Spyro Trilogy sees a push back

Words can not describe my happiness and excitement at the announcement of Spyro the Reignited Trilogy earlier this year, I knew it had to happen, especially after the success of the Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy. When the game was announced for a September release I instantly pre ordered, more than ready to launch myself back into my childhood with some great adventures down memory lane with my favourite purple dragon. Honestly nothing beats a healthy nostalgia gaming journey.

A few days ago it was announced that Spyro had been officially pushed back (original date was 21st September), while this does surprise me I have no problem with it, unlike other people that have openly let their anger be known about this push back. This is something I don’t get, it isn’t as though we won’t be seeing Spyro until next year, it is a small push back of just under 2 months. Instead of a September release we will be flying through portals, collecting dragon eggs and riding skateboards in November. It is understandable for people to be disappointed, of course it is, you get yourself all amped up ready to dive into a new adventure but if a push back happens the just accept it and move on. A push back means the developer is making sure their game is ready rather than rushing release to a less than favourable response.

Spyro the Reignited Trilogy is destined to be a hit, no matter when the release date is. I have a huge love for the small dragon, in fact I might even be more excited for Spyro than I was for Crash but only just. We have three awesome adventures to look forward, although when the trilogy does finally land I will be rushing through the first instalment to reach 2 and year of the dragon (my personal favourite).

The 13th November will be here in no time, to all the people losing their minds over a small push back just think happy thoughts, mainly burning MoneyBags ass! Are you bothered by Activisions decision to push Spyro back? Or are you happy to wait an extra couple of months?


  • It’s a damn shame. This is a great trilogy and while I’d like to think the pushback was caused by polishing decisions, it’s almost never the case..

    Fingers crossed!

    I honestly don’t mind a minor push back but if it gets more delays then there might be a problem.

  • Given the rumours that only the first game was playable on-disc, I’m hopeful that the delay is to address that (if it was true). Hopefully they’re just polishing it up a little more so it’s really great when it finally hits shelves.
    Either way, it now comes out on my friend’s birthday, so at least there’s that!

  • Probably pushed back to gain better Christmas sales. Either way, I’m not too concerned because there is more than enough to play in the meantime. I still have my original PS1 copies that I bought brand-new on release back in day and I also have them all downloaded to my Vita so Spyro is never too far away from me!

    They are some of my favourite games but I hope they don’t ruin the music which was one of the best parts of the originals. They could even keep the original soundtrack as far as I’m concerned.
