Posted by: CrystalBlazier - 02-09-2017, 04:07 PM - Forum: News & Announcements - Replies (15)

Activision released a statement from their Q4 2016 report that no new main Skylanders game is confirmed for 2017. However, a new mobile game is in development and new content from Imaginators will be released instead for the year.

Report Wrote:In 2017, rather than releasing a new console title, we will be supporting the award winning Skylanders Imaginators with multiple adventure packs, new characters and new in-game content. We are also excited to bring Skylanders Imaginators to Nintendo Switch as a launch title next month and we have a new Skylanders mobile game in development.

Report Wrote:The Skylanders franchise will not have a full game console release this year, but we will continue to engage the community and drive player investment through new toys and digital content.
