Recall that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a remake of the first two parts of the cult skater series by the American studio Vicarious Visions, later acquired by Blizzard Entertainment.

According to Hawke, Activision had a plan to renew the third and fourth Pro Skaters, but due to Vicarious Visions’ merger with Blizzard, the project was left without a developer and a new one could not be found.

“They tried to find someone for 3 and 4 but they couldn’t trust anyone like Vicarious. So they started accepting ideas from other studios of what they would do with the THPS project. They didn’t like anything they heard. It all ended here.”Hawke remembered.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is available for PC (Epic Games Store), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch. Vicarious Visions will no longer play custom games after joining Blizzard.
