Skating used to be cool. It was the thing for gaming, with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and then Underground series proving quite popular. After that, though, the games dwindled and sales, and despite Skate’s best attempts to reinvigorate the genre, even that became stale after a couple of revisits.
The last console Tony Hawk title to release was a HD remix of original Pro Skater levels, and although a mobile game was meant to release, named Shred Session, that had been postponed indefinitely.
I’m currently working with Activision on a console game for 2015 (along with a new mobile game). I think fans of THPS series will be hyped.

Now, Tony Hawk has announced (as you can see in the tweet above) that he’s working with Activision to develop a new console game for next year. Hopefully that means PS4 and Xbox One, and the teaser that fans of Pro Skater will be hyped is quite exciting indeed.
We’ll hopefully find out more soon.
