Those who hope in the development of Skate 4 will have to store in a drawer of their expectations, given that Electronic Arts has decided to abandon the trademark, at least for now.
According to the UPTO, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the trademark was recovered on the 16th of February 2018. However, from August 1, 2019, the company would have abandoned him. A trademark can be considered abandoned when the applicant refuses to respond to the correspondence to the USPTO.
Justia is the web page dedicated to the registration of trademarks and in the search field, Skate 4 you can see the different movements and histories of the attempts made to contact Electronic Arts about it. By the time the players had hoped in the fourth chapter, but in 2017, the company had insisted that was not provided for its development.
If this is to put the word end you definitely do not know him, but the lack of want to renew the trademark, it is thought that the franchise is dead and buried.
