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

Once upon a time, the Tony Hawk series was one of the biggest in videogames. If you listen to Metacritic, the Tony Hawk Pro Skater titles are some of the best games of all time, and every one of them was a runaway bestseller. At the beginning of the last decade – just after the release of Pro Skater 2 – the franchise was generating $250 million a year, according to figures from analyst Wedbush Morgan.
Last year, the year of Tony Hawk: Ride, franchise sales were closer to $100m. This year, Activision’s trying – failing – to flog $120 fake skateboards to children, whilst Activision publicly defends its abysmal sales.
What on earth happened, and why, when Activision is culling the likes of Bizarre Creations, won’t Activision finally shoot the Hawk?

Remember that tweet from Tony Hawk earlier this week? That one which mentioned ‘Tony Hawk: Shred’ as the new title as his new game? The one that had Activision PR facepalming?
Yeah, that one: the firm’s confirmed that is the title for the new game in the series.

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.
