The 21-year-old Tony Hawk Pro Skater game franchise is getting an upgrade this year and this time developer Activision is taking us back to THPS 1 and 2, the first two titles in the series. However, it will be remastered with high-end graphics and better gameplay. Tony Hawk Pro Skater's first and second version came back in 1999 and 2000 on PlayStation. However, the franchise got 14 more iterations after that, excluding Tony Hawk's Skate Jam, which was made available on Android and iOS, and was also the last title using the popular skateboarder's name before the THPS 1+2.

The new title was announced earlier this week and will be coming really soon. So if you are excited about it, here's everything you should need to know.

-Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 will be released on September 4, 2020. This is also the time around which we will see other popular titles dropping including the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles.
