Tony Hawk “no longer working” with Activision on Pro Skater

Those hoping for a new entry in the Tony Hawk franchise should stop, the famous skater has detailed.

Taking to Twitter, Tony Hawk himself said that while Activision still owns the franchise’s license, he’s not in league with the publisher.

“To anyone asking me to ‘remaster” old games, or complaining about THPS servers being down: Activision owns the THPS license but I am no longer working with them,” he said. “If I had the skills / authority to reboot servers or code games for newer systems on my own, I would be happy to.”

A sequel wouldn’t be easy at present; original developer Neversoft was shut down in 2014, and sequels by new developer Robomodo were heavily panned.

What would you give for a new entry in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater or Skate franchises?
