Electronic Arts have announced the creation of a new studio, Full Circle, which will work on the upcoming EA Skate video game.
On January 17, 2021, EA announced the creation of an all-new development team based in Vancouver. The new studio, Full Circle, will be responsible for developing the much-anticipated new installment in the popular EA Skate franchise.
The new development team will be led by former Head of Xbox Live at Microsoft, Daniel McCulloch. “The fans wished Skate back into existence and we want them involved in the process from development to game launch and beyond. We want them to feel like they are a part of Full Circle,” McCulloch, the GM of Full Circle, said in a press release.
Full Circle is looking for community input on the next title in the beloved franchise. They’re also hiring developers who are passionate about the game they’re creating. “We’re all about having fun and making great games that people want to play with their friends. And, we’re looking for more developers to help us build compelling worlds for players to explore,” said McCulloch.
It’s been more than ten years since the last release of the Skate franchise. The original game helped to revolutionize skateboarding video games, transitioning the genre from the arcade frenzy of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater to a more realistic simulation; similar to other sports games like Madden and FIFA.
Skater XL, released in 2020, is the only modern competition in the space. It will be interesting to see what new ideas EA and Full Circle bring to the table.
Fans have been waiting for a Skate 4 for over a decade. The announcement of Full Circle proves that EA is finally giving the community what they want.
It will likely be a long time before we hear any more news about the upcoming EA Skate game, with Full Circle still in the hiring process. Still, it’s good to know that the game will soon be in development.
When we do hear more, you’ll be the first to know. This game is sure to be one of the most anticipated titles ever to hit the sports video game genre.
