/// Tony Hawk is Working on a New Game, and Not With Activision!
The most recent Tony Hawk game, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5, was very poorly received. The commercial response was as tepid as the game’s critical one, so it’d be safe to assume we’re not getting any more Pro Skater games for a while.
However, we may be wrong, as the man himself recently confirmed there could be something in the works, and it won’t even come from series publisher Activision.
“Not from Activision. I’m potentially working on something but it’s so early I couldn’t talk about it,” Tony Hawk told Jenkem Magazine.
