Several weeks ago, some sources who purport to be familiar with the project asserted that a Spyro the Dragon trilogy remaster is currently in the works for the PlayStation 4 and could release as early as this year. While there is little to no concrete evidence of such a thing happening at this point in time, some more potential proof of the project coming to fruition has made its way online, with a recent datamine of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy having found a demo code for the platformer starring the young purple serpent.
As seen below in the tweet from the Twitter user known as “BetaM”, it appears as if the demo code for Spyro the Dragon has intentionally been placed within the main menu of Activision and Vicarious Visions’ Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. While this doesn’t officially confirm that a trilogy remaster for the games is indeed on the way, it does add further fuel to the fire suggesting that something Spyro-related could be in development.

In addition to the report of the Spyro the Dragon trilogy remaster and this recent datamine’s findings of the aforementioned demo code, eagle-eyed fans noticed that a Twitter account with the handle @SpyroTheDragon had been registered in February. The account has been listed as private, so any tweets made are not visible to the public, but it does that suggest that Activision plans to use this as the official Spyro Twitter to possibly share news of a remaster for the titles.
All things considered, a Spyro the Dragon trilogy remaster would surely serve fans and Activision alike, as the former have been clamoring to see a return of the flying fire breather for quite a while, and the latter would stand to make a decent amount of money from such a project. After all, the success of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has already led the publisher to announce it will release more remasters in the future, with Spyro looking to be the most obvious choice.
A Spyro the Dragon trilogy remaster is rumored to be in development for unspecified platforms.
