With Activision recently announcing that they have reached $2 billion in sales revenue and 175 million toys sold with their Skylanders franchise, it's no surprise that there are plans for more Skylanders games in the series. Good news for Skylanders fans out there, there will be a new game out this year! No further official details have to be revealed, however.
Who will be the developers, may you ask? It seems the original developers, Toys for Bob, will be working on this title. Toys for Bob did not work on Skylanders: Swap Force, but did work on Skylanders Giants and the original Skylanders too. It would be a surprise if they took the series in any different sort of direction though. With Skylanders games coming out at lightning speed these past two years, they're certainly focused more on output than reinventing the wheel.
Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg has mentioned that information about the game will follow a little bit later in the year. But for the time being, let us give Toys for Bob a warm welcome back. Hooray for Skylanders in 2014.
