More than 2 years ago, the attempt to revive the popularity of skateboarding games failed after the release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. Since then, the famous skateboarder who gives his name to the games and Activision kept silent, but today it was confirmed that the distribution company and the historical professional no longer maintains a working relationship with the company.
After some fans expressed their desire to know something about the present and future of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series on social networks, the same Tony Hawk responded and gave bad news to the fans because he said he no longer has any relationship with Activision.
As some of the publications sought to know the possibility that in the future there would be some remastered version of the titles that made the franchise great, Tony Hawk mentioned that the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater license was left to Activision and he cannot do anything about it, but if he had the opportunity to deliver remastered games to the fans, he would definitely do it.
In this way, everything indicates that the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise will remain silent for a long time and there will be no more than reliving on our consoles and games, from previous generations, the glories of some of the best skateboarding games that have existed.
