Tony Hawk has just announced a new title in his eponymous game series, courtesy of Activision.

The legendary pro skater outed the game on Twitter, writing “I’m currently working with Activision on a console game for 2015.”

He added: “I think fans of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series will be hyped.

The last Hawk-officiated title on consoles was Pro Skater HD in 2012, which landed across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and the Nintendo Wii.

Pro Skater HD was a re-release of the original Pro Skater games, featuring high-definition revamps of classic levels.

The last title in Tony Hawk’s main series of games was Proving Ground, which launched in 2007 to lukewarm critical reception.

Tony Hawk kicked off his game-endorsing career back in 1999 with the original Pro Skater title, seeing play on the PlayStation, the Nintendo 64, the Dreamcast, the Game Boy Colour, and the N-Gage.

Pro Skater 1, 2, and 3 were all developed by Neversoft, a subsidiary of Activision that was merged into Infinity Ward in May this year.

Hawk also revealed he was working on a new mobile game, replacing Shred Session on iOS which he said had been ‘put on hold indefinitely.’
