GUYYYS got some news about skylanders 5! So I got this German magazine called "Game Master" today (if you're German/ Austrian or from Switzerland, you should get it for best skylanders stuff ;3) and it says that the new one will come out on June 3rd WITH INFORMATION ABOUT THE NEXT SKYLANDERS GAME. This means they're definitely gonna reveal it BEFORE June 3rd. Last year, the magazine came about a week after the reveal out so I think it's certain that skylanders 5 will be revealed at the end of May. OMG IM SO EXCITED! Feel free to spread that if you think it's useful information :3


So, to sum up, there will be information about skylanders 5 in the next 'Game Master' magazine meaning that Activision will reveal skylanders 5 on or before June 3rd.

Edit:
Reveal date will be on June 3rd:

Really? AFTER E3, a month from now? I'm almost expecting a delay here, unless it's just one of those big compilations after the press release.

Still,if it's anywhere after E3,that's a lot of shareholder money lost. Activision is more afraid of risk than Nintendo, they wouldn't even think of not revealing anything on the franchise there.

I never really looked at the actual dates,I just remembered I watched it live during uni strike which happened during May and July and that I heard someone say it was at at the latter half of some month,so I assumed it was May.

Dunno,plenty of games where they refused to show it in late beta(and the game reveals around this and march were usually in this state) are actually because they're afraid of reaction,with reason. Or as I said before,delays, but with VV probably working on all mobile games plus this at once I'm surprised SF didn't get announced any later.

I'm so excited for Skylanders 5. Swap Force was my favorite game from the series and I spent the most amount of time on it. Trap Team looked to be amazing, but didn't amaze me as much as Swap Force did.

I think VV manage them selves a bit better and have something to prove now. Unless the skylanders franchise reaches 7 games this could be their last 1 . I think they'll try and make a big impact.

even though I wasn't the biggest fan of SF ( coz I loved SA and Giants , SF just didn't feel the same), I can still admit it a very good game. If VV make an amazing Skylanders 5, their 2 games as a whole might show they are just as good, if not better skylanders game designers then toys 4 bob. a few people already think that but you can't really conclude anything from them only having produced the 1 game so far, and they could screw this new one up lol .

I grew up and never had a thought about a video game until I see it on shelves. We've obviously have become entitled in the Internet age I guess. For me, they could announce it a week before the game came out. I still think we'll get something by May 15th.

I've no doubt VV will emerge victorious with this new entry (cross fingers, toes and anything else I can)

Entitled? Back then we didn't have a say if the game was crap because the company didn't care. Sure, there are big issues now of people pressuring developers to make things tailor-made for certain things that they want even if they're not longstanding fans, but having people be aware of the game's development means they can't just act like we wouldn't know better. Games like Aliens: Colonial Marines and Sonic Boom would never have the proper impact on the company if people just noticed they existed once they were in the shelves - we knew something was amiss and the sales reflect that properly.

I'm totally fine with the conversations on the finished product, but yes...we're all complaining because we feel that we should know about a game 6 months before its release. The fact that the now open culture of how and when video game companies communicate a game forthcoming is great...wouldn't have it any other way. Companies spend lots more to make video games than in the past, so it's in their best interest. Doesn't detract from the demands the boards are generating over wanting the content. And yes, I'd like to see it too, but in my opinion they can choose when, where, and IF they choose to do it. I'll vote accordingly...with my wallet. This time especially.

Same birthday! I'm old though so probably a very different year.

Hoping for somewhat automatically generated content or even better, user-made content.

Also, I'd like the option of other camera angles at least for 1 player.
Notice all of the publicity shots, you see the characters close-up, at a better angle.

I'm like "Hold on hold on hold on!" Lol. Because whenever they reveal a new game before I get all of the characters, I just have no interest in the characters when I get them because I'm too into the next game. Luckily I only need Fling Kong, Pet-Vac, and Breeze. smilie

I heard a couple things from a TRU employee:
1) official announcement of Skylanders 5 will be at E3
2) Release of Skylanders could possible be pushed back to November.
Whether #2 is true, we'll wait and see.

Agreed. Employies of stores like that are fountains of BS. They just want to sound like they know what they are talking about. My GameStop is similar. I only think that the manager knows what he is doing when it comes to Toys To Life.

Yeah they usually don't know anything and just have to act like they know the industry. And stores generally don't get much extra info besides product descriptions. really if any stores new any accurate info it'd be all ove the Internet. You can't keep that many part time and casual workers quiet lol.


dI 3 hasn't got an actual release date yet iether. And I assume we'll get the same for skylanders when its revealed. They are probably trying to get it ready as soon as possible though. withLego dimension releasing at the end of September, it'll be the first toys to life title for the year. It wouldn't be smart for any other company to release their games much later, giving people a month or so to try out a new game because they are bored waiting for their regular one is something they'd avoid at all costs.

skylanders really doesn't need to be pushed back though anyway, Unless it's got a huge game design change. The game , even with 100+ characters inst very complicated. Everything's just set out in a linear level by level design. And they have 4 old games that can be used as skeleton code.

And really they released Giants exactly 1 year after SA and they were made by the same company. With 2 company's taking turns each year to do skylanders now they have no real excuse for late releases unless it somehow benefits them.

#41 Posted: 11:59:13 07/05/2015
One month delay doesn't sound like much,but I don't mind as long as they don't get greedy and try to compete with christmas releases - but yeah don't take the word of someone in a random game store, I had several of them telling me Trap Team would come out in February in here and it didn't take long for me to get word from Neoplay that the date is never.
Another month of development DOES mean time to finish polishing and adding new small things to the game,however. Trap Team could've used that so hard to finish the hub proper.

Any small amount of problems from marketing, competition and any number of bugs can push it back. Who are you to say it doesn't need it?

They can have whatever excuse they want to let it release later. And typically later is better.

Giants used the same shared engine as SSA. Possibly with the new game there won't be a wii game, which might allow for extra tweaking, add ins and other things.

OR it could just be they want to have a separate release date to:

Not conflict with two more releases possibly? To be right along the best shopping time of the year?

Maybe they want to put it out after black friday to make extra money or right near it to make way too much money?

Even if it was the best game of the series I'd definately hold out on preordering/day one importing if that was the case, just to stay sane. Ebay probably would be seeing starter packs get listed and bought within minutes.

Prime example is Activision's other half, Blizzard Entertainment. They're famous for pushing things back with major success. Warcraft (not counting WoW) and Starcraft especially.
So if they do push it back, hopefully it's for improvements. I would rather wait a month for an excellent game rather than get a rushed version done poorly.
