Ubisoft is currently going through a tough time, as it revealed it was canceling three unannounced projects after “surprisingly slower” sales during an emergency call with investors.

Games slated to appear include Redfall, Minecraft Legends, and Forza Motorsport, but it’s already been clarified that Starfield will have its own storefront later down the line.

Toys For Bob seems to be teasing something for Spyro in 2023

It’s been a while since Activision Blizzard approached Spyro the Dragon, much to the dismay of many. However, with 2023 being his 25th anniversary, it looks like he could be dragged out of the publisher’s vault again if this little Toys For Bob tease is anything to go by. The developer recently revealed a 2023 moodboard on Twitter, which included Spyro and the number 25 on the top left. While we all wish this meant a new game was on the way, it’s more likely to tease its appearance in Crash Team Rumble.
