Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3+4 was in development until the merger between Vicarious Visions and Blizzard » False Gamer

As confirmed by the Tony Hawk, Vicarious Visions was developing some remasters of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 y 4 (which would have gone out together, as happened with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2). However, he explains that they scrapped the project the moment the developer merged with Blizzard Entertainment.

Above you have the clip in which Hawk, during an interview with andyTHPS on Twitch, pointed out that the plan was to release this second batch of reissues “even until the release date 1 + 2”. “We were going to do the same thing with 3+4, but then Vicarious got absorbed and they were looking for other developers, and then it was all over,” the skater said of what became known as Blizzard Albany, and has since supported other projects such as Diablo 2: Resurrection.

“They [Activision] they were actually…the truth is they were trying to find someone to do 3 and 4, but they just didn’t trust anyone the way they did with Vicarious. So they took other releases from other studios and asked them something like “what would you do with THPS titles?” And they didn’t like anything they heard, and that was it,” Hawk said. “I wish there was some way to get it back. I mean, who knows, when all the dust settles maybe we’ll work it out. You never know. I never imagined that we would do 1 and 2 twenty years later, so… ».

Now that the IP is in the process of being absorbed by the Microsoft conglomerate, on the other hand, it would not be unreasonable for those at Xbox to decide to resurrect these remasters once the purchase is formalized, taking into account the value it could bring to your brand. .
