A very early version of the mod was released on August 31st, 2012, featuring THUG1 versions of Venice and School 2 levels. It was originally called THUG2 LEVELMOD as a tribute to the similiar mod for THPS3.
A year later on August 9th, 2013, the first version of the mod within the name THUG PRO was released.
There were few minor patches released during November, 2013 which fixed some major crash bugs.
In January 2014, a thread about the mod was posted on Reddit. Later on, article about the mod called "Fans Are Making The Ultimate Tony Hawk Game" appeared on the main page of Kotaku. Several other known game sites reposted this article.
On February 24th, 2014 patch was released. Along with new levels from THPS4 it adds new launcher, extends Create-A-Skater menu and fixes known crashing and lags.
