Is a new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater console game underway?
The Tony Hawk skateboarding games used to skate to the top of the charts, thanks to their tight controls, unique (for the time) gameplay, and ability to make you feel like the titular pro skater himself as he pulled off insane tricks on a half pipe. Then the bottom fell out of the series, and the games just stopped coming out.
At Sony’s press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show last week, Mr. Hawk himself took the stage to tease an upcoming title. “New console game this year on the PlayStation 4,” he said. “I’ll give you a hint: It has TH in it.” There’s still no word on what the game will be like, when in 2015 it will come out, or if it will be released for platforms other than the PS4. But fans of skating games can rest assured that a new Tony Hawk game is in the works.
