Skate 4 release date after THPS5 nightmare

By Alan Ng - Oct 2, 2015

After the terrible launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 which has been ripped apart by critics and gamers, we can unsurprisingly see an overwhelming demand for EA to step up and finally confirm a Skate 4 release date.

If you haven’t heard, THPS5 has launched with some quite unforgiving bugs – bugs which Activision states are now being addressed by developers Robomodo.

In the meantime though, we have noticed the increased talk on Skate 4 with many gamers now pleading with EA to launch Skate 4 after being very disappointed with THPS5 which cost the full $60 to buy.


So far, EA has not given any hints whatsoever that Skate 4 is on the way next year or the year after. It’s surprising since you would think that EA would want to cash-in on the demand and there certainly seems to be a massive demand for Skate 4 right now – even well before THPS5 was announced.

After seeing the poor review scores for that game, fans are only going to want Skate 4 even more and so now seems the perfect time for EA to make that decision.

We can see that it would be an instant purchase for many fans, with Skate regarded as the number one skate-boarding series in many eyes.

Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement before the end of the year – do you want EA to make this happen? They need to see the demand, so make your voices heard below.

    I don’t even play video games really anymore. But if they released skate 4 I would go buy a brand new Xbox one or ps4 to play just that game. Please I would like to see this before I die.

    Hurry up and do it ! The world is waiting and full of both skaters and those that just love the game, itching for a taste of skate 4

    I’ve been living in south lake Tahoe for about 9 years now and it’s a very snowboard skateboard friendly town! Almost every person I know loves the skate series and would love to see a new one released as well as a realistic snowboard game with the same mechanics as the skate series!!! I feel both games could prosper so much given the fact that snowboarding is in the Olympics now and skateboarding IS STILL really popular if not more then I can remember.. If common sense doesn’t hit EA in the head then they could miss out on a really good opportunity for both these games!

    Step it up EA !
    We will be waiting in the meantime

      pretty sure there is a game called “Snow” for skiing and snowboarding?

    Please please please please please make this happen EA. I’ve been waiting for this to be announced for the last 5 years! Now is the perfect time with THPS5 wetting people’s apitite for a next gen and failing miserably. I’ve had many discussions with friends about how badly this is needed over the years.
