Activision Is Working on More Remasters

Spyro and Warcraft III are the top candidates.

Activision is planning on remastering some of their classic properties. 

The company’s most recently released investor’s report references some of the games and content add-ons the studio is planning on releasing for the rest of the year. Included amongst the Call of Duty games and Hearthstone expansions is a reference to “releases of remastered versions of titles from our library of IP.” The report does not elaborate on which titles might be remastered. 

However, all signs point to a remaster of the Spyro the Dragon trilogy. It’s been rumored for some time now that Activision has been working on remasters of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. As is typically the case with such remasters, they will likely feature updated visuals, updated soundtracks, and a host of modern features. 

It seems that the success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy may have inspired to Activision to reconsider the modern-day merits of Spyro the Dragon. While the two are not entirely similar – Spyro is more of a “traditional” 3D platformer – there are certainly quite a few PlayStation gamers out there who fondly remember Spyro as one of the few 3D platformers for the console that could challenge the mighty 3D platformer library of the N64.

While Spyro is the most likely remaster candidate, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other options or that Activision isn’t working on multiple remasters. For instance, the recent updates to Warcraft III have some fans speculating that Blizzard might be preparing to release a remaster of that classic RTS title. Needless to say, that would be quite amazing. 

If you really want to put your speculation pants on, you could go so far as to say that the success of the Crash Bandicoot remasters might have Activision considering the release of several classic PlayStation titles and games from other eras. However, we’re sticking with Spyro and Warcraft III as the most likely candidates.
