The new studio is called Full Circle and is based out of Vancouver. Here’s the info shared from the studio’s new landing page on EA’s website:
Full Circle is a studio based in Vancouver, with team members around the globe, embracing a geo-diverse team and culture.
We’re all about having fun and making great games that people want to play with their friends.
We’re working on the next evolution of Skate, and set to deliver an experience that will embrace and build upon everything our community found special about the previous games.
This is definitely good news! Given how successful the latest Tony Hawk game has been, it seems the resurgence of the skate genre is well underway.
The last mainline entry in the franchise was Skate 3, released back in 2009 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
