EA is 'not presently' working on Skate 4

A community manager dropped a tweet about the game, but there's nothing going on... right now.


An EA community manager tweeted about Skate 4 last weekend, but CEO Andrew Wilson put rumors concerning a skateboarding sequel during today's earnings report.

Wilson said that EA is "not presently" working on Skate 4, leaving the door open for the franchise to return when consumer demand and development resources align.

Skate has lain fallow since 2010's Skate 3 for Xbox 360 and PS3. Chief competitor Tony Hawk's Pro Skater made a comeback in 2015 with a fifth numbered entry, but the game was panned by critics in fans for rampant glitches and unpolished content.

EA dropped even more information during its earnings call, including huge sales for FIFA 17 and an announcement that BioShock's new game is an action-adventure rather than an RPG, and will release before the end of March 2018.
