Analyst: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 to Sell A Minimum of 5 Million Units - SalesWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 01 September 2020 / 4,594 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.

The Limited-Edition 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.
- 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.
