Gamers haven't seen much of the Tony Hawk series lately, and we're probably all okay with that. The last Hawk game was Ride, a noble, yet poorly conceived, effort that put gamers on a wheel-less skateboard peripheral (and, more frequently, on their posteriors). That game arrived two years ago, in late 2009, which means that another Hawk announcement at some point was basically inevitable.
Enter Tony Hawk's (the man, not the brand) Twitter feed, which the superstar skateboarder took to yesterday to reveal that he'll be announcing the "upcoming release of something new" on Saturday. He also points out that the VGAs are this Saturday, writing, "Coincidence? I think not."
Clever, Tony. You sly dog, you. As long as the next Hawk game gives us back our gamepads, we're good.
