EA Is Not Making Skate 4 Right Now

No, the game is not in development...yet.

23 Comments

An Electronic Arts community manager recently tweeted about Skate 4, fueling speculation that the company might be working on its long-dormant skateboarding series.

It's not happening, at least not yet, EA has confirmed. During an earnings call today, EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that EA is "not presently making Skate 4." He joked that this is a big disappointment for EA CFO Blake Jorgensen, who is apparently a fan of the series.

No Caption Provided

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.

EA hasn't ruled out eventually making a new Skate game, but it doesn't appear that it will happen anytime soon or ever.

In other skateboard video game news, Tony Hawk has confirmed that he's thinking about making a new game--and it won't be with Activision. There is nothing that connects Hawk's new game to EA.

You speak like you personally know everyone at EA and are aware of all their secrets. The confidence in your writing makes it seem like you know everything going on inside their heads. Who ever wrote this is either just pulling shit out of their ass, or EA paid you big bucks to hype the release. Bring people down with a bogus article, and they are that much more excited when the actual announcement goes public.

-EA "Are we really that basic....?"

EA is so dumb. Skate 4 is probably the most anticipated game they have, and they wont make it...

Guess EA was upset they didn't make "Worst Company in America" in '16, so they decided to start working towards that goal early this year. You got this EA.

Nothing of value is lost. It's EA, so chances are that Skate 4 is "finished", meaning it's halfway done, but they're not sure if they want to release it as is and do their signature move of releasing the remainder as DLC, or if someone got a full 8 hour sleep and decided that it's best not to mention anything until it's 100% complete (even though EA doesn't know what 'complete' means)

Tony Hawk got the memo that the past game was shit. Good to hear that he's moving from Activision.

I'm sure he did that to build up hype so EA will consider making it. Just like the Ryan Reynolds Deadpool test footage was leaked.

Ironically, both games you'd prefer them to make instead of sports games are also sports games...

Oh I see, I thought you were trying to say that all sports games were shitty, which is why I thought it was ironic.
