Citing “multiple sources familiar with the project,” Kotaku UK has revealed that an HD remake of the classic PS1 Spyro the Dragon trilogy is currently in development by Vicarious Visions, the same team that made the similar Crash trilogy remake last year.
The Spyro remaster will be announced for PS4, with PS4 Pro support, sometime in March 2018, and will be releasing in Q3 2018. One source suggested that September would be the launch month, which would be in line with Spyro the Dragon‘s 20th anniversary.
While this detail will not be part of the announcement in March, the game will be a one-year timed exclusive for PS4, before being ported to other systems in 2019. Apparently, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is tied to similar one year exclusivity window, so expect to see multiple ports of that in 2018.
Although the article doesn’t specifically mention Switch, it offers further confirmation that Crash was indeed a timed exclusive, adding fuel to the reports that Crash will be getting a Switch port. If that’s the case, then it’s highly likely that Spyro will be coming to Switch too in 2019.
