New Tony Hawk games coming to consoles and mobile in 2015 (update)

Tony Hawk is collaborating with Activision on a console game and a mobile game, both of which are scheduled to be released in 2015, he announced on Twitter today.

"I'm currently working with Activision on a console game for 2015 (along with a new mobile game). I think fans of [the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater] series will be hyped," the skateboarding legend said. Hawk signed a long-term exclusive contract with Activision in 2002 that is set to expire in 2015.

Hawk announced the "bigger news" after responding to a tweet asking about the status of the mobile game Tony Hawk's Shred Session, a free-to-play title that Activision announced in April. Shred Session was supposed to be released on Android and iOS this summer, but according to Hawk, the game "has been put on hold indefinitely."

Shred Session was in development at U.K. studio Big Bit. The most recent original entry in the Tony Hawk franchise was 2009's Tony Hawk: Shred, which was developed by Chicago-based Robomodo. That studio also made Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD in 2012, which brought levels from the first two games in the series into high definition.

We've reached out to Activision for comment, and will update this article with any information we receive.

Update: A representative for Activision confirmed the information in Hawk's tweets, but offered no further details, saying, "We can confirm Tony Hawk's Shred Session is postponed indefinitely, and that new Tony Hawk console and mobile titles are coming in 2015."
