Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD is leaving Steam. Put it in your library now!
If you’ve ever wanted to own Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD on PC, you’d better move quick.
According to a Steam news post, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater will be withdrawn from sale on the service on July 17, at 10:00am PT.
It’s not unusual for games to be pulled from Steam when licensing deals expire, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater does feature licensed music. It’s unlikely Activision will renew expensive deals for a legacy title, so don’t expect it to pop back up on Steam or via other digital distribution services.
The good news is that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is 80% off, so if you do want to grab it, you won’t break the bank too badly.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD arrived on Steam in September 2012, so it’s been available for almost five years. As far as we’re concerned it’s the last ever Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game and we do not speak of the other one.
The remastered title was also released on PS3 and Xbox 360, and received one DLC pack, Revert, which featured content from Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3. The DLC is not on sale on Steam, unfortunately.
Nobody’s said anything about the console builds of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD going offline, and they don’t seem to be on sale. They may well be covered by different licensing deals.
