Cuz Parry and Deran Chung made a surprise appearance during today’s EA Play Live presentation, and they told us what fans have been demanding in Instagram comments for years is finally coming. A new Skate game has been announced, and that is literally all we know about it so far. Parry and Chung noted that this project is going to take a while, and seemed to imply getting this next Skate project greenlit was no easy task. Check out the announcement from Electronic Arts here:

We last saw the series with Skate 3, which launched for previous-gen platforms back in 2010. The Skate series is known for its unique control scheme, and more sim-like gameplay style that had a big learning curve, but was praised for being technically impressive.

The original EA division that created the series, Black Box, is no longer a distinct entity, having been absorbed into EA in various forms after Need for Speed: World. With the studio effectively closed, we don’t know what the team situation on this new Skate is. But like we mentioned earlier, the only detail so far is that a new Skate exists. We do know the Skate fanbase is on fire right now, and Cuz Parry is absolutely stoked too.

Lucas writes about video games a lot. Sometimes he plays them. Every now and then he enjoys one. To get on his good side, say nice things about Dragon Quest and Musou. Never mention the Devil May Cry reboot in his presence. Backed Bloodstained on Kickstarter but all his opinions on it are correct regardless.
