After months of rumors and leaks, Activision finally confirmed the existence of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy back in April. The game was announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a September release date, and there were also rumblings of a Nintendo Switch version. Just over a month ahead of the announced release date, developer Toys for Bob has announced a change of plans.
In a new blog post on the official website, Toys for Bob Co-Studio Head Paul Yan revealed that the Trilogy has been delayed. Instead of September 1st, it will now launch on November 13th. The exact cause of the delay was left unexplained, but the team at Toys for Bob is “committed to getting these games right” and they’ve determined that the collection “needs more love and care” before its ready for release.
With a beloved franchise like Skylanders in their care, Toys for Bob would be making a big mistake by rushing a shoddy product to release. That said, the November release date means it will have to compete with the likes of Hitman 2, Fallout 76, and Pokémon: Let’s Go, all launching in the span of four days.
