Tony Hawk working on a new game without Activision

In an interview with skateboarding publication Jenkem Magazine, skateboard and video game legend Tony Hawk confirmed that there will be a new game on the horizon, but this time not being produced by Activision.

When asked directly in the interview about the series next game, Hawk replied “Not from Activision. I’m potentially working on something but it’s so early I couldn’t talk about it. I don’t have any contracts signed but it’s exciting. I feel like it’s with the right people so I should know more in the next couple months.”

The Tony Hawk series has always been a staple of the gaming world since the early Playstation days.  The last game in the series, Pro Skater 5, was published by Activision and was poorly received. It was also announced that the Activision’s contract with Hawk was good until 2015, which likely explained the rushed state of the game.
