Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Looks to be Arriving This Year According to Jason Dill
Is it coming out soon? Later this year? Who knows!?
It feels like a long time coming, but it looks as if we’ll be finally seeing another Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater landing this year. This is according to professional skater Jason Dill during a live stream show called The Nine Club that went up yesterday.
The professional skater can be found in the timestamp section below (1:36:35) talking about a new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game. “Do you guys know that there’s a new Tony Hawk Pro Skateboarder coming out in 2020?” he says, effortlessly moving on from a previous conversation about something completely different.
“I heard that Shaun’s in it” he adds, although it’s unclear exactly who he’s referencing. If professional legends are anything to go by, he’s possibly talking about Shaun White who has also had a skateboarding game in 2010.
Jason Dill goes on to explain that he wanted to be in the upcoming Tony Hawk’s game, “So I made sure to add my board to the boards you could pick because I wanted to be in that shit too somehow!” he says.
A new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater has been rumored for a while now. In March 2020, a leak seemingly shows a band, The Death Set announcing that it has licensed 5 new songs for the upcoming 2020 Tony Hawk game. We also saw a Twitter user Sabi claiming that Activision was working on a new skateboarding game. The Nine Club, as featured above, also had an interview in 2019 with professional skateboarder Lizzie Armanto who stated that she was going to be in the new Tony Hawk game that’s coming out.

I’m personally excited to see the arrival of a new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, be that a remaster of the older games, or a brand new experience. Either way, let me shred some decks with some digitalized professional skateboarders damn it. For now, we have Skate XL and Session to see me through.
