No doubt Activision is delighted that over 100 million Skylanders toys have been sold across the United States. The company announced the milestone at the Toy Fair 2013, reports Destructoid. Activision says that the Skylanders franchise (Skylanders and Skylanders Giants) across all platforms has generated over $500 million since its launch in 2011.
Activision studio Toys For Bob created both games, but the next title – Skylanders: Swap Force – is being developed by Vicarious Visions. The game will offer a new feature to fans – the ability to switch tops and bottoms of the action figures to create new in-game playable characters. Skylanders: Swap Force is due for release this fall.
While Activision has enjoyed being the only player in the game-toy space with Skylanders, it will soon have some stiff competition from Disney who are working on a similar kind of game that uses toys called Disney Infinity.
