The Spyro Reignited Trilogy has officially been delayed from its original launch date of September 21, 2018. The game, according to an announcement from Activision, is now set to release about two months later on November 13. Spyro developer Toys for Bob also released a statement about the delay, stating that while they had hoped to finish the game sooner, it needed “more love and care.”

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.
Earlier this year it was revealed that the Trilogy consists of the first three remastered Spyro games from the PlayStation 1: Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. In addition, only the first of those games will be a physical copy, while the other two will be digital downloads. During San Diego Comic Con this year, fans also got a taste of the Spyro Reignited soundtrack after it was revealed that the original composer, Stewart Copeland, has returned for the Trilogy. The entire soundtrack will also be remastered, although players will have the option to switch between original and remastered soundtracks if they so choose.
Toys for Bob and Activision announced Spyro Reignited back in April 2018. The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will now be launching in November for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
