We all thought the Tony Hawk series had died, or at least, I did. Although I have fond memories of the franchise, particularly of the original, Tony Hawk 3, and Tony Hawk Underground, the franchise has lost what made it great in recent years. Instead of doing manuals into crazy unrealistic but highly entertaining infinite multiplier combos, the latest installments seemed to focus more on cheap Jack-Ass style gags.
But after a fairly long hiatus, the big man himself has confirmed in an interview with Nelson Abalos of Pixalted Geeks that there are plans for future installments.
“We’re actually right in the middle of making a whole new plan right now,” Hawk said.
“We’re going to do something probably for next year, but I can’t give too much away, but definitely we’re going to make new games, yes.”
