In a message to investors Activision wrote of its 2018 plans "We expect to release World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth and out latest Call of Duty game in the second half of 2018. In addition, we expect to deliver ongoing content for our various franchises...as well as releases of remastered version of titles from our library of IP."
The message comes following reports that the classic 3D platformer Spyro would also receive a remaster treatment in the similar vein as Crash Bandicoot. The rumor also suggested that like the N'Sane Trilogy, the Spyro remaster would get new assets and updated cinematics.
Considering that the Crash Bandicoot remaster was one of Activision's best-selling titles on the PS4, the news of more remasters coming from the company aren't completely surprising. The N'Sane Trilogy sold over 2.5 million copies and spent six weeks atop video game best sellers in the UK. With that kind of momentum for remastered titles, and it makes sense that Activision would be pursuing this kind of business.
Other games from Activision rumored for re-releases include the company's backlog of Call of Duty titles. Even though new Call of Duty games come out at an annual pace, previous games in the series like Modern Warfare have proven to be popular when remastered and re-released.
Now that Activision has confirmed its commitment to remastering games in its IP library, the sky's the limit for which Activision series we might see once more on new consoles.
