New Tony Hawk Game in the Pipeline? Rock Musician Reveals Details

Jess Margera, drummer for the band CKY, admitted in an interview that his band may be co-writing the soundtrack for a new installment of Tony Hawk.

Jess Margera from the band CKY was a guest on the music podcast Behind The Closed Doors. Among the many topics discussed were those about the band's finances. At one point, a question was asked about musicians' sources of income and how to survive in the music industry.

"Making music now is like the Wild West. You have to be very creative [...] Touring is now the biggest source of income. You have to try to get licensing deals, try to get in where you can, in video games or whatever, because that's another way to make money," Margera said.

Then the host reminded about CKY's gaming episode, as the band's song 96 Quite Bitter Beings appeared in 2001 game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3. The musician replied that he's "sure they'll be working on the latest one" [installment - ed. note]. Let's add that it's not about the "latest" remake of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, as CKY's music doesn't appear in that soundtrack. The musician admitted that his son is a big fan of the game.

The drummer's words may mean that another installment of the Tony Hawk series, which has not yet been publicly announced, is in the works. According to VGC, a spokesperson for Activision stated that they "will not comment on rumors and speculation".

If the words of Jesse Margera prove to be true, this is the second time that musicians are the source of a leak concerning Tony Hawk games. Last year, The Death Set shared a Facebook post suggesting that their songs would be included in the soundtrack of the then unannounced Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2.

When he was a kid, he thought he would become a rock star (and to this day still has a little hope that this will come true). He played in several bands during his high school and college years, but was not successful with any of them, however, he makes his living in part from music – unfortunately, playing pot-boiler kind of music at weddings. He is studying journalism and took his first steps in radio, but he did not stay there long, preferring to look for something else. He took on various jobs, often completely unrelated to his profession; for several years, he even was a bartender. He came Gamepressure in December 2020 and has been a loyal padawan of the Newsroom ever since, although he also worked with Friendly Fire, where he was in charge of its TikTok.
