EA Community Manager Tweets "#Skate4"

It looks like EA is teasing Skate 4 (maybe).

66 Comments

Is EA finally going to make Skate 4? We still don't know. But EA's Daniel Lingen, a senior manager for community engagement, offered a glimmer of hope (maybe) recently on Twitter.

As spotted by NeoGAF, Lingen recently sent this seemingly out-of-the-blue tweet about the unannounced skateboarding game:

The tweet confirms nothing at all. Skate 4 may never exist. But this tweet does.

The Skate series has been dormant since 2010's Skate 3 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. More recently, EA made a lot of people happy by adding the game to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility catalog.

Would you like to see Skate 4? Let us know in the comments below!

Skate 2 was incredible, best skateboarding game ever made IMO. Skate 3 was ok; it was less geared towards skaters, the plot was lame, the bail goals were stupid, and the mocap and skating in general doesn't look as smooth realistic as Skate 2.

I'm still way down for a Skate 4 though.

Hell Yeah bring us back Skate, and since EA is at it, bring Burnout back ASAP, but don't screw it all up like Need For Speed.

What kinda cock swallowing jjizz minister would tweet something like this and not make "Skate 4"? I mean it would be like offering a starving dog crawling on its belly a steak and just when its like 2 inches away from the steak you punt the poor dog into a near by river.

Will waste their time in making boring repetitive skate games but wont give out another fight night game, this sums EA up perfectly who was wanting this game, Skate games is like a thing you play for an hour or two then you stop playing it forever due to copying and repeating.

@Keitha313: I spent tons of time playing the Skate games, especially Skate 2. I love setting up ramps and rails for sweet runs around the city and making videos with them. It was cool moving around objects to set up for a trick or line just like skating in real life. I'm guessing you don't skateboard in real life and that's why you didn't enjoy Skate.

@Keitha313: I guess you didn't play Skate before because Skate was lots of things but repetitive wasn't one of them. Skate 3 was fun because you could find a spot and just spend hours trying to do trick or Doing videos, then when that got boring it was off to the Hall of Meat!

@Keitha313: I disagree. I loved the Skate games. I think EA has the resources to make a new Skate Game, and a new Fight Night game. But for Gods sakes, put them on pc!!! We hardly have any sports games.

@Keitha313: I hope you're a troll because of not, you're an idiot. Target audiences are going to recognize Nyjah Houston, Ryan Sheckler, and even an "old man" like Rob Dyrdek over boxers like... Um... Oh yeah I can't think of any current boxers. Because no one watches boxing. SLS and X-Games occupy primetime TV spots. The competitors are from all over the world (ironically the UK has never produced a world class skater "mate") People skate. People watch skating. If that's not your thing than whatever. But your assertions are wrong. And I'm pretty sure that you are just an idiot.

@a_feral_persona: Nobody knows who those people are so stop kidding yourself on little boy, you really think a bum ass old man dressing like he's still in his teens is what the masses are wanting to see?

Lets compare Boxing PPV numbers Anthony Joshua Vs. Eric Molina that did 500 thousand buys and Joshua has sold out Wembley for his fight with Wladimir Klitschko 90 thousand people, Golovkin Vs. Kell Brook that did 650 thousand, Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao that grossed the biggest amount of revenue of any sport it drew in many, many millions of buys on PPV.

So tell me who are these people that are paying to watch a bunch of dorky ass losers get on a skateboard, tell me whens the last time 90 thousand people amassed to watch those people?

Gotta find it funny though you talk about not hearing of any boxer but If we were to ask a random person out about in the street to name a number of boxers then name a number of skaters I bet you they could only name one skater that's how dead that scene is I guess the UK doesn't approve of being douchebags maybe that's why they don't have any skaters a dead thing.

@Keitha313: TARGET audience you dumb ****. This is about games that gamers want to play. Boxing games sell like shit. That's why they don't make them. Beyond that MMA will replace boxing before too long anyway. Floyd Mayweather might have been a big sell but big sells in the boxing world are few and far between. And despite what you think, young people don't care about men throwing punches at each other with mittens on. UFC is quickly closing the gap in a decade despite boxing being an established sport for a century. You're still an idiot.

I had a friend who makes shirts edit his Tony Hawk one so it'd say "Where the F*** is Skate 4?" instead, so this excites me.

Things I want in Skate 4:

  • More tricks, including stalls as long as they are as seamless within the control scheme as everything else.

  • Weather and day/night cycles. Skating in the rain with realistic sliding could be a fun and engaging challenge

  • Falling animations/tighter animations in general. The ragdoll falls in the first three took a sense of realism away.

  • Now that most people have mastered the controls, adding a very small stat mechanic could be awesome to feel a sense of progression again. Something like ollie height, speed, push strength, landing stability etc. That way you can't trick down a 20 stair right away. Maybe only a 5 or 6 stair for starters.

  • A simple yet refined online experience. Skate 3 suffered horribly from so many different types of online lobbies (ranked, unranked, etc) which divided everyone. Maybe 8 player free roam, where you can start challenges if so desired

  • Less arcadey stuff like Hall of Meat. Seeing injuries is cool, but having to do a superman cannonball off a roof is not skateboarding

  • The smallest thing but one of my biggest annoyances was the pushing animation that was never addressed in any of the games. The skater always puts his foot up past the board like he would be going for another push, then rests it on the board. It looks super clunky when you notice it

  • Manuals would be way more satisfying if the game made them harder to pull off. Once you find that sweet spot on the analog stick, it's an every time thing. Maybe have a dynamic manual location or a low key balance mechanic

@thrashermagx: Agree with almost all of this EXCEPT the hall of meat part. Yes, it was very arcade-y and no way realistic as far as falls go, but they were a constant source of laughter when playing with friends. Also the manuals thing is something I thought about too but I think I'd prefer fun over realism.

I will buy Skate 4. The gameplay for this series is just amazing. It's intuitive, fun, and just feels good to play. I still play Skate 3. Just to imagine Skate 3 with next-gen graphics and some of the kinks worked out, man, that would be awesome!
