Activision confirms Tony Hawk: Shred

Sounds like it's out this year.

Activision has confirmed that its new Tony Hawk game is called Shred.

"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," the publisher told Joystiq.

We assume that the new game will be out later this year. There's no official word on that, but if they're talking about it "in the coming months" then it's very unlikely that it's more than 6-8 months away.

Then again, this presumably isn't the point in time that Activision originally planned to talk about Shred, and that's thanks to Tony Hawk himself.

Earlier this week the Birdman tweeted: "Tony Hawk: Shred. There, I said it. Actually, I named it. Somewhere a PR team is reeling." The post was rapidly removed but not before the internet noticed.

Tony Hawk: Shred almost certainly uses the skateboard peripheral developed for last year's dreadful Tony Hawk: Ride, and hopefully to better effect.
