Tony Hawks facing revamp

Publish date:

US publisher Activision has pledged to reassess its Tony Hawk's franchise and introduce a number of new innovations into the next instalment, which is expected to hit shelves later this year.

EA recently claimed that its new extreme-sports contender Skate had outsold Activision's Tony Hawk's Proving Ground by a ratio of 2-to-1.

Skate turned the skating genre on its head last year with it's revolutionary twin-stick control method. After nine years of Tony Hawk's this fresh approach proved to be both a critical and commercial success for EA.
