In keeping with Activision’s habit of making sequel after sequel until truly no more blood can be obtained from the stone, it has been confirmed from IGN, by way of The Bird Man himself that a new godforsaken Tony Hawk game is in the works. The series has laid somewhat dormant as of late, with only Robomodo’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD coming out somewhat recently. This series went steadily downhill from Tony Hawk 4, and really bottoming out with the peripheral-based Tony Hawk Ride. The HD downloadable title was an attempt to capture some past glory by using various old levels and music, but it never felt quite right compared to the old greats, and didn’t seem to do especially well.
With no details as to who is making this game, or when it is coming out, everyone is left with more questions than answers. Although really, this series has been dead and buried for such a long time, it is hard to tell if anyone will even care when the details do surface. With Neversoft relegated to some neverending hell of making Call of Duty maps, I wouldn’t hold my breath for any board-based glorious resurrection.
