Tony Hawk talks check amount received for Pro Skater games: ‘changed my life’

Tony Hawk, the legendary American skateboarder, recently commented in an interview with the podcast The Nine Club, about the financial return of its series of games, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.

When asked how much money he had already made from the games, he replied:

“I will say this. When the fourth game was about to be released, my contact at Activision [empresa responsável pelos jogos] called me to lunch in Los Angeles when I was there one day. […] And he was like, ‘What’s happening is this: We’re going to release the fourth game now, and the last three are still in the Top 10 sellers. The first will enter [em uma promoção] to be sold at a lower price but with much more volume. So things are way bigger than you ever thought.’ And he handed me a check for four million dollars.”

Indeed, $4 million is an extremely high figure. However, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4 was one of the most successful games in the series, in addition to other games being released after it, such as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, a remastering of the classics for the most current consoles.

And that’s what, during the chat, he said that he expected, in a very optimistic scenario, that he would earn something around US$ 1 million.

Overall, the series THPS has sold over 1.4 billion games.

One of the main highlights of the series pro skater it was always the soundtrack. Even recently, the skater even made a celebration of the song “Superman”, one of the most remarkable in the history of the game, and appeared as a vocalist.
