New Tony Hawk Game in Development


The Tony Hawk games have not seen a whole lot of excitement in the past several years. Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam was a little off the deep end and Tony Hawk: Ride was played on a fake skateboard (ugh). Those games had little to no traction with the core audience that praised the original Tony Hawk games (1-4). Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, released back in 2012, was a well-deserved return to the franchise’s roots with a fresh coat of paint. Let’s hope that this new Tony Hawk game that is in development is a return to the favorite and familiar formula and not some new take on the series.

Activision released a statement to Polygon saying: “Activision can confirm that they have something in the works with Tony Hawk, more info is coming soon.”

Here’s to hoping that the next one is a reason to get back to ludicrous special moves, unrealistic and insane combos and collecting hidden tapes.

I don’t know about you, but I can still collect S-K-A-T-E in THPS1 with my eyes closed. Keep coming back to Random Havok for more information as soon as it becomes available.
