Skateboarder extraordinaire Tony Hawk recently ‘announced’ via his Twitter account that the next game in the long-running series of Tony Hawk games would feature the title ‘Tony Hawk: SHRED,’ tweeting:
“Tony Hawk: Shred. There, I said it. Actually, I named it. Somewhere a PR team is reeling”
Very soon after the ‘announcement’ by Hawk himself, the entry was removed, leading to speculation over the true name that would adorn the upcoming, expected follow-up to last year’s not-so-hot Tony Hawk: RIDE.
Today however, a representative from Activision has confirmed the title:
“We can confirm we’ve given a name to the next Tony Hawk game ‒ Tony Hawk: SHRED,” the representative said, “and more details will be revealed in the coming months.”
‘In the coming months’ probably means E3 in June, where developer Robomodo and Tony Hawk will hopefully reveal a game that shows they’ve learned from previous experiences with their touted skateboard peripheral.
