In 1999, the first game in the ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater’ saga was released for the PlayStation, it was initially a risky bet as it was unknown how it would be received by the public.
24 years later, the franchise has found success with four video games named after the famous skateboarder, several remakes and spin-offs. Now, Hawk revealed the amount he earned by lending his likeness to Activision.

The pro skateboarder spoke about the attractive figure he gained by lending his likeness in a podcast following the release of the fourth game in the video game franchise.
“He said to me, ‘We’re going to launch the fourth game, the last three are still in the top 10,'” the athlete said, and then the producer handed it to him.A check for four million dollars.”

According to Hawk, this corresponded to “annual royalties,” so it wouldn’t be total. This news was met with great surprise, as he did not expect sales to exceed one million dollars.
