Tony Hawk’s next game is probably called Shred. We know because that’s what Tony Hawk said on Twitter.

Despite Robomodo’s initial Tony Hawk Ride title getting roundly savage by critics towards the end of 2009, company CEO Mike Griffith believes the next game in the series, due later this year, will succeed in achieving the concept’s vision.

Tony Hawk: RIDE kind of sucked. Undeterred, the Birdman’s confirmed Robomodo’s started on a second game.

Bony Tony’s continuing to stand by RIDE, despite the fact it’s been battered to death at review, saying he doesn’t feel the peripheral format is a “gimmick”.
“I feel like the device is a flagship for other games. I think we can do another skate game, I think we can do other board-type games, surfing, snowboarding. That really was the master plan,” he told Kotaku.
“I didn’t think it was some gimmick that people were going to have to buy again next year.”
Or any other year, from the look of it. Hit the link for the full thing.

With the first one not even due out until December in the UK, it seems that work is about to get underway on Tony Hawk RIDE 2.
Developer Robomodo has up 15 job listings for an unannounced “extreme sports game”. Get applying if you fancy it, and are qualified obviously.

Activision’s confirmed that it’s releasing Tony Hawk: Ride in the US for PS3, 360 and Wii on November 17, although no price point was given for the game.
It was dated for November 20 in the UK recently.
Last week, it was announced during the company’s Q2 financials that it’ll only get a release in the UK, US and Germany this year.

Robomodo president Joshua Tsui says that the skateboard peripheral for Tony Hawk’s Ride isn’t, it’s a platform in it’s own right.
“It’s really important to us that when people buy this package that they understand that, right now we’re concentrating on Tony Hawk Ride, but we want to make sure that people have a good return on their investment so there are many games that are planned for this peripheral,” said Tsui to Videogamer at E3.
“We look at it less as a peripheral, as more of a platform. The obvious ones are snowboarding and surfing and such, but there are a lot of games that can be used with this board, and we’re really excited to start working on those.”
RIDE is out for PS3 and 360 later this year.

Variety‘s rumoring that Activision’s now confirmed Q4 Hawk game will have a “skateboard” peripheral. Big shock there.
A source has told the site that the peripheral will be more about “grabbing and manipulating the board to pull of all tricks” than for actual balancing.
It’s expected to release on PS3 and 360. Apparently the Wii version will not use the Wii Balance Board.
Robomodo’s supposedly working on the peripheral, and future Tony Hawk titles are expected to use it if all goes well.

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.
