Rumor has it that a Skate 4 reveal is coming soon as the game has been in playtesting for months. That’s according to reliable EA Insider Tom Henderson, who reported for Exputer that Skate 4 is “well into” the quality assurance phase and can be found in the Origin’s API under the code name “Project Dingo.”
Skate 4 reveal was Originally expected at canceled EA Play
First announced two years ago, Skate 4 has been kept tightly under wraps. After revealing that it was Reviving the series, EA announced a new studio called Full Circle, dedicated to the franchise. In July 2021, the Publisher said that Skate 4 won’t make an appearance at EA Play because it’s “still early and we’re committed to doing this thing right, which means it’s gonna take some time.” “Our number one goal is not to blow it,” EA said. “For you, for us… for Skate.” Fans expected something at this year’s EA Play, which ended up being canceled in favor of showing games individually.
Henderson originally said in his report that Skate 4 has just entered playtesting but later corrected his information, adding that it’s been in playtesting for months. Fellow Insider and VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb has backed up Henderson’s report, mentioning in his latest GamesBeat Decides podcast that “something was about to happen on that game” and “we’ll probably hear more about that game pretty soon.”

Multiple people have since reached out and have said that playtesting has been going on for months!
Maybe the origin API indicates something more could be happening? https://t.co/kZLHb0Pswr
