Spyro The Dragon Official Twitter Account Spotted, Possibly Teasing Remake

Spyro The Dragon Official Twitter Account Spotted, Possibly Teasing Remake

Spyro The Dragon is one of the most popular platformer on the PS1 along with the Crash Bandicoot series, so it won't be surprising to see it get a remake this year after the blockbuster success of the Crash Bandicoot Trilogy last year. The first game was released for the PlayStation in September 1998.

Spyro The Dragon is getting a full remake just like Crash Bandicoot a year ago. For the time being no official word exists from Activision (or Sony who may or may not be involved), but it has now been revealed by a ResetEra user that a Twitter account dedicated to Spyro has been set up, suggesting that something is under development. The @SpyroTheDragon Twitter account, previously personally held by a random individual, was allegedly been acquired by Activision as recently as last month. "Someone else did the "reset password" trick and it's obviously an Activision account". Also, of note, the name now attached to the account is "Falcon McRob", which could be meaningful as Activision has a voice over project in production codenamed Falcon.

The Old Republic International Co. (ORI) Declares Quarterly Dividend of $0.20
The insurance provider reported $0.33 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.28 by $0.05. Valeo Financial Advisors LLC bought a new position in shares of Old Republic International in the 3rd quarter valued at $118,000.

Interesting to note is Vicarious Visions, the studio behind the Crash Bandicoot remake, also made Skylanders: Swap Force in 2013 and Skylanders: Superchargers in 2015.

Is Spyro the Dragon about to make a fiery comeback? Whatever ends up happening, Activision definitely has some plans for the future of Spyro and the Skylanders franchise. According to Kotaku's report, the collection will include Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon and boast new assets, animation, lighting, cinematics, a redone soundtrack, and an updated save system. Could it be some combination of the two?
