Hope For More Activision Remakes Appear To Disappear As Toys For Bob Is The Next Support Studio Added For Call Of Duty: Warzone

As of 2017, many fans of Activision’s legacy franchises grew more and more excited with bombastic announcements from the publisher. In that, the firm would offer annual installments of remade titles for two decade-old properties of nostalgic titles. First was Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy followed by Spyro Reignited Trilogy and then Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.

In 2020, developer Vicarious Visions unleashed Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 which dealt a similar pull of the heart strings of beloved fans for the original arcade skateboard titles. However, in an abrupt decision made by Activision Blizzard, the team was absorbed by Blizzard Entertainment to become a support team.

Although it was later shared that the team is working on a Diablo II Remake, the studio is no longer independent to work on its own projects. And in a similar tale told by game studio Toys for Bob, the developer is now the next added team behind Call of Duty: Warzone.

For those unfamiliar, a similar fate was handed previously to developer Beenox. The game studio while simultaneously working on annual entries for the first-person shooter also dished out Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled back in 2019 as well. But as for Toys for Bob, it appears Activision view might be skewed for more remakes from the announcement.

What makes the announcement more saddening is that Toys for Bob was potentially hinting at a fourth major installment for Spyro the Dragon. In the Art Book for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, the game studio implicated a similar treatment is due for the iconic purple dragon. You can read the full report by heading here.
