The video shows a skateboarder kickflipping over an old PC monitor, which reveals the word “Skate” as he leaves.

EA originally announced the return of the Skate series in 2020, with creative director Cuz Parry saying fans had “commented the return into existence”. “We’re back, we’re doing it. Skate’s happening,” Parry said during the announcement livestream. “We’ve secretly got together. It’s the beginning. The Skate evolution continues.”

Although Skate 4 does not yet have an official title or release date, fans eagerly await its return for the first time in over 10 years.
