Remakes may not have the best reputation these days, but one of the most successful ones in recent years was the remake of the first two Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater titles. Unfortunately, it seems that all hopes for a remake of the following two games in the series have been squashed, as Tony Hawk himself revealed further plans were canceled after the developers were acquired by Activision.

Vicarious Visions developed Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 and 2, and according to Hawk they were also planning on developing a Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 and 4 Remake right up until the launch of THPS Remake in 2020. However, shortly after the release, Vicarious Visions was acquired by Activision, and subsequently put to work on existing IP from Blizzard.

Talking about a potential remake of THPS 3 and 4, Hawk said: “That was the plan,” on a recent livestream. “Even up until the release date of [Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1+2], we were going 3 and 4. Then Vicarious got absorbed, and then they were looking for other developers. And then it was over.

Since Vicarious was put onto existing Blizzard properties, Activision apparently was looking for somebody else to do a THPS 3 and 4 Remake “but they just didn’t really trust anyone the way they did Vicarious,” Hawk added, “so they took other pitches from other studios, like, ‘what would you do with the THPS title?’ And they didn’t like anything they heard, and then that was it.

Despite that, Hawk is optimistic about the future of the series and a remake of THPS 3+4: “Who knows? Maybe when the dust settles, we’ll figure it out. You never know. I never would’ve thought we were going to do 1 and 2 20 years later.” So there is still a possibility of it some day, but right now there doesn’t seem to be any plans.

What do you think? Would you have been interested in a Tony Hawks Pro Skater 3+4? What improvements would have liked to have seen over 1 and 2? Do you think we will ever see a 3 and 4 Remake? Let us know your thoughts!

Would you have been excited for a THPS 3 and 4 Remake?

One of the greatest video game franchises ever created. During octordle the first four games, I only had a mild interest in skateboarding. Excellent remastering work. Please bring it back into consideration.

I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…


:) AND GOOD LUCK.:)

I bet that Acti!^%# didn't saw the $1B of selling in the 1st 24h... And if there's no microtransactions = no money income...

One of the best game series of all time. Cained the 1st 4 games for hours and only had a mild interest in skateboarding. One of the best remasters ever to. Hope they can bring the idea back to the table.

Undergrounds never stuck with me, seemed douchy somehow. But the others - hell yeah!

I was very young when I played them and didn't know enough english, so IDK if they are or aren't, but I remember that the next 3 games after Underground 2 were much worse.
