if the rumors do turn out to be true how many of you would even buy another game

I would. I've been replaying the games (Finished SSA, Superchargers, and Imaginators so far) and it just made me realize what I've been missing.

The game maybe, the figures never again. I don't even know why I still have the wishlist on my profile anymore, the shipping and regular prices aren't getting any cheaper. I'm also kinda done with combing through videos and hashtags looking for any crumb of information; only what's needed for wiki work because life is too short to watch Youtuber With Kids Who Doesn't Care About the Game for the umpteenth time.

If this is true (and I don't think it is), I think Activision is jumping the gun a bit. It's a common thought that nostalgia comes around every 10-20 years. That would be 2026/2027 or 2036/2037. Also I agree with Bifrost, if Skylanders was to return, the figures aren't coming back.

Assuming the leak is actually true, I have no clue if I'd actually want to buy the new game just yet since there's like, no other information other than "It might exist possibly." I'm going to reserve my judgement when/if there's an official announcement or trailer while hoping that the game actually turns out decent and doesn't kill this series (again).

Yeah, I seriously do hope we don't get figures again. On one hand, I love having the ones I have, but I also feel like it would just be better for the series' longevity (considering that this leaked game comes out and is good enough to revive the series) if they didn't exist. Fun little gimmick while it lasted and would maybe be fun as a very optional thing, but if they ever wanted Skylanders to have another chance, it'd have to be scrapped.

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

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.

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.

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 disagree with the too many characters claim Pokemon has over 800 Pokemon and some were cut because Game Freak didn't care they could have put all 800+ if they wanted to.
Toys R Us is back. They could re-release figures again which i'd like.

Pokémon are completely digital, though.

I am aware but still. I'm not against toyless but there would go 6 years of collecting.

I doubt Activision cares about collectors in specific, and unlike the situation with Game Freak (Or, rather, The Pokémon Company as a whole) I don't blame them for not caring.

It'd cost way too much to produce figures again, especially to the extent that some people expect them to. Plus, Toys to Life died for a reason, as it just isn't marketable or financially viable anymore.

In addition to that, if they were to reintroduce the core Skylanders games (Which I don't see happening for at least a decade, if at all), they'd likely want to reinvent/reboot it so as to start from a clean slate and make it more accessible to a wider audience.


It burnt out but can return. Too much money? Activision make billions annually. Money is not an issue. The only game the could reintroduce is Trap Team.

Your personal opinion doesn't change this, especially when you clearly don't have any understanding of economics.

With enough time Toys To Life can come back. Everyone thought Crash and Spyro were dead and they came back. A lot of Skylanders fans believe it can come back. Activision refuses to admit it's dead. If it comes back even without toys I'll count it as a win. Or is it a fantasy?

Toys to Life coming back isn't impossible (Nor did I ever say that it was), but I don't believe it's comparable to Crash and Spyro coming back as they weren't a fad/trend like Toys to Life was and were already large franchises.
Activision refuses to admit that Skylanders is dead because it isn't, as I previously stated they have reduced it into a mobile-only franchise for the time being while Crash and Spyro have replaced the space left behind by the core Skylanders games.

I'm not debating whether or not Skylanders will come back because A: it didn't got anywhere to begin with technically speaking, and B: I'm talking about whether or not it'll come back with figures specifically.

Regardless of how it comes back, I'd wager we'd be looking at a wait time of around ten years for the franchise to become relevant in a meaningful way again as Crash and Spyro have clearly replaced it and Activision seems content with mobile-only games.

I'm also not trying to say that you're wrong, rather I'm just pointing out how unlikely certain things are.



I'm not sure what you mean about "it didn't go anywhere to begin with technically speaking" but it's unlikely Skylanders will return but finger crossed.

Maybe the 3DS version of Spyro's Adventure? I'm not entirely sure, to be completely honest with you.

I admittedly (And regrettably) haven't played too much Skylanders, though I played Swap Force recently and enjoyed that rather thoroughly. I'm also looking forward to getting into the other games (Hopefully) soon as well. smilie



IMO I think Swap Force is best I think that's where the series peaked

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)
