After coming to terms with Star Wars not making an appearance at EA Play 2021, another prominent pawn has suddenly decided to take a backseat, adding salt to the already sour wound in our hearts.
The new and embellished Skate game, which long-term fans have been desperate to see for well over a decade now, won’t be joining the event roster, meaning a sneaky unveiling has been dashed in a heartbeat.
But, despite the abrupt call to skip the show, there is some good news to this, believe it or not. Of course, EA may have been quick to launch the showcase from the agenda, but the renowned publisher has made it clear that news surrounding the game will be arriving tomorrow. The frustrating part is that, unfortunately, we’re not entirely sure what it could be or where it’ll surface, though we’ll assume EA Skate on Twitter will likely be the first port of call.
“It’s still early and we are committed to doing this thing right which means it’s gonna take some time,” EA shared via a tweet this afternoon, confirming the no-show for EA Play 2021.

Skate is back – finally!
The Skate reboot came to light a year ago on the button, with a team of talented designers banding together to recreate that award-winning spark that forged the concrete jungle trilogy. Only now, with current-gen hardware to toy with, EA has all the tools to take the Skate empire to another level. But we’ll just have to see about that, of course. Whatever the case, fans are beyond thrilled to see the return of the extreme sports kingpin, and faith is definitely resting on EA’s shoulders to deliver an outstanding sequel.
You can follow the updates for Skate on the official EA Skate handle here. Or if you’re still banking on seeing the glorious skateboarding franchise at EA Play this year, then you can check in to the show on July 22. After today, however, you might want to put your eggs in another basket. We’ll be keeping you posted with tomorrow’s update, no matter how big or small the update.
Skate 3 launched back in 2010 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Since then, the series has reached cult classic status, with millions of gamers still investing time into the groundbreaking trilogy. You can take a look at the competitive side of Skate here.
