Is Skate back in Development? What EA Revealed in it’s Event?
10 years after Skate 3, EA is reuniting core members of the original EA Black Box team to create the popular series’ still-untitled.
In 2007, Skate emerged as the first real challenger to the dominant supremacy of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series. It was undoubtedly the first skateboarding game not to try to imitate the extreme sports series of Activision and Neversoft. It was lauded as such for adding a new viewpoint to a genre that was starting to reveal its age and the gaps in its armor.
With an emphasis on realism and gameplay focused on mechanics, the game opened up a loyal follow-up to crazed fans. This popularity led to a sequel in 2009. The series was soon abandoned after the launch of Skate 3 in 2010.
