New Tony Hawk game on the way, according to CKY's Jess Margera

Rock band CKY’s drummer, Jess Margera, has potentially revealed that Activision is working on a new Tony Hawk title during an appearance on the Behind Closed Doors podcast last month.

Jess Margera — drummer for CKY — was on the Behind Closed Doors podcast last month (thanks, VGC), discussing the reality of bands making money beyond album sales. During the chat, the interviewer asked Margera: “I’m assuming you guys were on at least one of the Tony Hawk games, weren’t you?” Which is correct, as CKY’s song ‘96 Quite Bitter Beings’ appeared in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3. “Yeah, and I believe we’re doing the new one coming out too,” Margera replied.

It could be that he was referring to next month's Switch release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, but a little further into the interview, he mentions the remaster separately. “Yeah, my son just got a PS5 and he got the remaster of 1 and 2,” Margera continues. “It’s so cool because the classic Tony Hawks are just so good and laid out great, but obviously the system is old and the graphics aren’t so great, so they basically just vamped up with the same premise and the graphics are amazing.”

VGC approached Activision for confirmation, but a spokesperson stated that the company “doesn’t comment on rumour or speculation." What would you rather see: a remaster of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 or a completely fresh title? Let us know your thoughts!
