Tony Hawk Kickflips into E3
Since the release of EA’s revolutionary skateboarding title, appropriately named Skate, Tony Hawk has had an extended hiatus. The simple, yet intuitive, control scheme caused many skateboarding fans to flock to EA’s offering, and caused Activision to rethink how Tony Hawk games are made.
After undergoing what Senior VP Will Kassov calls the “Tony Hawk Innovation Plan”, it looks like the famous skateboarding franchise will be returning with a new developer at the helm. And in addition to this, the game is likely to include a peripheral motion controller. No word yet on whether the game will see a 2009 release, but we’ll keep you updated as this story develops.
