Bam Margera’s Brother May’ve Leaked One other Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater
Jess Margera is the drummer for the band CKY, and he’s additionally skateboarder Bam Margera’s older brother. He’s additionally the supply behind what could also be a leak for a future Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater sport.
Margera was on the Behind Closed Doorways podcast in April. In part of the dialog about being profitable as a musician, Margera talked about licensing music to issues like video video games as a supply of earnings. “Now touring is your fundamental earnings, and you actually need to attempt to get licensing offers, attempt to get in the place you possibly can on video video games or no matter, as a result of that’s one other strategy to make some cash,” Margera stated.
“I’m assuming you guys are on no less than one of many Tony Hawk video games, weren’t you?” Lopez, the interviewer asks.
“Yeah, and I consider we’re doing the brand new one popping out too,” Margera replies. CKY’s track “96 Fairly Bitter Beings” appeared on the Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 3 soundtrack again in 2001. You’ll be able to catch the dialog at round 39:00 within the video beneath.
It might be simple to write down off the remark as referring to final yr’s launch of Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 1 and a couple of—in any case, not everybody retains up carefully with the video games house—although Margera goes on to particularly reference the remake of the primary two video games. “I wager that was large information while you discovered that out,” Lopez says. Margera replies “Yeah, my son simply acquired a PS5 and he acquired the remaster of 1 and a couple of…” So Margera is clearly conscious of Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 1 and a couple of as a separate sport from no matter “new one popping out” he’s referencing. It’s additionally vital to notice that CKY shouldn’t be featured in 1 and a couple of in any respect.
Final yr, the band The Demise Set leaked the existence of an upcoming Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater sport on Fb, saying that that they had licensed 5 songs to “Tony Hawk 2020.” Curiously, Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 1 and a couple of didn’t characteristic The Demise Set in any respect regardless of including 37 new songs along with the unique soundtrack, so it’s unclear if their songs had been eliminated as punishment for leaking the sport, or if their music shall be part of a distinct sport arising later.
Margera’s feedback concerning the “new one popping out” may discuss with Activision remaking Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 3 and 4 in the identical manner they did the primary two. This would come with relicensing a majority of the unique music (much like what they did with 1 and a couple of), which might deliver CKY’s “96 Fairly Bitter Beings” from THPS3 into this hypothetical remake. Or would possibly Activision be laborious at work correcting the error of the final unique Tony Hawk sport—the ill-received Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 5—and making a brand new one which higher displays the traditional video games? In spite of everything, Crash Bandicoot 4 was an unique new Crash title that adopted the success of the N. Sane Trilogy.
Nevertheless, yet one more wrench within the works is Activision’s shuffling of studios to work on different flagship franchises. The writer merged Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 1 and a couple of developer Vicarious Visions into Blizzard to work solely on Blizzard video games transferring ahead—at the moment Diablo 2 Resurrected. Many different studios beneath the corporate umbrella are engaged on Name of Obligation. If Activision does have one other studio engaged on Tony Hawk’s video games proper now, it’s not clear precisely the place these hypothetical video games is likely to be in improvement.
