Yes, it looks like good old Tony Hawk is about to return to our screens. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was a really, really strong IP two decades ago. A lot of games were released under this license on many systems (PSX, PS2, GameCube, Game Boy, Xbox Systems, etc…) with good reviews. But if there was one thing that stood out in these games it was their soundtracks: punk, punk rock and many famous bands were in them.
Now, after a couple of years since the last game (iOS/Android) it seems that a new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video game is about to be announced. At least if we listen to ‘The Death Set‘ tweet where they confirmed that they licensed five songs for a new Tony Hawk game. The Death Set, for those who don’t know, it’s an Australian experimental punk band.
The tweet was deleted a few hours later:
New Tony Hawk Pro Skater game inbound!
Keeping hopes low after the long, long row of abysmal games since Tony Hawk’s RIDE.
But this also seems like a major NDA breach. pic.twitter.com/gGUiNZL6i8

Stay tuned. Hope this time is a console game.
