Activision Confirms New Skylanders Game and Skylanders Academy TV Show for This Year

Activison-Blizzard revealed plenty of financial information in its first-quarter financial results report, including a new Skylanders title for this year, as well as a more surprising announcement:

Activision expects a new Skylanders game to launch in 2016 along with Skylanders Academy, a new TV series celebrating the beloved kids franchise.

While the new entry in their Skylanders franchise makes sense (despite disappointing sales for the most recent game) the TV series is a bit more unexpected. Most likely it’s an effort to revitalize and maintain interest in the franchise among children.
