In the realm of games that cost over $100 released by Activision this holiday season (we're counting four including the Prestige Edition Modern Warfare 2
pack), Tony Hawk Ride
wasn't one that we thought of as a hot ticket item
. The man who lent his name to the series, however, has a different take, saying in a recent interview with GameSpot UK
on the prospect of a sequel to Ride
that "We have already started that process, but who knows what the future holds."
Additionally, like multiple people
developer Robomodo have already intimated, Hawk confirms plans to put the game's board to use in other places – specifically, the woefully underserved
snowboarding and surfing game genres. Hawk even speaks of resurrecting one-shot last-gen game Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer
, saying, "I always thought that Kelly Slater's
] was an underrated title for the PlayStation 2 ... I thought that people didn't really give it the attention it deserved." And us, well, we're still hoping that someone makes a bicycle peripheral so that we can finally
get the reboot of Downhill Domination
that we've been waiting for.
