Activision plans to release more remastered classics later this year

The Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy was a massive success on PS4, so much so that it looks like Activision are planning to expand their game library with more remastered classics, fueling rumours that Spyro remasters are coming in the near future. 

In the company's annual investors report, Activision has confirmed that they plan to remastered versions of classic games using their extensive library of IP. This announcement is the first solid confirmation that Activision will enter the remaster business in a big way. 

Previous rumours have suggested that Activision plans to release a remastered Spyro Trilogy in Q3 of this year, with an official announcement being expected later this month, though these rumours have not been confirmed. This timescale fits in with Activision's investor report.

Just Crash as far as I know.

Spyro is a no brainer, that is instant $$$ which is all Activision want.

For me however, I don't want to see games getting remastered, I would rather see more effort being put into making new IPs rather than showing us the same stuff and going "member?" *cough*Star Wars*cough*Quote
