Another Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game may have been accidentally leaked. Speaking to the Behind Closed Doors podcast, Jess Margera, drummer for the band CKY, revealed that the band’s music has been licensed by Activision for an upcoming Tony Hawk game.
Margera spoke to the podcast about how bands can make money outside of album sales, such as through touring and licensing deals. Saying, “Now touring is your main income, and you really have to try and get licensing deals, try and get in where you can on video games or whatever, because that’s another way to make some money.”
CKY previously had a track featured on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, which the podcast host pointed out. Margera responded by saying “Yeah, and I believe we’re doing the new one coming out too.”
It’s worth noting that the drummer of the alt-metal band is also the brother of THPS mainstay Bam Margera.
Margera went on to speak about how his son just got a PlayStation 5 and plays the remaster of 1 + 2. We may have to start looking towards bands for the scoop on new THPS games. Don’t forget, the remasters of 1 + 2 were teased by punk rock band The Death Set.
What’s next for the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series?
It only makes sense for Activision to remaster all of the classics in the Tony Hawk back catalog. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 and 4 are widely regarded as the two of the best games the series ever released. It would be incredible to see the 20-year-old shredders receive some modern graphics and gameplay additions. Tony Hawk games were nearly extinct over the past decade or so. The remasters have really helped to revive the hallowed skate series.
