This week's news all came from the Activision Q4 Earnings Call.
The success of Skylanders Academy was reiterated once again.
Season one has been a success, season two is scheduled for later this year, and Netflix has officially ordered a third season for 2018.
This is good for the show, but does not indicate anything about the game. The show can continue on without the game.
There will NOT be a new Skylanders console game in 2017.
They will continue to support Skylanders Imaginators in 2017, but I believe there is some room for interpretation in their statements.
I don't think this guarantees anything past Wave 4 and Wave 5.
Finally, they announced that there is a mobile game in development. No details or dates have been given at this point.
