New Hawk to give “thrill of skateboarding like never before”, E3 reveal planned

Friday, 8th May 2009 07:02 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Activision CEO Mike Griffith said in Acti Blizz’s Q1 earnings call yesterday that the new Tony Hawk game is to add a completely new dimension to the series. That’ll be a plastic skateboard, then.

“We are also planning to release our reinvention of Tony Hawk [later this year], with a very innovative and interactive game that lets consumers experience the thrill of skateboarding like never before,” said the boss.

“Our goal from the start was to reinvent this franchise back to its roots where we engaged a broad, mass market consumer, and we feel good about what this game can do. We will also unveil specifics at E3.”

Roll on June. You can never have enough bits of plastic in your living room.

    Skateboarding could work with that camera thingy that Microsoft absolutely aren’t revealing at E3. You could ‘skate’ without actually needing a plastic skateboard – just ‘do the motions’. Like a mime.

    They’ll do well to get anything out that a) isn’t a gimmick and b) is better than Skate 2. That game is brilliant.

    Still at least they’ve pulled their finger out.
