It appears that the much-anticipated remastering of the original three Spyro games will be delaying its release. While Activision had initially confirmed a release date of September 21st (a couple weeks after the first game’s 20th anniversary), the Spyro Reignited Trilogy will now be coming to fans on November 13th.
This news was relayed by Paul Yan, the studio head of the development company in charge of bringing the Spyro Reignited Trilogy to life: Toys for Bob. Yan recently stated in an Activision blog post that the trilogy “needs more love and care,” and that he knows, come November, “you’ll agree the extra time was worth the wait.”
The full post reads:
“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.”
This statement appears to come from someone who genuinely wants to bring Spyro fans the fantastic remaster they deserve. In an interview with IGN, Yan expressed a desire to recapture the quality and magic from the first three games. Hopefully, with these extra months, he and his team will be successful.
