The Skate franchise has been dormant for a decade. Today, the game’s Twitter account suddenly went active and Skate 4 was finally confirmed.
“We’ve been waiting years, honestly, to make the right game at the right time with the right idea,” says the game’s director, Deran Chung. “I’m really, really pleased to say that we’re here.”
Chung adds that “it is really early” in the game’s development. So don’t expect to see a whole lot of news about it in the immediate future. But at least it has been confirmed!
It’s been 10 years since the last Skate game was released. Skate 3 launched on May 11, 2010 on PS3 and Xbox 360. So it’s entirely possible that it will skip PS4 and Xbox One. We’re guessing – although it hasn’t been confirmed – that it is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X. We’ll see though.
While the skateboarding genre has been somewhat quiet in recent years, that’s starting to change pretty quickly. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are getting remakes and Skater XL is getting a multi-platform release in July. Now we’re getting Skate 4.
