My dear readers, I have disappointing news to report. Remember last week when I reported that a new Tony Hawk game was in development? It looks like I incorrectly got you excited for about the possibility of a new full fledged game in the vein of Tony Hawk Pro Skater or Underground, according to Hawk himself. Hawk sat down and spoke with Bloomberg today, talking about how he helped make skating as main stream as it is.
Hawk went on to confirm that a new game was in development with Activision, but it is coming to mobile devices. “We’re working on a mobile game now. We’re working on a game for mobile devices this year. We’ve never gone exclusively in that direction yet so I’m excited because, with the amount of time people are spending on their phones and their tablets playing games, we’ve never had our own game in that space so I’m excited to provide one finally.”
No timetable was given on the release, but Activision previously said we would learn about the new Hawk title soon. Do you plan on giving Tony Hawk on mobile a shot? Are you as disappointed by this announcement as I am? Let me know in the comments below!
