Next Skate Game Won't Be At EA Play 2021, New Video Is A Huge Tease

A new video for the upcoming Skate game has debuted, but it doesn't offer much.


EA has announced that its next Skate game won't be shown off at its EA Play event on July 22. In a tweet posted by Full Circle, the developers explained that it's still too soon to show off the game.

"It's still early and we are committed to doing this thing right which means it's gonna take some time," the team at Full Circle explained.

It's not all bad news though, as Full Circle added that it'll have a "little something" to show off on July 19 [Update: this turned out to be a new video, which you can see below]. The latest Skate game was first announced at last year's EA Play, but other than the company remained tight-lipped on the project. Behind the scenes, Full Circle was officially formed in January this year and its staff includes Skate series veterans Deran Chung and Cuz Parry.

The video features developers on the project confirming that the game ... is in development. The video shows some behind-the-scenes footage of the motion-capture process. EA has apparently shown an early version of the game to members of the community, and the video is mostly these people talking about how hyped they are about what the new Skate is doing.

The video is self-aware. It ends with the narrator saying, "So we're just gonna end here? That's it? Ahhh, this is such a tease."

Skate 4--or whatever it is that EA eventually ends up calling the game--won't be the only title missing from the EA Play line-up, as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Star Wars won't be present either.

The event will instead be mostly focused on EA's live service titles and games that have already been announced, such as Apex Legends, a tease of the next Need for Speed game from Codemasters, and Battlefield 2042.

All that and a possible reboot of Dead Space if the rumors are true.
