In “Time to Play Clean Up” news, Activision has gone ahead and confirmed what legendary skater Tony Hawk already Tweeted to the world earlier in the week: Tony Hawk: Shred is the next installment in the ironically downhill sliding skating franchise.
In addition to telling everyone what they already knew, Activision told Joystiq that “more details will be revealed in the coming months.” The big question at this point is whether Shred is the sequel to the abominable Tony Hawk: Ride that’s in the works or an entirely new game.
Given that Shaun White is doing a skateboarding game, I’m going to say Shred will be a snowboarding/skateboarding combo title that will require two board peripherals to play, because the peripheral-only requirement was so popular the first time around. And what’s better than one? Two, of course!
