Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 remakes are reportedly in development

Tony Hawk

Amid a whole host of various gaming rumours circulating social media at the moment, there has been a recent suggestion that there could be a remake of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2.

The franchise was, perhaps, tarnished by the latest edition of the immediate series Pro Skater 5.

The game hit consoles in 2015, but wasn’t received well by fans or critics. The PS4 version was slated by critics, getting a mark of 32/100 from Metacritic.

The original game that started it all received a score of 92/100 and created a cult following for the rest of the franchise.

That is why Activision might be looking back to move forward.

The Call of Duty franchise recently released a revamped version of their most popular game Modern Warfare and that may have served as inspiration for the skateboarding series.

Rumours spiralled out of control after industry journalist and previously verified sharer of rumours Sabi claimed that Activision has developed remastered prototypes of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2.

These same prototypes are allegedly being shared around Activision right now.

Releasing the inside gossip via Twitter, he said: “Explanation of what I shared in my server:

“An Activision contact told me a week or so ago about how Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 had demos/prototypes remade. They went around internally. I didn't share before as I wasn’t sure if they were being remade as full games, or just a test.”

Sitting on the information for over a week, Sabi waited on disclosing the news because they didn’t want to create an immense amount of hype over something until they thought it could carry some weight.

However, after collaborating with fellow journalist Liam Robertson, it seems that the remake could very well be well in the works.

After the successes of the remastered Spyro and Crash Bandicoot, Activision did claim that they would be looking into making more remodelled versions of old games.

It really is an exciting time to be a long-serving fan of the PS1 era.
