    Tony Hawk's dev Neversoft closes doors

    The closure of a studio is never something to celebrate, but at least the Neversoft team went out in a (quite literal) blaze of glory.

    The Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero developer was closed today and the team is being merged with Infinity Ward, as announced back in May.

    The new mega-studio will presumably be dedicated to Call of Duty, which is being handled by Sledgehammer Games this year while Infinity Ward bulks up. With Treyarch still tied to the franchise, Activision is now operating a three-year development cycle for the franchise.

    Develop has more details.
    Source

    I'll always remember them for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and 4. What was your favorite Tony Hawk game to play?

    End of an era, really. Two, without doubt. School II was an absolute marvel. Two's followed closely by three for me. It was mammoth and was really a step-up in many respects.

    They lost their way with the last few games.
    I own the first game and played it to death and loved it, it inspired many of my friends to take up skateboarding. I played the demo for the sequel a huge amount at friends house, we would spend hours playing MArseille which is a top notch skatepark, but never I bought it myself because by the time it released I was more of a BMX rider.

    My favorite is THUG followed by THPS2 but I love them all up to THAW then stopped caring. The Tony Hawk games after Proving Ground weren't even by Neversoft, were they? I enjoyed THPSHD despite all the BS bugs too.

    Damn. Many great times with Neversoft games. Extreme sports just aren't as popular as they used to be I guess.

    Yeah, Proving Ground was their last Tony Hawk game. I remember being much more interested in EA's Skate but eventually grew bored of it too.

    The eyeball with the spear through it was a pretty cool logo.

    This one really hit me in the gut when I read about it earlier. I LOVED Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 and 4. Hell, 4 is the reason I got into rock music when I was younger.

    Neversoft also developed the glorious Spider-Man game. If you guys haven't played it, do yourself a favor and give it a go. Better than any one of the modern games (although whether or not it's better than the first movie game is debatable).

    Depends if you were into Guitar Hero. They also made GUN but I've never played it. Apparently it's awesome.
