Announcement leaks come from all over the video games industry, and they’re often denied by the Powers That Be. This one though, Activision might have a hard time arguing: Tony Hawk himself has confirmed that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD will be releasing next month.
“Yeah I said it,” the pro-skater posted, ending months of speculation.

Bucking the trend a little, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD is not just a simple HD revamp/reboot of the original game. Instead, it’s a selection of handpicked levels from both the 1999 release Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, which originally launched in 2000.
We’re expecting an official announcement from Activision and Robomodo any day now (hello, E3?), but keep an eye on both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade over the next month or so, just in case it slips beneath the radar.
