Skate 4’s developer will share ‘a little something’ on Monday
UPDATE: Developer diary released
Electronic Arts’ Full Circle studio says it will share “a little something” regarding its in-development Skate sequel on Monday.
In a message posted on social media this weekend, the Vancouver-based startup said it had been “working hard” on the new game, but warned fans not to expect any kind of reveal during the EA Play Live showcase on July 22.
“We know many of you were hoping to see more from us this week but we’re not ready for prime time just yet and we won’t be part of the EA Play Live show on Thursday,” the studio message reads.
UPDATE: Monday’s reveal was a short developer diary:
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: “It’s still early and we are committed to doing this thing right which means it’s gonna take some time. Our number one goal is not to blow it. For you, for us… for Skate.
“However, we are stoked to share a little something with you tomorrow.”
The next entry in the Skate series, which is yet to be given an official title, was revealed in June 2020 in a surprise announcement which broke EA’s Twitter engagement record.
The new Full Circle studio is headed up by former Xbox Live general manager Daniel McCulloch, who spent 15 years with Microsoft’s gaming business before departing in June 2020.
EA says Skate 4’s creative leadership, game director Deran Chung and series producer Chris Parry, were both central to the creation of the franchise and the development of the three original games, the last of which released in 2010.
Full Circle, which is “embracing a geo-diverse team and culture” and employs “team members around the globe”, is currently staffing up with nearly 20 open positions listed on its website.
