Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a platform video game developed by Toys for Bob and published by Activision. It is a collection of remasters of the first three games in the Spyro series: Spyro the Dragon (1998), Ripto’s Rage (1999) and Year of the Dragon (2000). The game was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November 2018, and for Microsoft Windows and Nintendo Switch in September 2019.
Discussions around the revival of Spyro the Dragon began as early as 2014. In July 2014, former Sony Computer Entertainment chairman Andrew House stated that his team was considering bringing Spyro back, adding that he believed longtime fans would be interested in revisiting a character from their youth. Later that same year, Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price also stated that making a new Spyro game was a possibility. In 2017, developer Vicarious Visions stated that they were aware of how high the popular demand was for a revival of the classic Spyro series following the release of their Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remaster.
The realization of Spyro remakes was originally teased in April 2018 when several media outlets received a package with a purple egg from someone under the alias “Falcon McBob.” The Reignited Trilogy was officially revealed a few days later on April 5, 2018. After initially being scheduled for release on September 21, 2018, it was delayed and released on November 13 of the same year. The physical release of Reignited Trilogy contains the full game of Spyro the Dragon, as well as a subset of levels from Ripto’s Rage and Year of the Dragon. The remaining data must be downloaded as part of an in-game update. At E3 2019, versions for Microsoft Windows and Nintendo Switch were announced and were released on September 3, 2019.
