Vicarious Visions, the studio who did the work on Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is returning to do the work on making the newest Pro Skater game, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, for current consoles on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC through the Epic Games Store.
The game was announced during the Summer Game Fest’s first live stream, hosted by Geoff Knightley, alongside Tony Hawk who was celebrating his 52nd birthday. Hawk spoke about how many people had approached him in the past about doing remakes for these classic titles. Now, we can expect to see them returning to modern consoles near the end of summer.
You can get your hands on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 on Sept 4. The exact time of the game’s release is not specified, but it is a Friday release, so players can likely expect a midnight transition of the title.
