Will Tony Hawk Pro Skater Remastered feature on the Xbox Series X? – Consoles, Benefits of Next-gen, Release date and More!
Will we see the Remaster of such an iconic title release on the next-gen consoles later this year?
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was one of the biggest games on the original PlayStation.
With a huge fanbase, there was a massive rise in the number of skateboarding fans because of the Pro Skater series.
Hopefully, with this remaster, we can see another big jump in the amount of skating fans.
There has been no information for a Mobile and Switch release, so this seems very unlikely.
However, we may see Activision look into publishing a version of the game on these systems at a later date.
Benefits of Next-Gen
The Next-gen consoles are releasing later this year (Xbox Series X and PS5)!
This will deliver a more seamless experience for games due to the substantially improved software and hardware.
This will improve the experience due to the improved immersion and controllers, like the DualShock 5 releasing with the PlayStation.
Vicarious Visions have decided to release THPS remastered on current-gen consoles meaning we won’t be getting any of the amazing bonuses that come with the specs of the Xbox Series X and PS5.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Remastered releases on 4 September 2020.
The Next-gen consoles are expected to release a few weeks after this, so the game will only release on current-gen until we hear anything else.
Hopefully, Microsoft and Sony will implement immediate backwards compatibility at the release of the next-gen consoles so that it’s still possible to access the game.
