Okay so here’s some good news, watch this video below and get excited about the upcoming SSX from EA Games.
It’s been a while since I really enjoyed a snowboarding game but this trailer now has m really excited for what’s to come.
And now for the bad news, the game has been delayed.
To all our SSX Fans,
I wanted to let you all know firsthand that we recently decided to take a couple of extra weeks to give our game the final bit of polish we think it deserves. This means that we won’t be shipping the game to you until Feb. 28 in North America and Mar. 2 in the rest of the world. We hope that given how long you have waited for SSX to come back, you won’t mind waiting just a little bit longer. J
Over the course of more than 10 years of making games I have not worked on a single project where our team did not wish, coming down the home stretch, that we could have just a bit more time. Time to do all the little things that may not be noticeable during the first hour or two playing the game, but are appreciated over the course of days, weeks, months and beyond.
SSX was one of the games that always took the time to do exactly that. There is a reason why Tricky and SSX3 are still among the highest rated games of all time, and it is because even playing them today they still stand the test of time. Our goal from Day 1 was to re-launch this amazing franchise with a new SSX game that could live up to that legacy.
We are incredibly proud of where we are today and extremely thankful for all the support that you, the community, have given us in helping to shape this game. We are making this game for you, and we want to make sure that you’ll love it.
Check out our latest video compilation of pure gameplay footage here to see how awesome the game is looking and playing!

That sucks and I’m always wary of games that suffer delays after announcing release dates, but let’s hope Todd can polish away all the bugs that they’ve found and we can have a great snowboarding experience when SSX finally does release.
