More Skylanders action is heading your way! Not only will SkylandersTM Academy be back for Season 2 on Netflix, with a third season underway, but we are proud to announce that we are partnering with game developer Com2us to create a brand-new role-playing game for mobile devices based on the award-winning Skylanders franchise. Com2us has committed to deliver exceptional global online services for the upcoming mobile iteration of Skylanders.

Com2us is the developer behind Summoners War, the popular and critically acclaimed mobile RPG, and we are excited to see the magic they can summon with Skylanders.

Said Josh Taub, senior vice president of Skylanders Product Management at Activision Publishing, “There are many mobile game companies, but very few have found success globally. We are excited to be working with Com2us, as they have proven expertise in the mobile role-playing game genre."

With more than 300 million toys sold through worldwide, Skylanders fans are deeply engaged across the franchise and a role-playing title lets them experience Skylanders an in entirely new way. We’ll have more information to share as the game continues to be developed, so stay tuned!

It's not fair. Spyro hasn't had it's own game in almost a decade because of Skylanders, meanwhile Crash Bandicoot gets a remastered trilogy collection. Why can't they just do the same for Spyro and retire Skylanders? Skylanders is dead! Face it. The last few games were awful, the show is *****, and Lego Dimensions completely overlapped Skylanders in sales and ratings. Next year is Spyro's 20th anniversary. Please just cancel Skylanders and revive the classic Spyro to replace Skylanders permanently!

My kids will be thrilled to hear about 2 more seasons at netflix. The sheer amount of voice acting talent alone warrants additional seasons im my opinion.

Good to hear there's new Netflix seasons. Mitch Hedberg as Pop Fizz is perfect. I don't have high hopes for the app. If it's anything like past Skylanders licensed apps it will be horribly buggy with near non-existent support, because it's not Call of Duty, so why bother, right? (I'm looking at you Battlecast, and Collectors Vault). If Com2Us does pull something out I doubt it will be anything more than the standard forced-downtime, pay-to-win template being churned out.

 Hey Activision, ignore the Eerockduck comment. That guy is only a stupid Skylanders hater.

Skylanders is fantastic but is true Imaginators wasn´t to good. The franchise needs change to a new game style, one bigger, like Mario Odyssey. And of course, improve the utility of old skylanders figures. The true skylanders fans want still using traps, vehicles, magic items and see new moves and customizes for our old skylanders characters.

By the way. We would like to see again the classic Spyro, you could bring him back on Skylanders, then he could meet his sky-brother. And of course recovering his original franchise like Crash.
