Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Is Real And It Is Coming This Year


We've known that Tony Hawk was licencing his name to another game this year for a little while. We also assumed it would be called Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 since the logo was leaked on Instagram last month.

Well, that has all been confirmed now, thanks to the new issue of Game Informer. Tony Hawk's will be coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One this year the June issue confirmed.

Before you go celebrating yet though, be aware of these little facts. The game is being made by Robomodo, the team who made Tony Hawk: Ride, Shred and Pro Skater HD. Those are largely considered quite inferior to the rest of the catalogue.

On top of this, and keep in mind we don't know in what context, Game Informer report that the game will have:

power-ups and the ability to shoot projectiles for specific missions

Still, it's good to see the game back and continuing on the Pro Skater name shows a confidence of recapturing the hey-day. For their sake, I hope it does too. I think you only get one chance at this come back.
