Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 was a surprisingly great adaptation of the original games, which not only felt like the originals but added slight tweaks for those wanting to have a more fresh experience. Sadly, there was no news on a sequel to the successful reboot and it looks like due to the merger of Vicarious Visions, the developer behind the game, into Blizzard, they didn’t move forward with a sequel that would’ve adapted the third and fourth entry of the franchise according to Tony Hawk on a live stream from Twitch streamer andyTHPS.
That was the plan. Even up until the release date of this, we were going 3 and 4. And then Vicarious got kind of absorbed and then they were looking for other developers and then it was over.Tony Hawk
He goes on to say that they did want to move forward with the project and were actively seeking pitches from other studios to adapt the sequel. Sadly, it just didn’t come together as they couldn’t find anyone that was the right fit to continue Vicarious Visions’ work.
They were trying to find someone to do 3 and 4, but they didn’t trust anyone the way they did Vicarious. So, they took other pitches from other studios. Like what would you do with THPS titles but they didn’t like anything they heard and that was it.Tony Hawk
So, it looks like we shouldn’t expect a sequel from the remake, which is an incredible shame given the excitement around the return of the franchise. The market is swamped with many mergers and acquisitions that projects are being left on the cutting room floor, which makes it even more bitter that Vicarious was fused with Blizzard in 2021. But, who knows if another opportunity comes to adapt the game.
