According to a professional skateboarder, Jason Dill, a new Tony Hawk Pro Skater game is coming out in 2020 and the publisher Activision wanted to add his skateboard to the in-game selection of boards for players to choose from.
It's been five years since the last game in the beloved Tony Hawk Pro Skater series. Sadly, the game did not meet the expectations and the majority of players were extremely disappointed with the lack of content, outdated graphics and gameplay mechanics.
That's why Activision were reluctant to work on a new instalment but it looks like that is about to change. According to a professional skateboarder Jason Dill, who spoke in The Nine Club podcast , a new Tony Hawk Pro Skater game is coming sometime this year.
Accidentally or not, Dill said: "do you guys know that there's a new Tony Hawk's Pro Skater coming out in 2020?". Furthermore, he said that Activision wanted to add one of his skateboards to the game as one of the options for players to choose from.
Now, Activision are yet to announce the new Tony Hawk Pro Skater game so we suggest you take this information with a grain of salt.
That being said, Dill is a well-known skater who previously appeared in EA's Skate game so it is possible that Activision also wanted to add a piece of his gear to their game.
Since a big summer of world premieres, announcements and game news is ahead of us, it would not be surprising if Activision officially revealed the game in the next couple of months.se
