The next entry in the Skate franchise is still far away, and developer Full Circle is well aware of that and how much fans want another game. A self-confessed preview version for the game launching today, provide details on Ice skating 4 and confirm that people outside the development studio have viewed the game.
The trailer revealed today mostly shows some of the game’s mo-caps in action, with developer Deran Chung cutting into the action to say “Truth is, it’s early. We are still working on it [Skate 4]. It’s not entirely clear when the development of the next entry in the Skate franchise begins. Ice skating 4 Originally announced at the EA Play event in 2020, but the game has fallen out of sight ever since. It should also be noted that Ice skating 4 won’t be around Battlefield 2042 and Apex Legends at this year’s EA Play event on July 22.

While we probably won’t see the next Skate game for a while, a select group of people already have that distinct privilege. Those people, a collection of content creators and influencers who are fans of the Skate franchise, watched the game in action and revealed some small details in the video. While the video stacks the voices on top of each other, you can choose from several key phrases, including “online session” and “open world.” So far, it looks like these two key features of the Skate franchise will return in Ice skating 4.
Another person then entered the video exclaiming “Yes, you can climb”, the first hint of a new feature coming to the game.
