Is there a Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Reboot in the works?

VGW: If you were at all gaming in the 90s you’ll remember the Tony Hawk franchise at its best. The title became immensely popular for it’s impressive landscapes, versatile control scheme, fun easter eggs and great soundtracks. Jump to the present day and the franchise has hit a few bumps in the road, most notably the recent Tony Hawk Ride and Tony Hawk Shred which made use of a skate peripheral. They were pretty much unplayable.

Today however, a suggestive Tweet came from Mr. Hawk, a man known to be very involved with the franchise.

I hope so, they might just be remaking the level in his next game though. They need to do something to bring Tony Hawk games back from the dead....That stupid board thingy killed it dead.

Activision are reasonable, business-minded people, right? Certainly they've learned their lesson from two peripheral flops. Add to that the increased trend of reboots and HD remakes....Maybe this is just wishful thinking, but I think it's time.

It could happen....I would say it could go either way really, I was just throwing that out there.....I would buy a remake.

If it plays like Tony Hawk: PS 2 then I'm in. Many hours were wasted on my Dreamcast with that game.

lol, not very subtle, but it's good that there's a potential THPS game in the works that could go back to the series' roots. Good on them.

If they really want to make this work, they should
forget about open world,
forget about complicated controls,
forget about the ability to walk around (although this dead make traversing the levels easier and more fun),
forget about in depth story-lines,
forget about making any "clever" control schemes (I'm looking at YOU, Nail-The-Trick).

And just make a good game with lots of levels, lots of fun and lots of extras. They died, not because of a peripheral, but because they attempted to compete with the skate franchise, which was trying to go in a different direction in the first place. And look where it got skate... in every bargain bin up and down the country.

Speaking of which, imagine if the likes of Pro Skater 4 were around today. They could be releasing new levels as DLC every month. And exclusive characters, possibly even based on Sony/Microsoft exclusive brands. Okay, maybe too far.
