When Spyro: Reignited Trilogy launched last November publisher Activision said they would "evaluate" subtitles moving forward, providing the following statement:
"When Toys For Bob set out to make an awesome game collection, there were certain decisions that needed to be made throughout the process. The team remained committed to keep the integrity and legacy of Spyro that fans remembered intact. The game was built from the ground up using a new engine for the team (Unreal 4), and was localized in languages that had not previously been attempted by the studio. While there's no industry standard for subtitles, the studio and Activision care about the fans' experience especially with respect to accessibility for people with different abilities, and will evaluate going forward."
A new post on the Activision Support page has now revealed that subtitles have landed in all languages across all the games in the package, applying to previously unsupported cinematics, and there are a variety of options, as you can see in the patch notes below:
