After the huge success of Crash Bandicoot: The N Sane Trilogy last year, rumours started circulating that the next Playstation mascot to get a Next Gen remaster would be Spyro the Dragon. Originally created by Insomniac Games, Spyro was a platforming series that started in 1998. By April, these rumours were confirmed as development team Toys For Bob announced that they were developing the Spyro Trilogy remaster, for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The remaster of the first three original games (titled ‘The Reignited Trilogy’) was to be released on the 21st September 2018. However, this date has now been changed as Toys For Bob announced on the 17th August that the game would now be released on the 13th November 2018.
The full statement, from their recent blog post, is below:
Everyone here at Toys for Bob is so proud to be reigniting the original Spyro trilogy after all these years. We’re deeply committed to getting these games right, so we’ve decided to move the release date of Spyro Reignited Trilogy to November 13, 2018. I really hoped that you would be rescuing dragons and scorching Rhynocs sooner, but the Trilogy needs more love and care. In November when you’re exploring the Dragon Realms, Avalar and the Forgotten Worlds, we know you’ll agree the extra time was worth the wait.
The adventure continues,

While I’m upset that the game is delayed (and confused at the rather vague statement), I’m happy that we’re still getting a remaster and I look forward to revisiting the Dragon Realms and Avalar in November!
