Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3

Rumours surrounding a potential 2020 comeback for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater video game series have been doing the rounds since last November, and while it made sense to remain cautiously optimistic at first, fresh pieces of evidence are starting to make those early claims seem very believable indeed.

As you may remember, back in March, Australian punk band The Death Set revealed that it had licensed five songs to a new Tony Hawk 2020 game. We were fairly confident that such a comment probably shouldn't have been made at the time - and sure enough, it was soon deleted - and it seemed like an upcoming game release was well and truly out of the bag.

Fast forward to today, and the supposed 2020 Tony Hawk game has been mentioned again. This time, professional skateboarder Jason Dill talks about the game in an interview with The Nine Club, going as far as to say that he's added his very own board for players to select in-game. You can see the interview here (thanks, @Nibellion) but be warned that it contains some bad language.

It certainly sounds like we're getting a new Tony Hawk game, then, but it still hasn't been officially revealed at the time of writing. Hopefully it'll only be a matter of time before we hear about it properly.
