You didn’t expect him to be gone for too long, did you?

Tony Hawk’s teased on Twitter that he’s about to announce a brand new game starring him at the VGAs this Saturday.

In a tweet, he said this: “I’ll be announcing the upcoming release of something new on Sat; the same day as the Spike Video Game Awards. Coincidence? I think not.”

Nope, definitely not a coincidence in our book.

The last Tony Hawk game was last year’s Shred from Robomodo, but saying it didn’t do well at retail would be an understatement.

Activision revealed earlier this year there would be no Hawk game for 2011 in the same announcement that it was to close its music business, putting the series on hold.

Hawk did hint in April a new iteration for next year was in the works. This is probably it.
