Remember when an EA community manager tweeted out “#skate4” and it gave us the tiniest bit of hope that a sequel to the franchise would finally be announced? Because it’s not happening and this was confirmed by none other than EA CEO Andrew Wilson himself.
In an earnings call today, Wilson noted that the publisher is “not presently making Skate 4“. Apparently this is a disappointment for EA CFO Blake Jorgensen who really likes the series.
However, the key takeaway is “not presently”. It’s possible that a new Skate title arrives sometime in the future but that will be later rather than sooner.
The last major title in the Skate franchise was Skate 3 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Xbox 360 version is being added to the Xbox One’s list of backwards compatible games which is a big plus. Would you like to see Skate 4 though? Let us know in the comments below.
