Is a new Tony Hawk's Pro Skater in the works?

In a Youtube interview, the drummer of the early 2000s skate punk band CKY has stated the band was contracted to appear in an upcoming Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Game.

This perhaps isn't the most surprising news. While it's only a rumour right now, the surprise sales success of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 remake last year have likely peaked the attention of Activision executives who had left the franchise alone since the fifth entry in the franchise, rushed out to keep the license in the publisher's hands, was critically panned and appeared on many worst game of the year lists.

Possibly hoping to follow the same model they took with Crash Bandicoot of following up a remake's sales success with a full-fledged sequel, we can only hope that CYK is just one part of a skate-rock soundtrack accompanying a new Pro Skater release in the near future.
