Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s there was no more successful extreme sports video game series than Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Now, five years after the trainwreck that was Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, fans could be getting a new installment to the series.
On Tuesday, March 10, punk rock band The Death Set put up a Facebook status regarding their songs being included in the next game.

“Just licensed 5 new songs to Tony Hawk 2020 game. You’ll be hearing this shit soon,” the status said. Needless to say, that post was quickly removed, though, thanks to Twitter user TheNathanNS, it lives on.
Now, despite the post mentioned a “2020 game”, it isn’t clear if a brand new entry in the series will be released or if it’ll be a remastered version of the classics with a new soundtrack. Back in 2019, rumors began circulating about the future of the franchise which Activision even mentioning more remasters were coming after the success of the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon trilogies.
The most recent Tony Hawk-branded skate title was launched on mobile devices last year, but it had nothing to do with Activision who retains rights to the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. Tony Hawk himself hasn’t been working with Activision on game’s holding his name since the last game’s release and subsequent server shutdown.
