Whatever happened to THPS2?

I tried to use the search to find this topic, but could not find it. Every time I've ever made a thread here, someone tells me "it's already been posted", and "to use the search next time". So in conclusion to this paragraph, I'm sorry if it has already been posted before, but I did use the search. Take that.

Anyway, whatever happened to the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 port that Activision or whoever was planning to port to the iPhone? I last heard about it quite a while ago where they announced that unless there was an uproar and desire for the game, it most likely will not be published. Did it not make it? If not, why didn't you all make the uproar and show the desire? That would be pretty awesome if it came out or will come out.

Recent purchases: Pac man CE, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, Mecho Wars, and Chaos Rings.
Upcoming Games I plan to get: Splinter Cell, GoF2

No, its real all right. My colleagues actually played it and took footage. But, it was made by an independent dev. meaning that Activision would need to give the OK for it to be launched.

Well, they better get that permission from Activision then. It would be a great addition to my collection. The current skater games on the iPod Touch aren't really that great. Vans SK8 happens to be very good, but I think I'd rather have a full port of a Tony Hawk game.
