Activision’s Spyro the Dragon remaster collection needs a little more time to cook. The Spyro Reignited Trilogy, which was scheduled to hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Sept. 21, has been delayed to mid-November, developer Toys for Bob announced this week.
Paul Yan, co-studio head at Toys for Bob, said on the Activision blog that the Spyro Reignited Trilogy needs “more love and care.” Here’s his statement:
Everyone here at Toys for Bob is so proud to be reigniting the original Spyro trilogy after all these years. 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.
Activision announced the Spyro Reignited Trilogy in April. The collection will include the first three games in the series (Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, Spyro: Year of the Dragon) and adds new features like a remastered soundtrack, updated analog stick controls, new lighting and recreated cinematics. Earlier this month, Activision confirmed that retail copies of the game will ship with only the first Spyro the Dragon game on the disc; the rest will be available as a download.
