The revival of Tony Hawk games didn't quite go to plan with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. That game was pretty much a disaster from top to bottom, which sucked because it was supposed to be a return to form for the series.
Well, Hawk is going to take another bite of the video games apple it seems, and this time with new creative partners. Speaking to Jenkem Magazine (via Destructoid), the pro skater said that he is currently trying to get a new game going, and that while he has found people to work with, they aren't Activision. When asked about more games, he said:
Not from Activision. I'm potentially working on something but it's so early I couldn't talk about it. I don't have any contracts signed but it's exciting. I feel like it's with the right people so I should know more in the next couple months.
I wonder if this means that the rights have lapsed or been cancelled by Activision, who seem to have had that happen a lot recently, seemingly losing grasp of exclusivity on Marvel games. I wouldn't expect to hear about this anytime soon due to how early this all seems, but it's definitely interesting that Hawk is looking elsewhere to do more game stuff.
