Last April, insider Jeff Grubb premiered the first gameplay video of Skate 4, the newest chapter in EA’s sports series currently in production. The gameplay footage showed a pretty promising Pre-Alpha build, and the rumor is that the video was from a long time ago, with the team making great progress over 2022 and even starting playtests on Origin. Now another insider, Tom Henderson, has revealed that he is aware of when the game will be shown to the public and is close to the presentation event.
In a new article for TryHardGuides, Henderson stated that the presentation of the new Skate is expected in July and that journalists and content creators will have the opportunity to try it out in advance and share their impressions with the public. The game currently doesn’t have a release date, but EA has four unnamed IPs coming out by the end of the fiscal year 2022/23, and it’s possible Skate 4 is one of them.
Skate 4 was announced by EA as a kind of soft reboot of the series, and the official title could be Skate. Daniel McCulloch, Deran Chung, and Cuz Parry, creators of the first chapter of 2007, are working on the project at the new Full Circle studio in Vancouver, created specifically by Electronic Arts. If Tom Henderson’s sources turn out to be correct, we will soon be able to see the fruits of the team’s work.
