I wasn’t anticipating to listen to about Skate 4 anytime quickly. It was solely in 2020 that EA announced a reboot for the fisheye road shredder was within the works, revealling that it had spun up a new studio to take action a number of months later.
It is the kinda factor I suspected would not have any concrete information for years to return. However primarily based on EA’s latest earnings name, we might get our sneakers on Skate before anticipated.
Talking in EA’s Q3 2022 earnings call (through TweakTown), CEO Andrew Wilson gestured at Skate in a remark round user-generated content material—noting that it might be core to the expertise of the skateboard revival which is supposedly launching “quickly”.
“It is on the very middle of modes like FIFA Final, even Madden Final Staff, to the very middle of the design of Skate, which we’ll be launching quickly,” mentioned Wilson. “And so this idea of UGC or user-generated content material is basically simply an extension of the social interplay that I will have with my buddies in and round experiencing what’s the greatest leisure on the planet. And so I consider that is going to be a extremely essential a part of our future.”
We’ll have to attend and see what Wilson’s definition of “quickly” finally ends up being. However hopefully this implies we’ll begin to see extra particulars on Skate over the approaching months. However there are plenty of weird and wonderful skateboarding games to take a look at within the meantime, together with subsequent week’s pleasant OlliOlli World.
