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.
“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.
