Did you grow up playing the likes of Tony Hawks Pro Skater on the PS1? If so, the franchise probably remains close to your heart, regardless of the fact that recent Tony Hawk titles may not have performed so well.
With the PS4 and Xbox One consoles now firmly up and running with established user bases, the anticipation for a next-gen skateboard game is starting to heat up.

We didn’t hear any concrete whispers in an official capacity last year, but this week we do have some massive news to share with you. Tony Hawk himself has let slip in a recent interview that another game is on the way and we’re guessing that it will be headed straight for PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
Following on from Tony Hawk’s comments, Activision has since come out and confirmed that they are working with the Birdman on a new title and that more details will be coming ‘soon’.

The last game out was Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD and it was actually a very decent game and a refreshing nostalgia trip down memory lane for those that played the originals – especially with parts of the original soundtrack in tact.
Given that Activision has yet to announce anything on the game, what would you be hoping to see? We can already see feedback on social media, from fans who would actually like to see EA make Skate 4 first, in preference to Tony Hawk.
If Tony Hawk PS4 can be anything like the originals with next-gen graphics, then you can bet that it will still draw in massive interest – especially if they bring back the team at Neversoft to develop it.
Ok EA, Activision just confirmed a new Tony Hawk game in development. This is where you announce Skate 4.

As for Skate 4, EA has not given any hints whatsoever that a new game is on the horizon. However, with a new Tony Hawk’s game definitely on the way, this may well force EA to change their plans in 2014 so it’s very exciting for fans we would say.
If you are a big skateboard game fan, get in touch with us. What game would you rather see on PS4 or Xbox One, Skate 4 or Tony Hawks? We’ll look forward to your feedback on this, but in the meantime we’re going on Spotify to listen to the THPS2 soundtrack – good times.
