Skate (stylized as skate.) is a series of skateboarding video games developed by former EA subsidiary EA Black Box. First released in 2007, the series received notoriety for its glitches that were especially present in its third installment, along with simultaneously gaining a cult following. In 2020, a decade after the series' last installment, a new game in the series was announced.
The first game in the series was released in September 2007 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and developed by the now-defunct EA Black Box. This game introduced the players to the "flick it" control system, where the player uses their analog stick to perform tricks. The game would receive a spinoff, Skate It for the Wii, Nintendo DS, and iOS devices, and two mainline sequels, Skate 2 and Skate 3. The latter would be the final game in the series developed by the company as EA Black Box would eventually be shut down in 2013.

On June 18th 2020, at the end of EA Play Live, EA announced that Skate will be returning, though did not reveal the game's official title. The announcement was made by game director Deran Chung and creative director Chris “Cuz” Parry, both of whom had worked on the series in the past.

The announcement was seen by some as the company's response to the upcoming Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 remaster from Activision.
