While we have known for some time that a new Tony Hawk’s skating game is in the works, an event caterer may have inadvertently leaked its title on photo sharing website Instagram.
Earlier this evening, Chef Joe Youkhan, owner of the Tasting Spoon, a restaurant in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, posted a photo to Instagram (since removed) showing a half-pipe set up as the location for a brand summit for the skating legend.
In the background of the image is a projector screen with a logo featuring the text ‘Tony Hawk 5’, suggesting publisher Activision’s next title in the half-pipe may well be Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. It would be the first main series game in the franchise since 2002.
Back in January, Hawk took to the stage during Sony’s keynote presentation at CES 2015, where he announced that skating fans could expect “a new console game this year – on PlayStation 4, of course”. Activision later clarified that the title would not be platform-exclusive.
What exactly is the decorated skater planning to reveal at the special event in California? Let the speculation begin in the comments below.
