Following an agonizingly long break, the Skate franchise is coming back. Announced during the EA Play Live showcase in June 2020, the game closed up the show by promising a game fans of the series have been asking for years. Here is everything we know so far about the upcoming game.
As of this writing, we have no idea when Skate 4 will release, or even if it will be named Skate 4. During the EA Play Live show, it was merely confirmed to be in production by creative director Cuz Parry and game director Deran Chung. With no more details on the game, we speculate that the game is still quite a way off. We’re guessing more than a couple years away with Chung saying that “this is the beginning” of development.
As mentioned above, no details on Skate 4 have been revealed as of this writing. Once we know more, we will update this section to discuss what is returning and changing with the game.

The announcement by Chung and Parry let us know that this game, even hitting development, is thanks to the constant passion from the fanbase. “You commented this into existence,” Parry says with a smile.
While it may be a while before we know anything more about the new Skate game, it appears that EA is very excited to breathe new air into the franchise.
