Activision confirm Tony Hawk: SHRED

No more RIDES, please

Activision have been forced into confirming the new Tony Hawk title 'Shred', when former skating star blurting out the news on Twitter.

Tony Hawk has since deleted the offending tweet but the damage was already done.

Activision confirmed by way of Joystiq that Tony was indeed correct and Shred will be the next game in the skater's eponymous game series.

An Activision spokesperson said: "We can confirm we've given a name to the next Tony Hawk game - Tony Hawk: SHRED, and more details will be revealed in the coming months."

Fingers crossed that the series will return to traditional controllers, rather than sticking with the disastrous board controller that came with RIDE.

Of course, Tony Hawk is not to be confused with the comedian Tony Hawks, who travelled around Ireland with a fridge.
