Tony Hawk: 'We Are Working on a New Game' No word on a developer yet.
by Mitch Dyer February 20, 2014
 
Update: Activision has confirmed its involvement with a new Tony Hawk project. A representative told IGN, "Activision can confirm that they have something in the works with Tony Hawk, more info is coming soon."
 

Original story:

 

A new Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game is in development.

 

While reminiscing about the  Pro Skater series on his Demolition Radio show on SiriusXM, Tony Hawk said, ?We?re working on a game, we are working on a game, it's pretty cool.? A co-host, likely referring to motion capture, followed up, ?It?s a whole suit you have to put on."

 

Hawk and his hosts didn't elaborate any further, but reiterated numerous times, "We are working on a game." No developer was specified, though Robomodo most recently developed Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD.

 

IGN has yet to receive a comment from Activision on the future of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

 

Hawk told IGN a couple years back that he'd love to see more of his series on "new consoles as they come."

Hopefully they learnt something from Black Box and EA's Skate (Y) Speaking of which, where is Skate 4? :p

 

Project 8 was probably the best TH game since THPS4, after that it was downhill IMO.

I found project 8 to be dire.

THPS2 was where it was at!

THPS2 is the undisputed king (along with it's soundtrack), but I loved the slow-mo feature ripped straight from this Girl team video.

 

Made me feel 15 again :wub:

Kick ass news.

I absolutely loved the trip down memory lane thanks to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD. One of the only games I fully 100% in a long, long time actually.
I would be absolutely content with the same exact gameplay as THPS 1 & 2 & 4 but just next gen graphics. I would absolutely love that to be honest.

 

Way I see it S.K.A.T.E. had the realistic crown down pat (I would love a new version of that as well) so I say just stick to what made the series successful to begin with. Over the top, fluid arcade skating.

 

One can hope.

We?re working on a mobile game now,? he said. ?We?re working on a game for mobile devices this year. We?ve never gone exclusively in that direction yet so I?m excited because, with the amount of time people are spending on their phones and their tablets playing games, we?ve never had our own game in that space so I?m excited to provide one finally.? - Hawk

 

Just because lots of people use a phone or a tablet doesn't mean a game should be made for it. It will probably be profitable, but it will no doubt be cumbersome to play. I can't imagine how you could have even remotely useful controls for a game like this.

 

Tablets and phones are fine for games with the simple inputs a touch screen allows (swipe, draw, etc.). Tilt controls are usually crap. On-screen controls, D-Pads and the like, are going to be looked back on as one of the most ridiculous input methods ever devised.

      Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a direct sequel to the original, comes out November 13
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Following the teaser from last week, today Activision announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is releasing November 13 on current-generation platforms. The title is incoming with a single-player campaign that will connect to the original Black Ops from 2010, as well as multiplayer and zombie modes. Check out the reveal trailer above.

      Here's how this entry's developers Treyarch and Raven Software described the story, which will take players across the globe to locales like East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, and Soviet-era Moscow:

      Meanwhile on the multiplayer front, Cold War will arrive with cross-platform play and cross-progression capabilities that extend across generations, letting players on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation join together for their head to head sessions. To unveil information about this portion, Activision will be hosting a dedicated multiplayer reveal on September 9 on the Call of Duty Twitch channel.

      However, confirming recent leaks, it was revealed today that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will not offer free next-gen upgrades, with a $69.99 Cross-Gen Bundle available for Xbox and PlayStation players if they also want to jump into the next-gen Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 console versions when they launch this holiday.

      The Standard Edition comes in at $59.99 and is available for pre-order now on PC via Battle.net, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. An open beta will be kicking off before launch too, and those who pre-order will get access to it earlier than everyone else.

      Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Cross-Gen Bundle suggests paid upgrade for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5
      by Asher Madan



      Last week, Activision officially revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Gameplay is expected to be showcased on August 26, 2020, with a strong focus on the campaign. However, it seems like preorder bundles have started to appear online and many users on Reddit and Twitter have posted images of a Cross-Gen Bundle for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

      The Cross-Gen Bundle seems like it's a special edition of the game that gives you an upgrade for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. The Standard Edition doesn't appear to feature any Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 enhancements. This means that you may have to pick up the Cross-Gen Bundle to experience Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with better visuals and possibly a higher frame rate on next-generation hardware.

      Maybe Activision will clarify its approach to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 tomorrow if preorders go live after the gameplay reveal. The existence of a Cross-Gen Bundle seems to indicate a paid upgrade, contrary to what other developers and publishers are doing with features like Xbox Smart Delivery.

      Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War unveiling set for August 26
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Call of Duty fans have uncovered a teaser trailer for the next entry in the yearly series, catch it above. A long trail of breadcrumbs left both in real life and in Warzone finally pointed towards this reveal, which confirms the game's title as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and also gives a date for the full reveal, August 26.

      The set up also seemingly confirms previous rumors and leaks, which said the series is going back to its roots - similar to the very successful Modern Warfare reboot -, rebooting the sub-franchise that has so far churned out four entries in the past 10 years. A single-player campaign is also expected this time, something that was missing from the 2018 entry Black Ops IIII.

      As previously confirmed, Treyarch is the lead developer on this entry while Raven Software is providing support.

      As seen on the teaser, Activision and developers will be unveiling Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on August 26. Interestingly, the teaser description points towards the announcement happening in Verdansk, the free-to-play Warzone's setting. The trailer could arrive as part of an in-game event that players can watch together, similar to Fortnite events.

      Next Call of Duty to be called Black Ops Cold War according to new leaks
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The Call of Duty factory of Activision is slated to pump out a new entry this year, and just like in previous years, leaks are starting to happen regarding the name and setting. According to a new report by Eurogamer that corroborates a leak by prominent Call of Duty leakster Okami, the upcoming title will be named Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

      A separate report from last year stated that the 2020 Call of Duty's reigns had been handed over to Treyarch, moving the original developers Raven Software and Sledgehammer to support studio positions. That report also said the game had a historical Cold War setting, taking the series back to its roots much like the massively popular Modern Warfare reboot by Infinity Ward.

      The Call of Duty: Black Ops series began its journey in 2010, making this a good year to bring back the popular sub-franchise that spawned four entries over the years. The fourth game, stylized as Black Ops IIII, from 2018 did not deliver a single-player experience, and instead arrived with co-op zombie, multiplayer, and battle royale modes. We will have to see what the triple studio initiative will deliver this time if the reports are accurate.

      The free-to-play Call of Duty Warzone will tease players with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War hints until a full announcement later, per the Eurogamer report. Barring delays, the next Call of Duty should land around October or November of this year.
