In preparation for the two new Adventure Packs, Skylanders Imaginators received an update earlier today. Along with the content for the two new Adventure Packs, Cursed Tiki Temple and Lost Imaginite Mines, it has added 250 new parts, gear and weapons for your Imaginators to use, and it's also apparently fixed several bugs (including the Heroic Challenges wipe issue).

While the vast majority of the new parts will only be able to be found in the new level packs there are several parts that you'll be able to start finding in Imaginite Chests straight away, meaning this update is more than just a tease for next month. The game will even give you a whole new set to use right away with a free chest just sitting there on the new adventure pack island in the M.A.P..

In their earnings call today Activision announced that they will not be making a new Skylanders console game this year but will instead be focusing on further supporting Skylanders Imaginators with "multiple adventure packs, new characters, and new in-game content". They did however announce that a new Skylanders mobile game is in development but did not provide any further details.

Quote: Earnings Call

In 2017, rather than releasing a new console title, we will be supporting the award winning Skylanders Imaginators with multiple adventure packs, new characters and new in-game content.

We are also excited to bring Skylanders Imaginators to Nintendo Switch as a launch title next month and we have a new Skylanders mobile game in development.



The first of this new content is arriving in March in the form of the Cursed Tiki Temple Adventure Pack which comes with Wild Storm. A second new Adventure Pack featuring RO-BOW has also been discovered with a late April release but its name still remains a mystery.

This is all fairly reminiscent of Disney's original announcement of the future of Disney Infinity before they ultimately cancelled the series just two months later. Hopefully with the Netflix show being renewed for a third season and this new mobile game in development it won't turn out the same way and we'll get a properly followed through plan for the future of the Skylanders franchise.
