PS4/XB1 Spyro Remastered Trilogy Pushed Back to November 2018 as It “Needs more Love and Care”
The Spyro Remastered Trilogy for both PS4 and Xbox One, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, has been delayed to November 2018, Activision and developer Toys for Bob have announced.
The trilogy was first slated for a release on both platforms next month but both the developer and publisher believe that the trilogy requires more polishing before it can be released.
“Everyone here at Toys for Bob is so proud to be reigniting the original Spyro trilogy after all these years”, developer Toys for Bob writes on its blog. “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.”
Publisher Activision also released its own statement on the matter which mentions the need for additional polishing.
“Spyro fans deserve the best game possible, so we’ve decided to take some extra time to polish all three games and deliver the definitive Spyro collection on our new launch day, November 13, 2018,” the publisher’s statement reads.
We recently reported on how only the first Spyro game will be included on the game’s retail disc, while both Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon will require a download to play, and fans didn’t seem to be that happy with this decision.
Spyro: Reignited Trilogy is now scheduled for a global release on both platforms on November 13. Activision and Toys for Bob announced the remastered trilogy back in April of this year:
Spyro Reignited Trilogy is an awesome gaming experience that builds on the excellence of the first three games. Each level in Spyro Reignited Trilogy is mapped faithfully from the originals. The characters are creatively re-imagined with additional flair allowing fans to rekindle the fire with Spyro and his crew like never-before. Players will experience a trilogy that’s loaded with an astonishing amount of detail, refreshed modern day mechanics, full analog stick support and smooth camera handling. Spyro Reignited Trilogy also re-imagines Stewart Copeland’s original soundtrack from the first three games.
“We’re deeply passionate about staying true to the legacy of the original three Spyro games with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy,” said Paul Yan, Chief Creative Officer, at Toys For Bob. “We’ve poured a lot of love into making the personalities and worlds feel just like fans remember them, while also keeping the game collection surprisingly fresh with lush, high definition detail. We’re bringing back the Spyro we all fell in love with 20 years ago.”
