Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 Sequel Got Shafted by Activision

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3+4 was supposedly in the plans, claims Tony Hawk. However, the realization was hindered by Activision.

The successful Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 was going to get a sequel. Plans to create a Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3+4 were abandoned after organizational changes occurred at Activision. The information comes from the mouth of Tony Hawk himself, who was present at the stream of one of the fans. Here you can find a clip with his comment.

The aforementioned broadcast took place on AndyTHPS channel. Tony Hawk at some point joined it and revealed that plans for THPS 3+4 were abandoned with Vicarious Visions joining Blizzard in support of working on games in the Diablo.

"That was the plan, until the release of 1+2. We were supposed to create 3+4, but then Vicarious Visions was kind of absorbed. Activision looked for other developers, but no one could be found."

In the further part of the statement the skater added that Activision representatives did not like the proposals of other studios, specificallt their visions of refreshing the later installments of the famous skateboarding series. The company also did not trust any of them as much as the creators of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, who can also boasr great work on, for example, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.

Tony Hawk, however, is not giving up hope. As he himself admitted, he never thought he'd see a thorough refresh of the first two installments of this classic series.

News of the creation of a similar remaster of the next parts of THPS would be great - especially if it retained a similar quality level. It would be a shame to abandon such a great series, especially since there are few similar productions. Nevertheless, the words of the legendary skater are not an official information. Maybe one day Activision Blizzard will surprise us positively.
