Is Skate 2 coming to Game Pass / EA Play? Presumably it should do, once EA have their money after it was announced to be backwards compatible. Do any duders have any knowledge?

I've been searching all over the web for info on this. I would appreciate it if anyone knows anything.

All I can find is the story that they're shutting down the online servers.

I'll buy it at some point, but it isn't in the sale.

It’s backwards compatible w XB1, XB1X, and XSX but they did not get the rights to sell the game digitally. Only way to play it is to buy a physical copy and pop it in to the disc tray.

I do not expect this game to be part of the EA Play catalog, and consequently, game pass.

@liquiddragon: That's annoying, but thanks for letting me know.

Follow up question. I own an Xbox Series S (no disk tray) but still have my Launch Xbox One kicking around. Can I put the disk in that and have the rights transfer to the series S?

@topcat88: No. The disc serves as authentication. You must have the disc in the system while playing. The physical disc entitles you to play the game, you can't not convert your physical entitlement to a digital one. The XSS can not play Skate 2.

I take shutting down the servers to be a pretty good indication EA aren't thinking about the game anymore.

Since they don't want to support it, emulate it or wait for the new one.

If that is true, this will be great for skateboarding fans to play!
