New Tony Hawk game likely for 2012
Legendary skateboarder says fresh series entry "probably" coming sometime next year; developer/publisher not named.
In early February, Activision announced that it had put the Tony Hawk skateboarding series on hold, saying that no new franchise entry would arrive in 2011. However, the birdman will crash back onto the scene in 2012, if comments from Hawk himself prove accurate.
In an interview with PixelatedGeek, Hawk was queried as to whether or not gamers can expect more Tony Hawk games in the future. He responded, "We're going to do something probably for next year but I can't give too much away." Activision officials have said they still see potential in the franchise, saying in December that Tony Hawk has the staying power of Michael Jordan.
The most recent Tony Hawk game--Tony Hawk: Shred--was developed by independent studio Robomodo and sold under 3,000 units in its first week. It was the second game, following Tony Hawk: Ride, to use the much-maligned skateboarding peripheral.
