Analyst: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 to Sell A Minimum of 5 Million Units - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 September 2020 / 5,131 Views

Independent video game industry analyst Benji-Sales on Twitter says the recently announced remastered collection, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2, will sell a minimum of five million units even if the game is mediocre. The game has a chance of selling more if it is good enough. 

"BTW the absolute floor in sales for Tony Hawk 1+2 across platforms is 5+ million and that's if its mediocre," said Benji. "If it's good high end sales potential is huge."

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC via the Epic Games Store on September 4, 2020. Pre-orders will include an early access demo of the Warehouse level.

Here is an overview of the game:

Dropping in on September 4, 2020, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 is set to bring back original levels, pro skaters, tricks, modes, and songs from the iconic soundtrack, as well as amp up the experience with new ways to play including online Multiplayer.

Same Tony, New Tricks

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 will feature the full original roster of pro skaters from the turn of the 21st century. That includes Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, Bucky Lasek, Elissa Steamer, Kareem Campbell, Andrew Reynolds, Bob Burnquist, Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen, Jamie Thomas, Rune Glifberg, Chad Muska… and of course, Tony Hawk.

These skaters all come with their own Special Moves—from Geoff Rowley’s Darkside Grind to Tony Hawk’s legendary 900—and have learned a few new tricks over the past two decades, including the Revert, Lip Tricks, and the Wall Plant, allowing you to pull off incredible combos like never before.

The remaster will also feature all the original levels from the first two games in the franchise, from the Warehouse to The Bullring, as well as many of the songs from the original games to amp you up while you go for that Sick Score. Those levels can be played solo with goals old and new, with a buddy for local co-op, or online with original multiplayer game modes.

All of this will be presented in stunning 4K resolution with updated and enhanced graphics, running at a frame rate crisper than a perfect 50-50 grind: 60 frames per second.

Create-A-Skater and Create-A-Park Return, Revamped

Rather carve up your own park with a skater you created? Create-A-Skater and Create-A-Park are back with some dope features added in.

Create-A-Park will feature a robust editing suite, enabling an incredible level of customization to create the skate park of your wildest imaginations. These parks can be shared online with friends.

After you create a park, why not create yourself—or a friend… or one gnarly looking poser—in Create-A-Skater? With plenty of customization options, including some that feature iconic skating and street brands, you’ll be able to express a crazy amount of creativity just in your custom skater alone.

The Limited-Edition Birdhouse Deck

For the ultimate fan, a collector’s edition will be available for the suggested retail price of $99.99 in the United States, complete with the digital deluxe content and a limited-run Birdhouse deck.

The deck features the iconic Falcon 2 design, reissued exclusively for the collector’s edition. Although the deck is fully skateable, you may not want to hit too many gnarly grinds with it, as it also features a printed autograph from the birdman himself.

Pre-Order Information

  • Digital Pre-Order Incentive – Those who digitally pre-order Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will receive access to the Warehouse Demo ahead of the games’ official launch. Expect to catch some air in the Warehouse level during the Summer, with an exact date to be announced later.

It's selling for $40, so even 3 million copies sold would probably be good.

I don't think so. Too many good games on Switch to make people settle for this one.

For the Switch... they should port the Dreamcast versions. They could handle those in glorious 1080p/60 fps.

I mean, they could sell more if they sold it on Battlenet, Steam and EGS, as well as GoG.

Even Steam alone would do... Crash N.Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignated Trilogy were both on Steam and suddenly THPS 1 & 2 remake is Epic Games Store only...

It's that short term cash injection. It's basically free money, and we all know Bobby loves cash with only one string attached.

They could have easily sold this on Battlenet and reap 100% of each sale, since they own both the IP, the studio and Battlenet. But I guess Bobby knows something we aren't seeing here.

huh? Tony Hawk is still popular? Are they sure? I mean, I'm pretty sure if they were still capable of selling that well they wouldn't have stopped making them... right?
