Exact details of how to access the beta have not yet been made clear but it will only be available on Android, will last until the 22nd 25th of June and, according to the Korean webpage for the beta, taking part will get you a 750 Gem reward that can be used when the game officially launches a bit later in the year.

Over the past couple of weeks the Facebook page has been slowly revealing more of the "Awakened" forms of Skylanders so make sure to go check them out if you haven't already. From the looks of it the roster will be quite extensive so those reveals may be continuing for a while yet.

Hopefully this means we'll be getting actual details on the game soon.

Thanks to forum member Bifrost for the heads up on this one.

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.
