'Spyro the Dragon' trilogy remaster reportedly coming to PS4 this year

14 February 2018

Several sources familiar with the development told Kotaku that Activision is working on a Spyro the Dragon Trilogy Remaster.

Sources speaking to Kotaku UK believe the remastered trilogy will launch in September 2018, which just about lines up with Spyro's 20th anniversary. All of these reports seem to line up with the same sort of work done to the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, which was a huge success a year ago. It is also a one-year timed-exclusivity deal which means it will be ported to the other systems in 2019, per the report.

As far as the content of the Spyro the Dragon Trilogy Remaster is concerned, the project features new assets, lighting, animations, and cinematics, in addition to a totally remastered soundtrack.

The trilogy, which was released between 1998 and 2000 for the PlayStation, will be receiving the same treatment that the Crash Bandicoot remaster received, being rebuilt from the ground up. And each of the initial trilogy's titles were well received so Vicarious Visions has a solid foundation to build upon.

A few years ago, it would have been impossible to think that the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon series will be brought to the PlayStation 4.

With the success of the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy possibly spurring them on, rumors are pointing to Activision reviving another beloved franchise. The upcoming collection of remastered games is rumored to be announced next month and to be released sometime during the third quarter of 2018. Spyro and his friends entered the mainstream again in 2011 with the Skylanders toys-to-life action games.

Activision struck gold with its Crash Bandicoot rerelease, and the popular Spyro platforming series seems like the most obvious target for the company's next revival.
