Tony Hawk 5 may have just been leaked by Tony's caterer (update)

The new Tony Hawk skateboarding game might be called simply Tony Hawk 5, based on a photo posted from what appears to be an event for the game. Chef Joe Youkhan posted photos today to Instagram and Facebook from a brand summit that he's catering, which shows the title "Tony Hawk 5" on a presentation screen, behind what looks like a video game console. Those images have since been deleted.

We know that Activision and Tony Hawk plan to release a new video game sometime this year; last year, both the game maker and Hawk confirmed they were working on a game for consoles and mobile platforms.

"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," Hawk said.

If the name Tony Hawk 5 is accurate, it would seem to indicate that Activision and Hawk are hoping to pick up the franchise where Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 left off in 2002. After the fourth game, Activision and developer Neversoft moved on to Tony Hawk's Underground.

Update: A spokesperson for Activision says "Tony Hawk 5" is a working title, and not the final title.
