Activision Announces
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2x for Xbox
January 08, 2001


Santa Monica, CA – January 6, 2001 – Activision, Inc. today announced that an enhanced version of its best-selling video game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 will be the company’s first action-sports title to ship for the Xbox™ video game console. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2x for Xbox is slated to ship among the first wave of launch titles in fall 2001, and is one of six games that Activision currently has in various stages of planning and development for the new console platform.

"Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2x will set the standard for sports gaming on the Xbox with its stunning graphics, smooth animations and refined gameplay. The online capabilities that we are including in the product will introduce the social aspects of skateboarding to the brand for the first time," said Ron Doornink, President and COO, Activision, Inc. "We have been working closely with Microsoft to develop a broad portfolio of games for the Xbox that take full advantage of the platform’s sophisticated graphics, audio and multiplayer features."

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2x for Xbox is being designed to take full advantage of the platform’s technical capabilities, as well as continuing the standard of quality for which the brand is known. The game will feature the franchise’s signature gameplay and intuitive controls, in addition to more populated environments, additional levels, realistic special effects and smoother lifelike animations. The inclusion of online, multiplayer gameplay and tournament hosting will further bring the skateboarding experience to life.

"It’s incredibly exciting to have a title as popular as Tony Hawk Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 coming to the Xbox and being specifically designed to take advantage of the console’s power," said J Allard, general manager Xbox platform and third-party relations. "We are working closely with Activision to help them create a game that leverages the awesome gameplay the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series is known for, while at the same time taking the title to new heights by utilizing the advanced technology found only in the Xbox."

Activision’s blockbuster action-sports hit Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 has been a best-selling game since the title launched in September 2000. The game rocketed to the #1 spot after just five days in distribution and has remained a top-selling video game.
