Since its announcement last summer, Canada-based Full Circle has started development but we’re still a ways out from anything tangible let alone a release. That said, when asked about gameplay creative leaders for the new game, Deran Chun and Chris Parry had this to say:
“It’s going to feel like a Skate game… It’s not going to be something different.”
Skating games have seen a bump in love recently. Earlier this year, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 got the remaster treatment and there are plans to bring back other classic titles in the famed series. Skate was an immediate hit when it initially launched on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2007. EA Black Box followed it up with two sequels Skate 2 and 3 that helped cement the series as a classic.
