Rumors have been circulating for several weeks now that a remastered collection of the original Spyro the Dragon trilogy will supposedly arrive sometime this year, but Activision still hasn’t formally revealed anything. However, a recent Twitter exchange involving Target could finally be the catalyst for an official announcement of the games.

A fan of the purple dragon recently reached out to the AskTarget Twitter account to inquire about Spyro’s HD remasters, and surprisingly, the retailer replied with a few revealing details. Sadly, the tweets have been deleted, but according to WWG, the Target help account confirmed the updated trilogy’s existence, as seen below.

We’re “all fired up,” for the Spyro Treasure Trilogy game as well! We don’t currently have any information about when this game will be available for pre-order. However, we’d encourage you to continue checking back for availability. Thanks for reaching out!

Then, AskTarget replied to another user’s question about the collection, revealing a possible late 2018 release date.

The only information we have at this time is that we anticipate Spyro Treasure Trilogy will be coming in late 2018. Thanks for reaching out!

While the Target tweets don’t officially confirm anything, the retailer’s openness to provide a name and launch window for the remasters suggests it might have insider knowledge. If the new details on the collection are accurate, perhaps Target was willing to share the information because it believed Activision was planning to announce Spyro’s return soon. According to a previous report from Kotaku UK, Activision had been planning to announce the remasters in March 2018, with a formal launch of the games in September. The timeline matches well with Target’s recent comments, which mean fans could finally get an official word from Activision soon.

While the retailer’s comments are the most convincing details we’ve had so far, there have been several other rumors of the remastered Spyro trilogy in the past. In early March, a fan discovered a private Twitter account linked to Spyro the Dragon and a voice-over project. Also, the aforementioned report from Kotaku UK tied in with Activision’s previous confirmation that more HD remasters similar to last year’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy would be coming down the line.

With so many of the rumors lining up together, Spyro’s return in HD seems inevitable at this point.
