Electronic Arts LogoElectronic Arts president Frank Gibeau has confirmed that the next installment in the Burnout series and a sequel for this year’s Skate were in the lineup for the fiscal year of 2009, which runs from April 2008 until March 2009.

Gibeau cited the significant dent Skate made in the credibility of Activision’s long-running Tony Hawk franchise as the reason for the sequel. As an aside, Gibeau addressed Mass Effect, stating,

“it will be an EA franchise for a long time”

This announcement coming despite BioWare previously calling Mass Effect a trilogy. This information, coming hot on the heels of the Spore date announcement, will undoubtedly put EA on the path for success in the coming year.
