Following the success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Activision is looking at some of its other IP to remaster, and many are calling for Spyro.
In Activision’s quarterly financial results the company revealed that the recent release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy completely blew all of their expectations out of the water, so much so that they’re considering other IP to revive.
In their earnings call, Activision Publishing boss Eric Hirshberg revealed the news, though didn’t comment on exactly which IP they had in mind.
“We knew that there was a passionate audience out there for Crash. Full disclosure myself among them, but we had no idea – it’s hard to tell whether that’s a vocal minority or whether that’s a real mass audience until you put something out there,” Hirshberg said.
“Crash has surpassed all of our expectations by a pretty wide margin. And a couple of stats that underscore that point where it was the number one selling console game in June based on units, even though it was only available for two days during that month.
“We think we have other great IP in our portfolio that we’re considering of course… I think you can be confident that there will be more activity like this in the future with more great IP.”
Of course, it only seems natural that Activision revives Spyro, after all, the adorable dragon did help the company launch a pretty successful toys-to-life series, and with it being Spyro’s 20th Anniversary next year, it only seems fitting.
