I was going through my timeline and I noticed that Portal Master Andrew Azalea tagged me in a link to an article discussing the new release of Skylanders slated to be released in 2015. According to VideoGamer the new game will not be made by Toys for Bob, but instead will be developed by Vicarious Visions makers of last years mega hit Skylanders Swap Force. Most of us die hard fans already had this knowledge, but it is good to know that the rumor seems to be true. Due to the sale of over 240 million toys since the Skylanders Game was released in 2011 generating over 3 billion in retail sales, Activision has stated that they have out sold every toy line released in 2014 making it the Number 1 selling toy in the world. You may remember me mentioning Skylanders being the #1 children’s console game of 2014. As well as receiving another #1 console game rating with the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. With the tremendous amount of sales Activision will not only be releasing a new Skylanders game, but according to the Activision 4th quarter company report there will also be a new Call of Duty game and a 3rd expansion of Destiny.
What will the new game be called? What will it be about? Who will be in it? Man so questions are coming to me now… hope I can get some more info in the months to come. Are you excited to hear that there will be another game coming? What are your guesses about what the new ‘gimmick’ will be? Let me know in the comment section. Be sure to check us out on all of our social networks. Oh I have a small announcement to make. For those of you that have followed the Skylander Addicts journey the original website is coming back with a brand new look. I’m pretty excited to bring the original Skylander Addicts site back. I want to know what are some changes you would like me to make before I republish the site? I want to continue to grow our awesome fold and what better way to do so than to have your help. Without you I wouldn’t be able to do any of this and for that I am grateful and thankful to have the friendship of all of you. Until next time “Catch you on the SKYSIDE!”
