Spyro: Myths Awaken Game Development Stopped by Activision
Spyro: Myths Awaken is a fan-made project inspired by Spyro The Dragon: the game has been in development for over twelve months but its existence has only been made known in recent weeks. The author, however, stated that the title will not be released in this form, due to Activision’s (legitimate) request to stop working on the game.
Players often pay tribute to their favorite franchises in various ways, one of them is developing games that return the best of the series. However, in most cases, these types of projects do not see the light, because they use intellectual properties that are protected by copyright.
This is the case with Spyro: Myths Awaken, a project made by a fan known as Cyreides. The platform supporter recently received a letter from Activision, where he is asked to stop developing his game if he does not want to face legal charges.
Of course, Activision wants to stop the project due to the upcoming release of Spyro Reignited Trilogy, but at the same time it comes down to legal, copyright and intellectual property protected reasons.
At the request of the company, Cyreides confirmed that he will no longer continue with the development of Spyro: Myths Awaken. Despite this, the fan will not throw all his work in the trash, because he plans to resume it as an original game.
To resume his project, Cyreides will eliminate any reference to the Spyro franchise. Spyro: Myths Awaken was planned as a continuation of the original trilogy, so it was going to have a new story.
The project was developed with Unity and already had a planned narrative. In addition, new non-playable characters and diverse thematic worlds were designed. The game did not have a release date, but now it is a fact that it will never be available in its final version.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy will debut with the original trilogy on November 13 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Below you can check the video of the game that was in development:
