Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 + 4 scrapped following Vicarious Visions merger into Blizzard

    Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 were widely successful remasters that harkened back to a simpler time in gaming. Unfortunately, it appears Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 + 4 won’t be happening any time soon.

    The Pro Skater series was influential to many players who owned an original PlayStation or Nintendo 64. Following the initial release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, a Switch version would arrive to bring the nostalgic experience to Nintendo once more. Many were thrilled about the success of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 and anticipated more remasters once their playthrough was finished.

    During a Twitch stream of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 by @andyTHPS, Tony Hawk decided to clarify the situation regarding a potential Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 + 4. There were plans before the release of THPS 1 + 2 to prepare for remasters of THPS 3 and 4. However, plans were derailed due to the Vicarious Visions merger into Blizzard.

    Activision and Tony Hawk sought out another developer for the project, but plans would fizzle out shortly after. Pitches for a new THPS title were made by other studios, but Activision did not trust any other studio to develop THPS titles on the level of Vicarious Visions. Ultimately, plans were scrapped for THPS 3 + 4.

    Vicarious Visions is now known as Blizzard Albany and runs support for Blizzard titles. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is available now for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC.
