Neversoft rumoured to be off Hawk, Robomodo steps up

In its latest podcast, Giant Bomb’s rumoured that Neversoft isn’t working on the next Tony Hawk game, which is instead being developed by new Chicago outfit Robomodo.

The Illinois team is apparently made up from ex-EA Chicago staffers and is currently looking for staff for an Acitvision project, as you can see here.

If true, it would certainly fit in with Activision’s “innovation plan” for the series, as alluded to – but not detailed – in March.

It would also be the end of an era: Neversoft has put out ten Hawk games (we think).

This stuff’s 52.50 into that audio file. We’ve asked for comment from Activision. Thanks to the Gaf.

    I would imagine it’d be something of a relief for Neversoft. Doing the same thing for ten years must be mind-numbingly dull.

    Yep. It really showed in the last few games, I think.

    Agreed.

    It needs someone fresh to take a look at it. But tbh the only way they could improve and innovate with a skateboarding game has already been done better with EA’s SKATE. I really can’t see a TH game ever coming close to that.
