Amid rumours of Skylanders cancellation dev Vicarious Visions is now working on Destiny

Stealth Skylanders article.

Skylanders developer Vicarious Visions is going to be working on Destiny in a joint effort with Bungie.

"Vicarious Visions is excited to announce that we are partnering with Bungie to further expand the Award-Winning Destiny Universe", Bungie said on Twitter.

This is amid various reports that Skylanders, as a series, has been cancelled following poor sales of its 2016 entry Skylanders: Imaginators, which saw a 41 per cent decline following Skylanders: SuperChargers in 2015. Imaginators only sold 66k retail copies in the US during October, which publisher Activision deemed in a recent financial report was below its expectations - as was viewership of its Netflix show Skylanders Academy.

It's worth noting, however, that Vicarious Visions occasionally works on non-Skylanders projects, such as the upcoming PS4 Crash Bandicoot remaster Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy - which is shaping up quite well. As such, one can't definitely say that the developer isn't toiling away on a Skylanders game on the sly, but it certainly adds credence to these rumours.
