Alcatraz - Activision's Mysterious Game Coming to PC and Consoles

The Brazilian body responsible for age rating of video games has evaluated a game titled Alcatraz. It is supposed to be a sports game from Activision, which in October will go on PC and current-gen consoles. A few weeks ago there were reports suggesting that Alcatraz will be the subtitle of the next installment of the Tony Hawk's series.

Is Alcatraz another Tony Hawk?

IN A NUTSHELL:

  1. The Brazilian age rating agency evaluated a sports game called Alcatraz;
  2. The title is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PCs and is published by Activision;
  3. A few weeks ago there were rumors of another installment of the Tony Hawk skateboard series with this subtitle.

The Brazilian body responsible for video game age ratings has evaluated a mysterious production titled Alcatraz, said to be a sports game. The title is due to appear on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 30. Interestingly, a few weeks ago, information about a similarly titled game appeared - it was to be another part of the Tony Hawk series (tweet below).

Is this the same title? If so, then the situation is all the more strange because the publisher in question recently announced a remake of the first two parts of the skateboard series - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 - which will appear on exactly the same platforms in September. If Alcatraz really is the next installment in the series, it would mean that the franchise will return with double the force this year. Of course, 1+2 is "just" a refreshed version of the classic, but we're talking about 20-year-old games - creating a full-fledged remake requires a lot of work to be done from scratch.

It should be noted that the game rated in Brazil, is not a Tony Hawk game - maybe it is a completely different sports game. For more information we will probably have to wait for the official announcement - taking into account the not too distant release date, it may happen soon.
