Update: An Activision spokesperson confirmed to IGN that the series’ long publisher is indeed collaborating with Tony Hawk on a new game.
“Activision can confirm that they have something in the works with Tony Hawk, more info is coming soon,” reads the statement provided to IGN.
Original Story: A new Tony Hawk game is in the works, IGN reports.
Talking on his Sirius XM show Demolition Radio, Hawk repeatedly said “We’re working on a game, we’re working on a game, it’s pretty cool.” Meanwhile, his co-host mention how there’s “a whole suit” Hawk has to put on, suggesting that the title will employ motion capture during development.
The last few Tony Hawk games—Ride, Shred, and Pro Skater HD—were all handled by Robomodo, a studio formed in 2008 by former Midway Games employees. Ignoring the HD rerelease of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, it’s been going on four years since last round of skateboarding games—including Tony Hawk: Shred and Skate 3—in 2010.
