Electronic Arts has officially lifted the lid on the third installment in the Skate franchise this afternoon, confirming that the sequel will ship for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in May 2010.
The game's senior producer, Jason DeLong, commented: “The social and community aspects of the SKATE franchise are something we’ve always embraced, but we’ve never done anything to the scale you’re going to see in SKATE 3.”
“We’re giving gamers a very unique experience by providing them with the tools they need to build their ultimate team or to create a team comprised entirely of their online friends. From there, it’s all about proving yourself – teaming up, and throwing down.”

We’ll have more on Skate 3 as it breaks.
