Skylanders infographic

With Activision having recently confirmed that the Skylanders franchise has collected $2 billion in franchise revenue, the company has now released an infographic covering the series’ history and sales. You can find it above.

Unsurprisingly, Activision intends to publish a new Skylanders game this year. What’s interesting though is that Toys for Bob has returned as the project’s primary developer.

Toys for Bob worked on Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure and Skylanders Giants, but wasn’t too involved with 2013’s Skylanders Swap Force. Vicarious Visions was put in charge of last year’s title, with Beenox handling the Wii version.


Since Skylanders made its debut, the series has grossed over $2 billion worldwide for Activision. That figure is as of December 31 of last year. According to Activision, roughly 175 million Skylanders toys have also been sold.


Infinity Ward and Treyarch have acted as the two big developers behind Call of Duty. But today, Activision confirmed the addition of one more major team: Sledgehammer Games.

Starting with this year’s Call of Duty, new entries in the series will take on a three-year development cycle. Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer will rotate on yearly releases. Sledgehammer will be responsible for the unannounced 2014 title.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said during a financial call today:

“This will give our designers more time to envision and innovate for each title. Simultaneously, it will give our content creators more focus on DLC and micro-DLC which, as you know, have become large and high-margin opportunities and significant engagement drivers. Finally, we’ll give our teams more time to polish, helping ensure we deliver the best possible experience to our fans – each and every time.”

(Activision) needed a third studio capable of delivering the level of excellence required for the West’s biggest interactive entertainment franchise (and that Sledgehammer Games fits the bill.) They demonstrated their skill on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and on their past highly-rated games.”


Treyarch is working on a new title update for Call of Duty: Ghosts on Wii U. Although we don’t have any details about the patch (including an ETA), we do at least know it’s coming.

Treyarch’s “A_Trey_U” confirmed on Twitter yesterday:
