Skate 2 coming this January

Ben Parfitt
The sequel to EA’s successful new skateboarding IP Skate is set to be released in January 2009, according to IGN.

The site reports: “Today we received boxed retail copies of Mirror's Edge in the office. Our full review of the game is embargoed for a couple weeks, but that didn't stop us from rifling through the included manual and an interesting sell sheet. Said sheet has an ad for Need for Speed Undercover on one side, and Skate 2 on the other.

“In the bottom-left corner of the Skate 2 ad is a little tag that not so subtly says ‘In Stores January 2009’. It doesn't get any more official than that. We talked to EA about the matter, and the timing is indeed set, though we don't have a specific date as of yet.”

Skate arrived to much critical celebration last year, averaging 86 per cent on Metacritic – quite some way ahead of Activision’s competing Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground, which averaged 72 per cent.
