And you think he'd probably know.
After plummeting from critically acclaimed masterpiece to public whipping boy over the course of a decade, the Tony Hawk's series went on somewhat of a hiatus. It was probably the one-two nut punch of Tony Hawk: Ride and Tony Hawk: Shred that did it. Terrible peripheral. Terrible idea. Terrible game.
But now Tony Hawk himself has said that a new Tony Hawk's game is in development and I'm curiously curious. I am thinking to myself, 'it's time'. Time for a new Tony Hawk game, time for it to be good again.
Also -- it's been a goddamn long time since I've played a video game about skateboarding.
“We’re working on a game, we are working on a game, it's pretty cool.”
That's all Tony Hawk said on his Demolition Radio show. He also made reference to a body suit, which is a little worrying, but the takeaway is this: we will have a Tony Hawk game at some point down the road. I really, really hope it isn't terrible.
