Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 coming to Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is coming to three new platforms this year. A next-gen version of the game will land on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 in March, while a Switch version is coming later this year.

The game is a remake of the first two games in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. When it originally launched on last-gen consoles last September, Activision didn’t reveal any plans to bring the game to new consoles or give it a next-gen upgrade, making today’s announcement a welcome surprise.

While the game will launch on Nintendo Switch in 2021, it doesn’t have a firm release date. The news comes just one day after Nintendo and Tony Hawk himself teased the port on Twitter with a humorous exchange.

Plans for the next-gen version of the game are more immediate. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will hit both Xbox Series X/S and PS5 on March 26. The game will feature updates like support for 4K, 120 frames per second, spatial audio, and cross-gen progression. The PS5 version of the game will receive haptic feedback via the DualSense controller.

The upgrade isn’t free for all players, however. Those who own the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game will be able to upgrade free of charge, but those who bought the standard version will need to pay extra. Those who already own the game can pay $10 to upgrade to the new version and get access to the game on PS5 or Xbox Series X/S. Meanwhile, those who purchased the game physically on PS4 won’t be able to upgrade to the PS5 digital edition. A Digital Cross-Gen Bundle will be available for $50 on both next-gen consoles.

If you thought more Tony Hawk games would be remastered after the success of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, those dreams wiped out a long time ago. The development of a Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 + 4 remake was reportedly canceled after Vicarious Visions merged with Blizzard.

This development came out of a chat between Twitch streamer AndyTHPS and none other than Tony Hawk during Monday night's broadcast. The legendary skateboarder told the streamer that there were plans to remake Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 + 4, but those plans fell through when Activision Blizzard decided to completely absorb Vicarious Visions in April, a process that had been in the works since the beginning of the year.
