Skateboarder Tony Hawk appears to have announced the name of his next videogame - and then tried to de-announce it.

"Tony Hawk: Shred. There, I said it," he wrote on his Twitter page. "Actually, I named it. Somewhere a PR team is reeling."

The Tweet has since been deleted, but not before the likes of Kotaku took a snapshot.

So what are the chances Hawk was referring to a sequel to Tony Hawk: Ride, the skateboard peripheral-controlled effort released last year? Pretty good, we'd wager. Here's hoping it's a bit better than that game.
