A few days ago something really ridiculous happened; a caterer potentially outed an upcoming game that the developers were not opening up about.
The title in question is probably going to be called Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 and the legendary skateboarder has now decided to tease the fans about it a little more.
Tony Hawk took to his official Instagram profile with a short video of fellow skateboarder Rob Wootton who is shown mimicking the character outfit selection feature of the old Tony hawk games. On a side note, he really acted well; almost identical to how you would see the characters shuffle around in different clothes.
Here’s the text referring potentially to Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5:
Select your character [by Rob Wootton] I am sharing this now in honor of our next game having been accidentally “leaked” recently… THPS fans will rejoice. Details soon.
That being said, we have heard Hawk talk about the next game in the series for so long that none of these new tid bits really feel new. For a long time they have neither revealed the game officially nor have they kept it hidden well enough.
I think it is about time that they come out with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, or whatever they want to call it, and show it off through the official channels. Or at least confirm the game’s name with an official word and give the fans a window to look out for.
Don’t you think developers should change the way they market their games; they should at least start talking about it at a time when they are closing in on the official reveal, right?
