Imagine Announcing Skate 4 Right After Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater
Just last month, it was revealed that fans were finally getting something that has been requested for a very, very long time. Both Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are receiving the remastered treatment in the form of a bundle of joy set to arrive later this year for all to enjoy. It may have been over a month ago, but fans are still feeling the hype. What I am saying is: Can you imagine that we finally got that reveal, and then EA comes in and announces Skate 4?
Of course, the diehard Skate fans have been requesting another installment for no short amount of time (about 10 years at this point), almost to where it had essentially become a meme not unlike Half-Life 3 or even Knack, which still has some time to go before it truly becomes immortalized. Another E3 and EA Play presentation arrives, another opportunity for a Skate 4 announcement gets pushed aside. Year after year of nothing from EA, but then Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 remastered get revealed, and it’s off to the races.

It’s not like the fans have been adamant about Skate 4 for the better part of the past decade or anything, so it is surely them who is at the very core of why the highly-requested game is finally happening. Then again, competition does breed innovation, so we are sure to get yet another skating game that will likely be similar to a previous installment, but only incrementally better, not unlike nearly every sports game ever made. Who knows, they just might pull off something truly remarkable.
In the video above, Skate game director Daran Chung mentioned how they’ve been waiting years to “make the right game at the right time with the right idea,” which sounds an awful lot like the news of the grandest of all skating games getting a remastered bundle put a little fire in their hearts. That, or maybe the fire isn’t so vibrant in the bank account and the time to strike is now; it just so happens to be a month after Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater remastered is revealed. Imagine that.
The devs note how it is still early in the process for Skate 4, which means we likely won’t see it until 2022-23, maybe later. However, in the meantime, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Remastered is set to arrive on September 4th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
