Reviving one of the most iconic game series to come out of the 90s, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD served as a healthy dose of fan service for Pro Skater fans by revisiting the series’ first two titles with remastered visuals and more – however, next week the title will be delisted in case you want to hurry and grab that skateboard again.

An announcement on the Steam page for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD (via PC Gamer) announced that the game will be removed from Steam on Monday, July 17th, 2017 and no longer available for purchase on the platform (though those that have it in their Steam library will still be able to download/redownload it).

No specific reason was given for the game’s removal from the platform, though the most likely candidate for the removal would be expiring music licenses within the title (especially given its huge soundtrack of licensed music from various artists). The same thing happened to Alan Wake earlier this year with the title having expiring music licenses that forced the game to be removed from sale.

Though Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD will be removed from the store next week, those looking to grab the title before its removal from sale can pick up the game in a weeklong deal that drops its price from $9.99 to $1.99, giving the perfect opportunity to pick it up before it’s gone. The title is also available on PS3 and Xbox 360, but no indication has been given yet if the title will be removed from those platforms as well (the title is discounted on Xbox 360 though, so it may be likely).

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD is available for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
