Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has replied to an eager gamer asking when Skate 3 would come to the Xbox One in the form of backwards compatibility saying that Microsoft know that it is a key game and that they are eagerly working on it, but do not have a date in mind.
@DevinSeanBean We know its a key game and are on it. I'm confident in getting it out to XB1 customers, just can't give you a date yet, sorry
