If you were hoping the newly announced Tony Hawk game would be coming to consoles like the Xbox One or PlayStation 4, sorry, you're out of luck. The legendary skateboarder himself has confirmed in an interview with Bloomberg that the new project is coming exclusively to mobiles.
"We're working on a mobile game now," Hawk said about his partnership with Activision for the new project. "We're working on a game for mobile devices this year."
Hawk reiterated that he's enthusiastic about bringing the new Tony Hawk game to mobile because that's where people today are spending so much of their time.
"We've never gone exclusively that direction yet so I'm excited because, with the amount of time people are spending on their phones and their tablets playing games, we've never had our own game in that space so I'm excited to provide one finally," he said.
The new Tony Hawk game for mobiles won't be the first game in the series for smartphones and tablets, as a port of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is available right now on iTunes for $2. But from the way Hawk described the new game, it sounds like it's an original title, not a port of a previous game.
Activision has yet to formally announce the new Tony Hawk game, but the publisher told GameSpot earlier this month that it will have more to share on the subject soon.
The most recent game in the series was 2012's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, which was developed by Robomodo and launched for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It's unclear which developer is behind the upcoming Tony Hawk game for mobiles.
