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.

In May, Hawk participated in a Reddit AMA, where he said "There is a CHANCE of something in the future for newer consoles."

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."

Even just the thought of a next-gen Skate game hypes me more than this news.

I really hope that the new game will be good, but it's been so long since we've had a 5 star Tony Hawk game. Ever since last gen, the series has been getting worse and worse, and especially more focused on gimmicks like that skateboard accessory that was apparently about as useful as the Power Glove. Tony Hawk HD was a very barebones remake, the graphics were nice, but there were no graphics options on the PC version, there were no extras, the soundtrack was half of the original and half new, but if you're like me and you hate pop punk, then you're SOL.


What I'd like would be a return to the series roots, or even something like (I forget which game it was) where they had the sandbox mode, but they also had classic mode. Don't rely on cheap gimmicks. As for the music, I would love see that good variety the series had, like there was metal, alt rock, punk rock, hardcore punk, pop punk, hip hop, classic rock, and even some Johnny Cash. Get the soundtrack broad enough for the tastes of anyone, of course custom soundtracks always work too. Just make a fun game.

As long as they it doesn't use the Tony Hawk Ride skateboard I probably will buy it. Then again only games I have in the series is Tony Hawk's Pro Skater & Pro Skater HD, and Tony Hawk's Underground. Also Have Sk8tland on the Nintendo DS.

Go back to its roots... Make great game play, bigger parks, lots of hidden stuff and things to find. Make it fun like 1,2,3,4 all rolled up in one. Do not put morons in the game. Classic riders, new and legends. Do not make it all about rails. Make it dificult to pull off the hardest moves like the 900. Make online with other riders in a big city. And in that map we can go play in smaller levels and some classics. Make tournaments, races, highest scores, biggest combo... You can do it. All great series fall apart when they over milk it or change the formula too much and pee off the true fans. Good Luck. I feel it can be great, just don't add stupid stuff like ssx did in the new one which ruined 30% of the game.

<< LINK REMOVED >> As I was reading this I was thinking that this stuff isn't as big in pop culture as it was in the past. Maybe that means the game has a smaller potential audience, which could mean it will be designed for that smaller audience like you.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Lol you still care about Guitar Hero? Why not just buy a real guitar and start taking lessons? You would be picking up a new interest (which is always good) and doing something productive and beneficial at the same time! (two birds, one stone)

Hell yeah. I loved thps 2 and thug 2. Imagine what they could do on current consoles. A huge open world packed full of unique challenges and crazy characters. Hope they keep the original controls, they were just so intuitive. The perfect example of easy to learn, hard to master. Oh and horse mode again please.

@BludshedX @TheExxorcist I could've sworn that song was from THUG... Maybe I got the soundtracks confused since I played THUG the most out of all those games.

About time to bring back a TH game, I missed the golden days of THPS Series one of the best skateboard games ever made (my opinion). The last TH game that was close to THPS was THUG series and THAW but nothing can top THPS.

So what console gen???? if it's last gen the chances of me buying is 0.0% not gonna happen.....

Honestly if this was any publisher outside of EA and Craptivision I'd jump on it....or at least be interested....

I won't waste my time on Craptivision trash and EhAck had their chance with Skate which was terrible....I'd just like to go back to the good old days, great music, combo heavy and technical gameplay but easy to actually play....not this ooh it has to be realistic and resemble the complexity of real skating....I'm not a skateboarder and I don't think like that, so I don't relate to the gameplay......

Why would they release a brand new Tony Hawk game exclusively for the last gen when the last gen is basically almost over? I am predicting, however, that it will be available for both current gen and last gen.

Tony Hawk games have been crap ever since THUG2, which came out a decade ago... They really need to let this franchise die.

Ah, yes, the comments section of a gaming website, where you will find overly pessimistic people calling for the end of an excellent franchise for no good reason.

Personally, I believe that Project 8 and American Wasteland were pretty good games, and I think many more people would agree. Just because Proving Ground wasn't that great does not mean they should completely give up on the franchise. Shred was garbage, yes, but it was a SPINOFF and made by a completely different developer.


You don't have to give this series another chance, but I will.

@deadeternityx @Simulator_Shock "Personally, I believe that Project 8 and American Wasteland were pretty good games"

Seriously? Project 8 on PS2 was the most pathetic excuse for a Tony Hawk game I ever played.


If Activision can actually make Tony Hawk games relevant again than by all means I'm down for another shred session, but if they continue pumping out mediocre crap like the last few games have been, than I'm done with that franchise forever.

ITT EA's Skate was a great alternative to skateboarding games considering that game came out right in tandem when Tony Hawk games started going downhill (no pun intended).

So excuse me for being "overly pessimistic" but I am not impressed with the idea of a new Tony Hawk game, considering how lame those games have gotten in recent years, not to mention the original developer NeverSoft is gone now.

Why would you play the PS2 version? The Xbox 360 version is where it's at.

@deadeternityx Most likely because I only had a PS2 at the time? I remember it being one of the very last PS2 games I rented, for that matter. I got my Xbox 360 around 8-9 months after it came out, but I didn't bother playing it until '07 when Lost Planet and BioShock came out, good times.
