Skate is coming to PC
You can already play some very popular and unique skateboarding games on PC, but one franchise that has been conspicuously absent from the platform is Skate. Well, that is now about to change with the next installment in Electronics Ar’s beloved series. The game’s official Twitter account of EA confirmed the PC release on Thursday in a tweet that features a clip from a skate vid.
A new Skate game, a follow-up to 2010’s Skate 3, was announced last summer. Since then, we have heard that new developer Full Circle — which counts series vets Deran Chung and Chris “Cuz” Parry among its ranks — will take point on the title. Until now, the main series has mainly stuck to Xbox and PlayStation platforms, though a spinoff (called Skate It) was released for the Nintendo DS, Wii, and iOS platforms.
It has been a very big year for skateboarding in general, with the sport making its Olympics debut in Tokyo this summer. Perhaps, EA is looking to capitalize on the mainstream attention with a multi-platform release for its stuttering series.
