News broke today that suggests that it may be time – FINALLY – for a fifth entry in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise, when a caterer, Joe Youkhan, posted an image to Instagram appearing to confirm Tony Hawk 5. Youkhan is pictured posing amongst a group of tables decked out for a meal, within a half-pipe, with a projected image of a Tony Hawk 5 logo in the background.
As you can see, Youkhan tags Hawk himself in the Instagram posting, which has since been deleted.
Hawk himself claimed that a new game was in development in late 2014, and recently doubled down on the claim, so it seems like a fairly good bet that this is the real deal. As a huge fan of the series, I’ll be waiting with baited breath for a confirmation, which it seems we can probably expect soon, possibly as early as tonight. Now let’s just hope this one won’t come with an awful skateboard peripheral.
