Spyro Remaster Trilogy Delayed For PS4 And Xbox One

"We know you'll agree the extra time was worth the wait."

35 Comments

Spyro Reignited Trilogy will not make its release date. Activision announced today that the trilogy package will now arrive on November 13, which is about two months later than its previously announced September 21 launch. In a statement, developer Toys for Bob said the game needed "more love and care," so a delay was necessary.

"Everyone here at Toys for Bob is so proud to be reigniting the original Spyro trilogy after all these years," Toys for Bob co-studio head Paul Yan said in a blog post. "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.

No Caption Provided

"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."

The Reignited Trilogy comes with updated versions of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. At Comic-Con in July, it was announced that Stewart Copeland, the original composer, is returning for the Trilogy. Copeland was also the drummer for The Police.

As long as it's all on disc, I'll be fine. Hell, it can even be on multiple discs just like the good ol' PSOne days of Final Fantasy. Just don't do what the latest Final Fantasy did though ;)

That's fine as long as they get all 3 onto the disk. I also know some people had issues w/ the colors and such so a fix for that would be a plus too.

As much as I don't mind the delay this just one-ups mob mentality even further and continues to appropriate the notion that it's okay to whine/complain like a spoiled brat until you get what you want. Nobody should ever make assumptions about a game's development, unless you personally work behind the scenes.

I agree that a delayed game is better than a rushed game, however my excitement has decreased a lot due to all the new games coming out. Starting with Spiderman next month RDR on October and all the way to Days gone or Anthem which is on February I believe and games in the middle (between RDR and feb games).

I won´t be able now to play Spyro when playing all these great games at the same time. Although I loved Spyro I would prioritize new games and probably pick this one mid year on 2019 when it is cheaper.

@Ant_17: good thing I buy digital. I can play it right when it launches.

It's not bad on sp games but it sucks having to wait for the disc while all your friends are playing.

I sometimes buy both digital and physical. Games like rdr2 will be like that. I'm I'm a gamer I want to play games asap.

They're cutting the games in half so we get more balanced incompleteness. Rejoice! ?‍♂️?

No buy if they try to screw us by not having all three games on disc. Simple as that.

I'm okay with this. A delayed game can one day be great, but a rushed game with be bad forever.

@TrueLink: heh, that miyamoto quote applied to the old days, where downloadable patches were not possible. it is less relevant now than before, but there is still some truth to it i suppose.

@Xristophoros: I guess if a game is rushed out now, it can leave lingering bad tastes in peoples' mouths more than anything. No Man's Sky is one of them; while it's significantly better now than when it first came out, albeit nearly two years later, it can't shake off the fact that it was clearly released too soon.

Final Fantasy XV is another one; it's definitely not a terrible game, but it gives off the blatant feeling of it being unfinished if it's got so much DLC stretching into 2019, nearly three years after the initial release. And it felt cheap for Square Enix to decide to chop the story up and make it a requirement to watch the animated episode and buy and watch the film to understand the story.

Hopefully this means giving us the rest of the games but it's Activision, so probably not.

@xOmniCloudx: Considering the publisher and developer failed to mention anything About that in this announcement makes me think not.

@hmoobpaladin: I'd even be happy if they had to add two extra discs. However I get the impression they were lazy about compressing the files/clean up so the games were so massive they couldn't all fit on one.

@gamingdevil800: I wouldn't be so sure about that, Monkey. The reliance on low frequency detail suggests high compressibility. ?️

Maybe they'll try to put them all on one disc? Or include another disc? It's not like discs are expensive...

@Brettsky128: I saw something from ign saying that 1st game will still be the only one the disc. I was really hoping the other games could be all on the same disk too.

@boychik0830: Wait, did GameSpot ever mention that only the first game was going to be on-disc? That seems like a pretty important detail, and this is my first time hearing about it.

@Brettsky128: it sounds like a possibility. their plan to fix the games with a day 1 patch likely backfired and they re-evaluated their options. their decision to delay the release may work out for the best.
