Activision was going to release a remake of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 + 4, but couldn't find the right studio

In 2020, Activision released Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, a remake of the first two parts of the skateboarding sim Pro Skater.
The game received very good reviews, with sales showing records within the series, so the logical next step is to release Pro Skater 3 + 4.
And Activision, it turns out, really planned to do so.This is what Tony Hawk himself said in a recent streamer:That was the plan.
Even before [Pro Skater 1 + 2] came out, we were going to do 3 + 4.
But then Vicarious Visions got absorbed, we started looking for other developers.
And then it was over.\u003C...>Activision tried to find new people, but it didn't trust anyone as much as Vicarious.
[The publisher] started looking at offers from other studios to see what they could do with a THPS project.
And Activision didn't like any of the suggestions.
That was the end of it.Vicarious Visions was the developer of Pro Skater 1 + 2 and was considered a separate studio in the Activision Blizzard family, but in 2021 they started a merger with Blizzard and became Blizzard Albany.
Since then, Vicarious Visions has had no projects of its own - it only helps with what Blizzard does.
The studio could not remake 3 + 4 either, but Tony Hawk is not discouraged, since it's not sure how things will turn out in the future, and perhaps there will be a chance for a new remake after all.
After all, Pro Skater 1 + 2 seemed like a pipe dream to Hawke a while back.
