New Tony Hawk game coming to iOS this summer

There were rumors months ago that there was a new Tony Hawk skateboarding game in development. Now we know what it is and the news is very disappointing, at least in my opinion.

Tony Hawk’s Shred Session will be free on iOS platforms later this summer. It will be a line-based runner, not the revival of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater that most fans wanted.

You perform tricks in this game by just swiping your finger on the touch screen. Yup, this is how far the once mighty Tony Hawk franchise has fallen sadly.

Activision, if you’re listening, please reboot Pro Skater with a new installment on Xbox One and PS4. We’re willing to give it a chance if you’re willing to put in the work necessary to live up to the series’s legendary history.
