An Electronic Arts community manager recently tweeted about Skate 4, fueling speculation that the company might be working on its long-dormant skateboarding series.
It’s not happening, at least not yet, EA has confirmed. During an earnings call today, EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that EA is “not presently making Skate 4.” He joked that this is a big disappointment for EA CFO Blake Jorgensen, who is apparently a fan of the series.
The Skate series has been dormant since 2010’s Skate 3 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. More recently, EA made a lot of people happy by adding the game to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility catalog.
EA hasn’t ruled out eventually making a new Skate game, but it doesn’t appear that it will happen anytime soon or ever.
In other skateboard video game news, Tony Hawk has confirmed that he’s thinking about making a new game–and it won’t be with Activision. There is nothing that connects Hawk’s new game to EA.
