EA’s Skate is set for a revival as a mobile game.
As reported by The Nine Club, Jason Dill was approached by EA about the game.
“I got a call from the EA people about 10 months ago, and they said, ‘Hey, we want to talk about the Skate game’. I said that’s fine. [They] said, basically, ‘We want to do a mobile version of Skate 3‘. I wrote back, and I said, ‘What else?’ She wrote back, ‘No, that’s it’.
I wrote back, ‘Hey, no big deal, but nobody wants your stupid mobile version of Skate 3. Make Skate fucking 4 already, cuz just, like, do it. Just make the game and participate again. You can’t level it up to the same numbers you get on other games, you do it for a cultural thing that pays you back later – and that’s how corporations can work if they play their cards right.
And she wrote back to me and said, basically, ‘No. We’re not going to do that’. So, I wrote her back, and I said, ‘Well, have a lot of luck on Need For Speed 29. I won’t be in your stupid mobile game […] I think it’s fucking dumb.”
So, by the sounds of things, EA wants to take advantage of the ever-booming mobile gaming market. However, would – or even, could – a mobile version of Skate work? Let us know how you feel about EA’s potential remake in the comments section down below.
