The long-running Tony Hawks series looks to be in for a huge overhaul, as Activision pledges to reinvent the series.


Speaking in a recent earnings call, Activision president and CEO Mike Griffith said: "We are also planning to release our reinvention of Tony Hawk with a very innovative and interactive game that lets consumers experience the thrill of skateboarding like never before.

"Our goal from the start was to reinvent this franchise back to its roots where we engaged a broad, mass market consumer, and we feel good about what this game can do," he added (via Seeking Alpha).

"We will also unveil specifics at E3," concluded Griffith.
