The Skylanders franchise has just passed the $2 Billion mark: that’s double where they were a year ago. This year marks a lot of milestones for the game as they break into the top 20 video game franchises of all time. This month they passed the 175 million toy mark and there is no end in site. While Vicarious Visions did a great job with the development and launch of Skylanders: Swapforce it is time for Toys for Bob to step forward with the next installment. I don’t have many details yet, but there are sure to be some announcements, as well as a peek at the game play next week at the New York Toy Fair.
Did I mention I’ll be at the New York Toy Fair next week? If you’re attending, tweet me @AntonOlsen to meet up.
