Skateboarding star Tony Hawk says he will be announcing an upcoming release on the day of the Spike Video Game Awards.

The extreme sports legend said on Twitter: I'll be announcing the upcoming release of something new on Saturday; the same day as the Spike Video Game Awards. Coincidence? I think not.”

The Tony Hawk series first arrived on the original Sony PlayStation in 1999. Tony Hawk: Shred is the latest Hawk game from Activision which was released in October 2010. It used a skateboard accessory and saw disappointing sales.

Tony Hawk was typically an annually released game franchise but this year no new release hit shelves.

Earlier this year Hawk said: We're going to do something probably for next year but I can't give too much away”.

In December 2010 Activision Publishing's CEO Eric Hirshberg said Hawk is a lasting icon with Michael Jordan-esque staying power”.
