After almost three agonizing years of waiting, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, the excellent remake of the first two classic Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games, has been announced for a Steam release on October 3. Ever since its launch in 2020, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 has been an Epic Games Store exclusive for PC Gamers. The game never even made the jump to Activision-Blizzard's exclusive Battle.net launcher, which struck many as odd.
Since then though fans have been waiting for the game's great PC port to make its way to Steam and be free of the EGS exclusivity limbo. But after 3 years it'd be safe to say that many had given up hope of a re-release. Especially with the follow up, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3+4, being canceled and developer Vicarious Visions being absorbed by Blizzard. So to see 1+2 come to Steam is a pleasant surprise.
We know the Steam Deck can handle 60FPS in this game from testing done on the EGS version, and Activision's Steam Deck support has been pretty great as long as it isn't Call of Duty. So I think it's safe to expect Steam Deck support either Day 1 or Week 1, which is pretty exciting given the Switch version has a 30 fps cap and that's the only other portable version so far.
You can wishlist Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 on Steam now.
