Licenced Songs

TROUBLEMAKERS: The Death Set might have just leaked Pro Skater 6

But why exactly do we suspect this to be a new Pro Skater game?

Sabi’s leak

Last November we reported that Serial leaker Sabi (@New_WabiSabi) took to Twitter to reveal that early prototype remakes of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 were shared around Activision’s various offices in secret. 

Sabi discusses the question of whether all of the hype is over a remake, or if it is a brand new addition to the series.

That said, the remakes may only be test demos and a full sequel is what’s actually being planned.

Take note that there has been no evidence shared as of yet, however, Sabi is a pretty reliable source of information.

However, combined with the latest news from The Death Set, the possibility of a new Tony Hawk Pro Skater game is becoming increasingly likely.
