Delayed Last-Gen Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 to Release This Week

But Activision confirms there are no existing plans to ship on Xbox 360 and PS3 in the UK.


Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, the widely panned skateboarding sim that shipped in late September carrying an unedifying collection of bugs and glitches, is due for its last-gen release on Tuesday.

However, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game are, for now, only shipping across North America. An Activision spokesperson confirmed to Eurogamer that there are currently no plans to ship the last-gen version across the UK.

Upon release across PS4 and Xbox One, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 was widely criticised for its numerous bugs and lack of ambition. GameSpot's THPS5 review described the game as "difficult to enjoy." Commercially the game appears to have struggled in the UK, not making it into the top ten upon release, and not featuring prominently in the US sales charts compiled by NPD.

A patch weighing 7.8 GB was deployed to fix some of the game's numerous glitches. About a month after release, Activision announced the last-gen versions would be delayed.
