Its been over a decade since the classic skateboarding games were last heard of. Namely Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and the Skate franchise. The games were an instant hit but over time their popularity seemed to be on the decline with not much innovation being brought about in comparison to other genres.
However, 2020 seems to be the year for the skateboarding genre to make a comeback. Previously we were showcased the full-fledged remaster of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2. The games are set to make their debut later this year. But it turns out that the folks over at EA are on their way to make an additional Skate game.
Kept secret until now the team behind the classic franchise got together and revealed in a short video tweet that they’ve been waiting for the perfect moment and the right time to make their way back into the consumer market. While little to no information was given about the game itself since it’s still in its very early stages.
Fans couldn’t have been happier. Having not one but two of their favourite skateboard franchises making their way back in all-out current generation style is something enthusiasts been waiting for long. Moreover, the nostalgia factor would play a huge role for many.
All in all, Skate is back! and both the devs and the fans couldn’t have been happier. A surprising reveal for sure but a welcome one.
