Developer studio Toys for Bob have announced that they’ll be delaying the launch of Spyro Reignited for about two months. The remasters will come out on November 13th, instead of mid-September, as they’ve originally planned. The reason is that they need more time to perfect the games before release.
The remasters of the original Spyro trilogy, aka Spyro Reignited, won’t meet the intended release date. The developers, Toys for Bob, originally planned for the game to come out in mid-September. In a recent blog post, though, they’ve revealed that they’ll be delaying the launch of the game(s). The new date is November 13th, which is a little less than two months delay. The reason is that they need more time to polish the game to optimal shine.
The blog post, written by Paul Yan, co-studio head of developer Toys for Bob, reads as follows: “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.”
Of course, this is more than a bit of a disappointment for all of you that couldn’t wait to sink your teeth into the return of Spyro. But, as I’ve said time and again, it’s better for a game to come out later with all the kinks ironed out, than devs rushing it out the door. Two months isn’t that long of a wait, after all. Although, good luck wrestling with the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2 at that point.
