Tony Hawk said during a recent Twitch stream that the remasters of Pro Skater 3+4 are no longer happening. Developer Vicarious Visions was absorbed into Activision Blizzard at the beginning of 2021, renamed Blizzard Albany, and then tasked with supporting Diablo II: Resurrected. Activision took pitches from other studios but felt that none were right for the project. “Who knows? Maybe when all the dust settles we’ll figure it out,” Hawk said in the hopes they could still happen.

“I wish I could say that we had something in the works, but you know Vicarious Visions kinda got disbanded and Activision’s going through all their stuff so I don’t know what’s next,” Hawk said. “That was the plan, even up until the release date of [Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2], we were going 3 and 4. And then Vicarious got kind of absorbed and they were looking for other developers and then … it was over.”

“The truth is they were trying to find someone to do 3 and 4 but they just didn’t really trust anyone the way they did Vicarious,” Hawk said. “So they took other pitches from other studios […] They didn’t like anything they heard and that was it.”

  1. I still haven't played the 1+2 remaster. For the original series, I stopped after 3. I purchased 2 for Dreamcast from the local high school bootlegger, $4 if I recall the correct price. I spent a lot of time in the level editor for 2 and 3.
