Is it just me, or does the leak just describe Ring of Heroes? On that note, maybe this is in reference to the supposed Ring of Heroes overhaul? They weren't exactly clear in that update post if they were going to be completely rebuilding ROH or if they were going to make a new game from the ground up.

Also the reported 2021 release date doesn't make sense to me because TheGamingRevolution, a very reliable Activision leaker (especially CoD, but he leaked that Crash 4 and THPS 1+2 were happening too) stated that a new Spyro games' in development, and I'd assume that'd come out in 2021. Activision loves their once-a-year family-friendly game, but they don't seem to want to do two in a year. Also, it's been speculated that the reason why Academy and the Skylanders IDW comics ended was that Activision didn't want to confuse consumers with different Spyros, so they cancelled them. Like, a Skylanders game would work without Spyro, but that was supposedly *his* franchise. Would just be weird having a Skylanders game without him.
Even though he didn't matter at all in Skylanders by the second game, some would argue even in the first game smilie


2021 is entirely speculation. I claim full responsibility for the fact that people think this leak is saying 2021. Essentially regardless of what you think about this leak, a 2021 release date shouldn’t be used as evidence for or against the validity of it.

It seems to be an entirely redone game, but we haven't heard anything since. Might've been left on their announcements because Com2us still has the license or something.

Personally, while I do want the series to be full on revived with figures again, I wouldn't complain if the big revival happened in like 5-10 years, after I have a kid of my own to get into it with. But at the same time, the idea of me ever having offspring is about as dubious as the future of Skylanders right now, so yeah.

The issue I see with the series being revived right as if there was never a huge gap between releases is:


A. Old figures are now nonexistent at common retail stores and people would have to rely on resellers to get the original figures, so forwards compatibility is a no-go unless they reproduce everything (which would be beyond risky and a potentially huge loss for them) or just leave it to eBay and Amazon to do the talking (which is a terrible idea).


B. Rereleasing figures, unless they're in "extremely limited" quantities, is a risky move considering there would already be less physical retailer support. Since ToysRUs shut down (and was one of the series' longest supporters) and GameStop is currently struggling, physical release options may not be such a good idea.


C. If they were to release a whole new set of figures again.. there's just too many characters at this point. The cast would have to be shrunk down a lot.


And my source pretty much confirmed (last December) that the studio they're at is no longer working on Skylanders. This could be outdated info for all I know, but their current project has gotten positive feedback so I'd say that their focus is elsewhere.

I believe all this hubbub is likely about Ring of Heroes getting a massive overhaul and not about a brand new physical game with a bunch of toys.

could figures be retooled into physical cards and retain the same functionality? is it even feasible or would it be the same situation you already described? I myself am skeptical about the potential return of Skylanders, but I am inquirious

All that's need is the NFC Chip, so that's a potential possibility. Looking at Nintendo's Amiibo Series, the Animal Crossing Cards did much better than the Animal Crossing Figures. However, the problem with this idea is that knowing Activision, we'd be subjected to blind bag booster packs of Skylander Cards (Much like the AR Cards released with Battlegrounds back in the day). And I doubt any of us want to deal with that again, let alone on a main series console game.

My hope would be that they would have the new game be figureless, but with the ability to use old figures to unlock things in game. Completely optional, but nice for older fans.

This also goes for a ROH 2.0 tbh.

I agree, I think it'd be the best way to bring the franchise back.

It has been almost 9 years since Spyro’s adventure was released I think that the franchise should mature a little bit ,but without losing it’s charm

hhhh yeah. i didn't really understand why the ninja model was just a head with limbs. swashbuckler was interesting to me.
i think i would have liked it better if those body types were optionally available for all classes.

Watch a golden timeline scenario where the next game has NO/minimal new figures and they still screw up releasing all Wave 4/5 characters again

i believe Skylanders can and potentially will come back, but I highly doubt the toys will return. TRU closing its doors gave a big hit when it comes to toy sales and that was Acti's primary place for profit when it came to toy sales.

Hey is there anything you want me to bring for the rest of the week and if so it’s so cool that you can do something and just do it like that

If we do end up getting that trilogy remake/remaster (god I hope we do) this is how they would most likely go about it:


TTL/digital

For those of us who still have our figures can use them with the game but there’s the option for newcomers to use the characters digitally. (Can unlock them via soul gems)

There would be two versions of the game. The portal master edition (comes with a portal compatible for next gen) and the standard edition (just the game)

The only problem with using the old figures is that the NFC chips built into them aren't meant to last, I'm afraid. ;;



How long do RFID chips usually last?



10 to 20 years IIRC. According to another user, people are reporting dead Skylanders ready

I recommend backing up all your figures data and copying them on to nfc cards/chips and yea around 10000 scans is accurate iirc

also if you get the smaller chips size ones in theory you should be able to a base off a figure and replace the chip with that with all the data intact and it should have a life span of about 100,000 scans

Toys to life really is anti preservation. You can't re release older installments and the toys die.


Eh, all the code is still in the games, it's just that the figures unlock them. If Activision were to do a Skyanders (trilogy) remaster, I'm pretty sure TFB/VV have all the data for the figures on a hard drive somewhere if they need it.

The best (IMO) would be a Spyro's Adventure + Giants remaster. But let's accept it, Skylanders is dead.

Business-wise, it'd make sense to remake/remaster SSA, Giants and SF due to them being the most successful entries sales wise. SF also sold the best out of the 6 games, so it'd make sense to remake it along with SSA and Giants.

And VV definitely didn't play it too safe. It's literally the same games with extras and pretty graphics.
