After launching again in 2020 on PC by way of the Epic Video games Retailer, Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 1+2 is lastly (three years later…) making its option to Steam in October.

Solid your thoughts again to September 4, 2020. The covid-19 pandemic was nonetheless a brand new and horrible downside, the PS5 and Xbox Collection X/S consoles had but to be launched, and the world acquired a brand new Tony Hawk recreation within the type of Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 1+2. It was an excellent recreation that recreated the texture of these older titles, however did so utilizing superior visuals. THPS 1+2 additionally launched completely on the Epic Video games Retailer on PC. After which, uh, properly three years handed, covid remains to be a factor, and it appeared like Activision had forgotten all about THPS 1+2 or releasing it on Steam. However now, both a actually lengthy unique deal has expired or somebody at Activision remembers they may make extra cash by bringing the final good Tony Hawk recreation to extra gamers by way of a Steam model.

On Tuesday, the official Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Twitter account introduced, with little fanfare or hype, that the favored remake would launch on Steam on October 3. The sport already has a Steam retailer web page, and gamers can wishlist THPS 1+2 forward of subsequent week’s Steam launch.

It’s unclear why now, after three years and a number of radio silence, Activision has determined to deliver THPS 1+2 to the PC storefront utilized by most gamers. Kotaku has reached out to the writer for more information.

I suppose it’s attainable the corporate signed some three-year take care of Epic, however that looks as if far too lengthy for this type of exclusivity deal, particularly for a comparatively low-key recreation. It’s additionally attainable that Activision realized that THPS 1+2 is an ideal match for the Steam Deck, and placing the sport on Valve’s storefront makes it simpler for individuals to purchase and play it on the favored transportable PC. Or perhaps any individual simply stumbled upon a sticky be aware in a desk and went, “Oh shit, proper!” and hit a button.

For now, we simply don’t know. (It’s clearly as a result of they have been fearful gamers would turn out to be confused, and attempt to screw vehicles to their Steam Decks -Ed.)

Personally, I’m fairly completely happy to see THPS 1+2 lastly coming to Steam. The concept of getting this recreation simply accessible on my Steam Deck—no bizarre launchers or tinkering required—sounds fantastic. And hey, perhaps this can be a signal Activision has plans to make extra Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater video games? In all probability not, however I can hope, proper?
