Seems like the developers are working on polishing the animation.
Skate 4 pre-alpha footage was leaked on Odysee. However, the video was deleted soon. Thankfully, GamesBeat's Editor Jeff Grubb managed to save it and share it on his Twitter.
The footage shows that the game is in early development as the models don't really have any details or textures.
According to Grubb, the developers from Full Circle are "trying to get the feel right" and working on the fluidity of the animation. Does it mean that the company is set on giving the developers sufficient time to work on the game? Time will tell.
