Following the runaway success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Activision is lining up a Spyro the Dragon Trilogy remaster for the PlayStation 4. According to Kotaku – citing sources familiar with the project – all three of Insomniac Games’ enormously popular PSone platformers will be resurrected for the new-gen system, with the promise of “cut content” making a return.
As with Crash, the trio of titles will be upgraded with new assets, lighting, cinematics, and audio. There’ll also be full PS4 Pro support. An announcement is expected as soon as next month, with a release currently slated for Q3 2018. According to one source, a September launch is being targeted internally, as it would coincide with the series’ 20th anniversary.
Moreover, the collection will launch as a PS4 exclusive for one year. Apparently, Sony’s managed to sign the same deal as it did with the N. Sane Trilogy, which is scheduled to release on other platforms imminently. It’d be another big coup for the console – and for fans of the franchise, who’ve been clamouring for Spyro’s revival in the aftermath of Crash.
