A Tony Hawk's Pro Skater remake is rumored to be in the works according to a journalist and at least one professional skater.
A few days ago, Sabi — a journalist for Spiel Times and Nintendo Soup — had a rather interesting comment to make on Twitter.
"So about that Activision remake that had some work done I mentioned a week or two ago..." a tweet stated, "Sure hope you like skating[.]" This was followed up by a second tweet that was slightly less mysterious and far more straightforward.
"Explanation of what I shared in my server:," began a second tweet chain. "An Activision contact told me a week or so ago about how Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 had demos/prototypes remade. They went around internally. I didn't share before as I wasnt sure if they were being remade as full games, or just a test[.] I shared this info with just a few people, such as @GenosPapa. Interestingly, Liam Robertson just mentioned this info in his podcast, seemingly corroborating the info. Nobody seems to know if both games are being fully remade, or if it's just a test for something else."
A Pro Skater Reportedly Talks About a Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Remake
Adding fuel to the fire is reported comments from professional skater Lizzie Armanto. According to GamesRadar, she had mentioned in an episode of The Nine Club podcast that there was another game coming out and that she would be in that one, too. (Ms. Armanto previously appeared in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5.) Interestingly, her commentary has subsequently been excised from the podcast episode.
So, are we getting a new Tony Hawk's Pro Skater or a Tony Hawk's Pro Skater remake? We have a lot of hearsay but very little firm evidence for now. Though the rumors are piling up, take them with a grain of salt as always.
