Gamers have been loudly complaining about the many bugs and glitches that have plagued Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 since its PS4 and Xbox One launch on September 29. Publisher Activision and developer Robomodo have been working hard on a patch for the game, but it appears to be taking longer than they thought.
Because of the added resources needed to fix the game, the launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 has officially been delayed. Originally scheduled to be available in stores on November 10, Activision attempted to explain the reasoning behind the delay in a statement released to Eurogamer:
We are working closely with our developers to address the issues identified by our community. Our development resources are fully focused on fixes and content updates for PS4 and Xbox One, so we have decided to delay the release of THPS5 on PS3 and X360. We will update the community when we have more specific information about a release date for PS3 and Xbox 360.
While the PS3/Xbox 360 version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is still in the works, I won’t be surprised if it suffers the same fate (a quiet cancellation) as the last-gen version of Mortal Kombat X.
