** Similarily, ''Imaginators’’ performed well with the critics but sold below expectations (in early NPD report stated the game had only sold 66,000 retail units in the US, a 41% decline from ‘’Superchargers’’), which has led to Activision declaring that 2017 would be the first year since 2010 which would not see the release of a new Skylanders game. A comment in an interview saying that Activision was "waiting to see what the right way to continue investing in it is" suggests that the title averted becoming a FranchiseKiller outright, but only time will tell for sure.

Whether this is the series being quietly taken out behind the woodshed or taking some of the pressure off the creative team by not demanding annual releases from them remains to be seen.

*OldShame: ''Battlecast'' appears to have become this, as the game isn't mentioned on the developers' website at all.



** ''Battlecast'' became this not long after release.



** In the original concept for the Spell Punk Library from ''Superchargers'', the Skylanders were originally supposed to be able to shift between Present and Past versions of the library, as well as interact with friendly Spell Punks who ran the facility. In fact, the original idea was that the Library as it exists now is the last remaining piece of a sprawling city, which the player could explore by shifting into the past, perhaps hinting that the Spell Punks as we know them now are the desperate survivors of the Darkness ravaging their society or were twisted by it to serve it.

** Activision planned to update ''Battlecast'' by releasing more content and cards later on but nothing ever came of this. The fact that [[https://www.reddit.com/r/skylanders/comments/5d5bmv/pretty_chuffed_with_todays_delivery_considering/ dev team behind the game was fired later on]] suggests that the remaining content would never be released.

** Golden Queen's origins lie as far back as ''Spyro's Adventure'', as a concept for the Weapons Master being a LivingStatue. The team was quite fond of the concept and tried to revive it for ''Giants'', with some of their proposed designs servings as the basis for what would become the [[MiniBoss Arkeyan]] [[{{BFS}} Duelists]], albeit as a much more svelte, female golem.
