Skate 2 made backwards compatible, EA immediately announces server closure

By Sean Carey,
More than 70 classic Xbox games were made backwards compatible last night, including the superb Skate 2. However, while players were gearing up to kickflip back into the game, EA somewhat spoiled the party by announcing that Skate 2's servers will close next month.

In a rather strange couple of tweets, EA first celebrated the good news of Skate 2's backwards compatibility before immediately giving players the bad news and announcing that it will be turning off the game's servers on December 10th, 2021. The publisher says this was "not an easy decision and not something we take lightly."

On the achievement front, the game already has six discontinued achievements, and it looks like another five will be discontinued after the server closure, so if you need these, grab them while you still can.

Skate 2's servers will close on December 10th, 2021.

If you missed it, here is the full list of new games that were made backwards compatible.

Thanks to Rockin Gamer752 for the heads-up.
