Robomodo CEO Josh Tsui recently spoke to Gameasutra about the success of the recently released Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD and how it is the first step in the revival of the once proud Activision franchise.
While smaller in scope that previous entries in the series, Tsui says that the downloadable title was meant to demonstrate the series comeback potential. "The prospect of a fuller game is definitely on the table -- it's just a matter of when and how," he said.
"We were given the right amount [of resources] based on the scope of [Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD], but obviously we would always want more to go bigger," Tsui said. "I don't think hits these days look the same as they did back in 1999 or 2000, so it would be great to see the Tony Hawk franchise do interesting things on a variety of platforms."
Tsui also revealed that Activision was somewhat hesitant about bringing back Tony Hawk but the smaller size of Robomodo’s game made it easier to get the green light.
