New Tony Hawk Console Game Coming in 2015
Activision confirms a new game for console and mobile, Tony Hawk's Shred Session "on hold indefinitely."
A new Tony Hawk game is coming to consoles in 2015, the pro skateboarder himself revealed via Twitter yesterday.
"I’m currently working with Activision on a console game for 2015 (along with a new mobile game)," Hawk said. "I think fans of THPS series will be hyped."
Hawk also said that the mobile game that was announced earlier this year, Tony Hawk's Shred Session, "has been put on hold indefinitely." An Activision representative later confirmed Hawk's statements with Polygon.
We don't know who's developing the new console game yet, but we know it won't be the developer that made the series famous, Neversoft, which Activision shut down as a separate entity and merged with Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward in July.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, a downloadable, HD re-release of content from the first two Pro Skater games, was released in 2012. At the time, developer Robomodo's CEO, Josh Tsui, suggested something bigger could eventually be made, saying, "The prospect of a fuller game is definitely on the table -- it's just a matter of when and how."
