Spyro Reignited Trilogy's file size has been revealed thanks to its product page on Microsoft's Store and Xbox One owners will be needing up to 36.32GB of free space on their hard drives. Of course, this only raises other questions.
Well, not really questions, more like a single question - why aren't all three games featured in Spyro Reignited Trilogy sold on a single disc? Dual-layer Blu-ray can fit up to 50GB of data, so now we're certain it's not a matter of disc capacity being the limiting factor.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy leaked online before it was officially announced but once the cat was out of the bag, Activision followed it up with some unfortunate news. Only the first game in the trilogy, Spyro the Dragon, would end up on the disc, while the other two, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, would follow as digital downloads.
Of course, everyone chalked this off to development time, disk space or whatever, with many suggesting that Toys for Bob needed more time to polish the beloved series. In the meantime, Spyro Reignited Trilogy's launch date has been pushed back to November 2018, leading many to hope, if not expect, that we'll be getting the whole package.
Unfortunately, Toys for Bob and Activision have remained peculiarly silent on the issue, which means that the original plan is still in motion. We've recently heard rumours that Activision may end up including all three Spyro Reignited Trilogy games on disc, but it seems that the may is not turning into is anytime soon.
Toys for Bob are grateful for getting more time to work on the game, having recently tweeted that Spyro's fans will surely think the same once the game launches. They've already revealed that Tom Kenny, Spyro's original voice actor, is among the returning cast and there's a specially made Spyro Reignited Trilogy music theme as well.
Developed by Toys for Bob and published by Activision, Spyro Reignited Trilogy launches on 13 November 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
