Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 has been widely regarded as an excellent remastering of two classic skateboarding games, and now Activision Blizzard has boasted that the good buzz has coincided with great sales.
In a tweet, the company says that it’s now the fastest game to reach 1 million sales in franchise history. It didn’t mention exactly how fast the game cracked that record, but it’s only been out for just over a week.
Critics have been largely positive on the remastered Tony Hawk, finding it a return to form that captures the feeling of the classics with some welcome new additions like trick elements from later games. It also gave the stages themselves a fresh layer of polish, sometimes with clever twists like the abandoned mall or a school that is empty due to COVID. The game is also coming at the end of a console cycle and is priced at $40, which likely helped it reach its big sales numbers.
