The release date has been confirmed for 4 September, 2020.
The game is confirmed to be on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games.

Tony Hawk's backward compatibility on PS5/Series X?
We are waiting to hear about if there will be a next-gen console version of the game optimized for the upcoming powerhouse consoles.
Given Microsoft's Smart Delivery and the backward compatibility, however, players will be able to enjoy it on the new consoles regardless.
The trailer is just as spine-tingling as you'd expect.
With a soundtrack that brings you right back to the originals and the rumble of the wheels on concrete this game immediately feels like a hit.
Speaking of the music, a lot of the original soundtrack is returning to bring you right back into the late 90s.
With a Spotify playlist already made and the room for more tracks that we all know and associate with the game, it looks like this will be the rare video game you don't mute.
We also know that some of the original skaters will be returning.
