We got excited for nothing! The new Tony Hawk game will be a mobile game.

We learned last week that Tony a Hawk was teaming up with Activision again for a new project. We so hoped that Neversoft would be in the mix too and that we could maybe see the series go back to it roots, which resulted in a few brilliant skating titles.

The series’ last few games were less than stellar as the series tried new tricks.

“We’re working on a mobile game now,” which will release to mobile devices this year, Hawk confirmed to Bloomberg.

“We’ve never gone exclusively in that direction yet so I’m excited because, with the amount of time people are spending on their phones and their tablets playing games, we’ve never had our own game in that space so I’m excited to provide one finally.”

We don’t hate mobile games at Zombiegamer, not really. We hate that they drain manpower that could be working on the next AAA title.
