- New Tony Hawk game underway?


After four years of no Tony Hawk games, Tony accidentally talks a bit too much on US radio.

In the past years Tony Hawk hasn't gotten a full fledged game since Activision pulled the plug due to the poor sales and reviews on the games, "Tony Hawk: Ride" and "Tony Hawk: Shred". Adding on the fact that Activision made a small arcade release of Tony Hawk HD, people were skeptic to believe a new series may have been underway.

We all are aware that Activision doesn't like leaking out information on their games, as many of us remember the whole Bungie and Activision partnership to put together Destiny. However Tony Hawk specifically stated this, "We're working on a game, we are working on a game, it's pretty cool!". After Tony stated that nothing happened until IGN managed to get a confirmation out of the publisher Activision.

"Activision can confirm that they have something in the works with Tony Hawk, more info is coming soon," was Activision's response.

It had been quite commonly known that Tony Hawk's video games series was on of the biggest franchises around from the Pro Skater series up Proving Ground. The key thing we'd like to point out is that the games stuck with the same Tony Hawk vibe and not picking any favorites but American Wasteland was probably the best one, (Yes I'm biased). Each year brought a new Tony Hawk sequel to the franchise until Tony Hawk: Ride and Tony Hawk: Shred changed the style of the game and brought poor reviews and low sales, as previously stated.

It's quite obvious that after two flops like that Activision will most definitely not take a turn down that road again, and thus brings us back to the upcoming Tony Hawk game. Many fans are interested which way they are planning to take this series, it has been commonly known that EA's Skate is one of the most popular ones out there and has set a high benchmark in what skateboarding game fans like. All we can do now is wait and see when more news on the game is released.
