Skate 4 dreams are ruined as EA abandons Skate trademark

Skate 4 is looking less likely than ever, as EA abandons trademark once again

Skate 4 is looking less likely than ever, as EA abandons trademark once again

That's why it seemed plausible that EA was just letting Skate 4 incubate for a good, long while before release. The latest activity on a newly found filing reads "REGISTERED AND RENEWED (FIRST RENEWAL - 10 YRS)".

Although they've always had a vocal fanbase, and reviewed very well, the Skate games have never been particularly successful for EA, which is presumably why they've abandoned the rights to the trademark.

EA re-filed ownership for the IP in February of past year, which sent the internet into a frenzy. Well, they're not going to include Skate or its sequels, as the publisher gives up ownership of the name.

Electronic Arts has abandoned its trademark for Skate, which is not the best of news for those hoping for the return of the skateboarding series that hasn't had a new entry since 2010's Skate 3.

A report on GamesRadar earlier today pointed toward a lapsed trademark filing for Skate, leaving many of us sad that a Skate 4 may not be in our future. Sadly, this registration was quietly abandoned in August. It's possible that someone will come in and swoop up the trademark while it's available. We have reached out to EA for comment. This is a huge disappointment for fans like Tyler the Creator, who have been waiting for almost a decade for a new game in the franchise. Over the last few years, fans have berated and pleaded with the company to make a follow up to the ever-popular Skate 3, but unfortunately, it seems to have fallen on deaf ears. The TA community rating echoes that score with a 3.93.
