According to Insomniac's founder and CEO Ted Price, the studio hasn't ruled out returning to the first big franchise it created, Spyro the Dragon.

"We’ll always love Spyro," Price told IGN in an interview. "I’ve learned to say never say never so… who knows?"

Price also said that Activision has done a great job with Spyro, and commended the company for bringing the the series' character and aesthetic to a whole new set of fans.

Today, Skylanders is a huge toy-to-life franchise, but it all started with Spyro the Dragon, a 1998 3D platformer developed by Insomniac games for the first PlayStation.

There have been many Spyro games since, but Insomniac hasn't developed an entry in the series since 2000's Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Insomniac has gone on to create a couple of other iconic franchises like Ratchet and Clank and Resistance, and is currently gearing up for the release of the Xbox One-exclusive Sunset Overdrive.

The next Skylanders game, Skylanders Trap Team, is coming out October 5 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii, 3DS and mobile.
