Skylanders Imaginators PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Despite reports to the contrary, Activision has decided to keep its Skylanders series on life-support. The franchise's most recent instalment Skylanders: Imaginators flopped hard, prompting speculation that the company was about to cull the series. But during an earnings call, the organisation outlined its plans to keep the property alive -- although there'll be no new entry this year.

Instead, the firm will focus on further content for the aforementioned Imaginators, while also developing a new mobile game and commissioning a second season of Netflix series Skylanders Academy. Presumably the year out will give Activision time to consider how it plans to bring the franchise back in 2018 -- but will you miss the series while it's on temporary hiatus?
