The last major Skate game, Skate 3, came out in 2010, and this marks 10 years since its release. As you can guess by the name, Skate is a skateboarding game set in an open world environment. The series set itself apart from the Tony Hawk series of games by being more realistic, whereas Tony Hawk’s Underground and Pro Skater were more arcadey.
The developers did not announce a release date and no gameplay was shown. It stands within reason that it will likely come to next-gen consoles.
