Potential spoilers for a secret character follow!Posted on Reddit images of the character Officer Dick have been found in the game files, with the face model now seemingly based on Jack Black.
Officer Dick appeared in the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games and later in the 2012 HD remake as a secret skater, suggesting Jack Black may be unlockable in the remake when certain criteria have been fulfilled.
Jack Black’s involvement with the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater remake has previously been teased on Jack Black’s YouTube channel, Jablinski Games. Black also made a surprise appearance in a video for the skateboarding YouTube channel The Berrics, which involved Tony Hawk interviewing “The Original THPS Cast,” suggesting he was involved in the remake in some capacity.
This leaked image seems to confirm that he will be featured in the game in some capacity when it launches on September 4, 2020, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
It was revealed last week that the game will modify the name of the “Mute” grab skate trick in honour of its original creator. If you picked up the demo to train up before release, check out our trick list to get the most out of your two minutes with The Birdman.
