CKY may have revealed Tony Hawk’s remastered Pro Skater 3
While things looked grim for the Tony Hawk’s professional skater franchise when Vicarious Visions merged with Blizzard, it seems there was still hope for the series. The American rock band CKY (short for Camp Kill Yourself) may have revealed a Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 Remastered is in preparation.
In an episode of the Podcast Behind Closed Doors, CKY drummer Jess Margera was discussing how bands can make money in addition to album sales. âNow touring is your main income, and you have to really try to get licensing deals, trying to get into video games where you can or whatever, because that’s another way to make money. ‘money,’ says Margera.

The interviewer then asks if they were in one of the Tony hawk Games. Of course, the answer is yes, because CKY’s “96 Enough Bitter” was featured in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, which was released in 2001. However, it’s Margera’s answer to the question that begins to raise some questions.
âYeah, and I think we’re also doing the new one that’s coming out,â says Margera.
While one might think that Margera may have confused “the new one coming out” with last year Tony Hawk Professional Skater 1 + 2, This does not seem to be the case. In fact, he mentions the critically acclaimed remaster as his own product when the interviewer remarks how huge news it must have been for the group.
âYeah, my son just got a PS5 and he got the 1 and 2 remaster,â says Margera. “It’s so cool because the classic Tony hawks are so good and well laid out, but obviously the system is old and the graphics are not that good, so they have just been improved with the same principle and the graphics are amazing, âadds Margera of the remaster.

In view of the past remake, many songs from the soundtracks of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2, it seems that “96 quite bitter beings” could be fired for a potential Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 remaster. Of course, that could also be a brand new title, but CKY would seem like an odd licensing choice in 2021 given the band has only released one album since 2010.
While CKY only appeared in a Tony Hawk’s professional skater game, they are certainly reminiscent of the skate scene at that time. Named after the group, the CKY The video series featured figures like Bam Margera and Brandon DiCamillo performing wild stunts with skate footage. It is essentially the precursor of MTV Donkey.
