EA’s Skate will be coming to Steam

EA is bringing back Skate this year, with plans to re-launch the series as a free-to-play game. While the game was first announced for consoles, it is also coming to PC and better yet, it will be on Steam. 

Skate doesn't have an exact release date yet but EA has announced plans to conduct lots of playtests this year, which fans will be able to sign up to participate in. While this does not confirm a specific release date, it does provide a possible timeline for the game's launch. Fans speculate that the Skate revival may arrive in late 2024 or early 2025 once console testing is complete.

The new Skate game promises to be the most accessible and ambitious entry in the series. Insider Gaming recently stated that Skate would undergo a six-week PC playtest via the EA app starting February 6th. While the playtest is subject to an NDA, leaks may still occur in the following weeks.

There have already been several leaks, including a portfolio of artwork that leaked in July 2023 and a rebuilt version of the entire skate map that leaked in September 2023. Despite these setbacks, the playtests and Steam announcement suggest that the game's launch is still on track.
