Tony Hawk recently commented that “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 + 4” was in development, but it was eventually canceled when Activision merged developer Vicarious Visions with Blizzard.
In 2020 Vicarious Visions released Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 to critical acclaim, including our review. Rebuilding the two classic PlayStation titles from the ground up while maintaining the 1:1 gameplay of the legendary original releases. The remake would go on to become the best-selling entry in the franchise’s history, racking up a million sales in just its first week of release. Naturally, this led fans to hope that both Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4 would receive similar attention in the near future.
However, speaking on a Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Twitch stream last weekend via Okami Games, Birdman himself suggested that while more remakes were planned, but Vicarious Visions’ controversial merger with Blizzard has surely put an end to that and perhaps permanently. Visions was also responsible for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, another well-received remaster. Following the merger, the developer is now solely focused on providing support for games like World of Warcraft and Overwatch.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 + 4 remasters were in the works but they were scrapped after Vicarious Visions was merged into Blizzard. 😔
