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

Spyro the Dragon

Activision has not commented on the Spyro remaster yet, but Kotaku's sources claimed the game will be announced next month, March 2018, and release in Quarter 3 of this year.

Following the success of last year's Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy collection, there have been murmurs Activision is planning to revive another late-90s platformer icon, Spyro the Dragon.

The Spyro remaster will be announced for PS4, with PS4 Pro support, sometime in March 2018, and will be releasing in Q3 2018. There'll also be an updated save feature in the remake. This means new assets, lighting, animations, cinematics and soundtrack, alongside new features such as a reworked saving system to improve accessibility.

Activision struck gold a year ago with the release of the excellent Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remake.

The remake is being developed by Vicarious Visions who is the same studio that made Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.

It is understood the game will include three old titles - Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Video game developers Vicarious Visions are confirmed to be in charge of remastering the beloved Spyro trilogy. PS4 initially anyway - it's rumoured to be exclusive to Sony for a year after release, after which time its open season.

Given the persistent calls from Spyro fans looking to return to Glimmer, this would certainly be the most sensible follow up to Crash. It's expected the release date will be around in September to coincide with the franchise's 20th anniversary.

Those without a PS4 don't necessarily need to rush out to get one just for the remaster.

As always, take what you hear here with a grain of salt, as nothing is official until Activision makes it so.
