As of July 31, 2013, the Skylanders franchise has generated life-to-date more than $1.5 billion in worldwide retail sales²; and year-to-date in 2013, in both North America and Europe, Skylanders Giants was the #1 best-selling console and hand-held game overall in dollars.²
"We began something very special with Skylanders, and the magic of bringing toys to life through a video game," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO, Activision Publishing. "But it's not just about the game. We know the toys have to be just as creative and imaginative as the kids that play with them, and that's why we're so excited to bring even more innovations to this genre when Skylanders SWAP Force comes out in October."
Skylanders Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders Giants were developed by Toys For Bob, and Skylanders SWAP Force is being developed by Vicarious Visions. The games are rated Everyone 10+ by the ESRB.
