Professional skateboarder Lizzie Armanto says that a new Tony Hawk’s Pro skater game is in development. During an appearance on The Nine Club podcast (via GamesRadar+) in October, Armanto was asked about her appearance in Pro Skater 5, before telling her hosts that “he’s coming out with another one, and I’ll be in that too.”
That particular clip - originally just after the two-hour mark - was scrubbed from a number of versions of the podcasts, but remained in place on Soundcloud. Until last night, at least, when that version was also edited - the ‘fixed’ offering now features an impressive non-sequitur where Armanto’s comment should have been.
The deleted clip adds a healthy dose of authenticity to rumours that first surfaced late last week. In a tweet on Sunday, known industry leaker Sabi suggested that “Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 had demos/prototypes remade.” Without confirmation from Activision, it’s worth taking all this with a healthy pinch of salt, especially since last year, Tony Hawk himself said he was “no longer working” with the publisher.
