Skate 4 won’t be making an appearance at next week’s EA Play Live event. The game’s developer, Full Circle, made the announcement today via Twitter though hint that we may see “something” tomorrow, ahead of the show.
Commenting on the fact that’s it been a year since the Skate sequel was revealed, the studio says it’s still too early to show fans what they’ve made so far.
Full Circle only opened their doors in January so don’t expect to see Skate 4 in action for some time yet. It’s likely the team wanted to get out ahead of the EA Play event to manage expectations and keep the focus on what’s being shown during the broadcast. Here’s the full statement from the Skate dev team:
What have we been up to? Well, we formed a studio back in January, got a bunch of super talented people to join the family, and we’ve been working hard on the new game. We know many of you were hoping to see more from us this week but we’re not ready for prime time just yet and we won’t be part of the EA Play Live show on Thursday. It’s still early and we are committed to doing this thing right which means it’s gonna take some time.
Our number one goal is not to blow it. For you, for us… for Skate. However, we are stoked to share a little something with you all tomorrow.
Exactly what that something is, we don’t know. Perhaps Full Circle will introduce us to some of skateboarding talent helping them to bring the project to life. Or maybe we could see the older Skate games make a comeback at EA Play.
The publisher will be hosting a 40 minute showcase this Thursday, highlighting upcoming games including Battlefield 2042, Lost in Random, and EA Sports titles. There will also be ” a couple other games” shown according to EA’s David Tinson.
You can watch EA Play live from 18:00PM UK time (10AM PT/1PM ET) starting with a pre-show.
