Not only are we seeing the return of Tony Hawk Pro Skater this year, but EA is also reviving Skate. Fans of Skate have been asking for another entry to the series since Skate 3, which released all the way back in 2010. Finally, EA has listened, confirming a new Skate game during last night’s EA Play stream.
The official Skate Twitter account posted the announcement, which contains the full announcement clip from EA Play Live:

The announcement is less than a minute long, simply letting fans know “we’re back, we’re doing it, Skate’s happening”. Unfortunately that is all we know for now, indicating that the game is in very early development and won’t be ready for quite some time.
Skate Creative Director, Cuz Parry, did give credit to the fans though, saying “you commented this into existence”. Hopefully we’ll hear more next year, as more publishers begin to reveal their next-gen console games.
KitGuru Says: While this is a nice nod to the fans that have continued asking for more Skate over the last decade, very little information has been given so far. Presumably though, this is a full Skate 4, and not some silly mobile spin-off.
