Earlier today, Spyro Reignited Trilogy’s website was updated to include a message about Spyro 2 and 3 requiring a separate download. This bothered fans who want to own a physical collection of the three games or people who just weren’t happy about having to download games they wanted to leap into immediately.
We reached out to Activision to ask if this meant that the latter two games would just be entirely downloaded or it meant an update.
“The global launch date of Spyro Reignited Trilogy is Sept. 21; and we’re excited for fans to play all three reignited games on that day,” Activision told us. “As with most games today, downloading an update after purchase is quite common. The language on packaging and on the web is to let players know the requirements for Spyro Reignited Trilogy.”
While that is not definitive, some kind of download for Spyro will be required for the latter two games. It’s just not clear how big of one. Spyro Reignited Trilogy releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 21.
