Tony Hawk Has New Games Headed for Consoles and Mobile Play in 2015
Former professional skater Tony Hawk announced on Twitter that he is currently collaborating with Activision to bring both a console game and mobile game to the masses.
The news followed up after Hawk responded to a tweet inquiring about the status of mobile game Tony Hawk's Shred Session, which was announced by Activision back in April. Shred Session was a free-to-play game said to be made available for iOS and Android. Although it was given a summer release period, it has yet to be released.
Hawk's Twitter reply to user hodapp cleared up any confusion about the game's whereabouts:
Whatup Eli @hodapp! Sorry, Shred Session has been put on hold indefinitely. But I have bigger news for THPS fans… (cont'd)— Tony Hawk (@tonyhawk) November 7, 2014
The "bigger news" turned out to be bigger titles. Hawk continued to follow-up the tweet with further explanation:
I’m currently working with Activision on a console game for 2015 (along with a new mobile game). I think fans of THPS series will be hyped.— Tony Hawk (@tonyhawk) November 7, 2014
An Activision rep has since confirmed the two statements made by Hawk:
"We can confirm that Tony Hawk's Shred Session is postponed indefinitely, and that new Tony Hawk console and mobile titles are coming in 2015."
Further details about Shred Session's postponement have not been released, not has Activistion confirmed which consoles the games will be available on.
However, the console and mobile games are indeed expected to be released sometime in 2015.
