Insomniac Games announced after the release of Year of the Dragon that they would not create anymore Spyro games, marking the end of what some fans considered the "golden age" of Spyro games. Insomniac Games is known for other game franchises such as Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, and their friendly relationship with Naughty Dog game developers, who developed Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter, and Uncharted.
In the GamesEdit
Spyro the DragonEdit
In the logo screen for Spyro the Dragon, a gnorc holds up a sign that has the original logo of Insomniac on it. After he plants the sign in the ground, the gnorc screams when he sees Spyro flying at him, and is thrown off the mountain he was on by the purple dragon.
In the logo screen for Ripto's Rage!, a bonebuilder is leaning on the sign until a dinosaur comes along and snaps it into pieces while attempting to eat the bonebuilder. Then, the title appears and the dinosaur runs into it.
Year of the DragonEdit
In the logo screen for Year of the Dragon, a ninja rhynoc is hiding behind the sign and it tries to steal an egg, but Spyro charges him. The egg flies up breaks the Insomniac sign and stops rolling in front of Spyro.
- Although Insomniac Games developed the first three Spyro games, they never owned the rights to Spyro as most fans speculated and claimed. Universal Interactive did in fact own the rights to the Spyro franchise while Insomniac developed and created the characters, gameplay, and the worlds in Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.
- The CEO of Insomniac Games, Ted Price, reveals that he and his kids like Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, and he was disheartened by the follow-ups of the games he and his team had made when they walked away from the Spyro franchise years ago. He mentions that he is really happy for the Spyro franchise in the current universe of Skylanders. According to Ted, to see the Spyro series back with a fairly innovative concept, is really rewarding for the team who worked on the first three Spyro games.
