I think it will come to the Switch eventually. I believe the developers who are making the Spyro remastered also did the Switch port for Crash.
The reason why Spyro is only coming to the PS4 and Xbox One is most likely because those two consoles are very similar in terms of hardware. If they bring it out on the Switch and Steam on launch, chances are that there will be a lot of optimisation problems etc...
I'm 80%-90% sure it will arrive on Switch and Steam. Activision have done it with Crash so they will most likely do it with Spyro.

Who said that?
I'm also keeping my fingers crossed for a Switch port since I don't have a PS4 or an Xbox One. Either way, it's nice seeing the franchise getting some more attention after all these years - it was my mum that got me into Spyro when I was a little kid!
There's an article from Nintendo Life which says this:
"It’s hard to believe a long-time dream will finally become a reality when Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy arrives on the Nintendo Switch at the end of this month. For many years now, owners of Nintendo systems have been deprived of this classic trilogy. Beyond the initial licensing concerns, it might have stayed this way as well, had it not been for one determined engineer at Vicarious Visions who happened to be a fan of the Nintendo Switch.
According to Nintendo World Report, sometime around the PlayStation 4 release of the N. Sane Trilogy, a lone engineer at Vicarious Visions spent his weekend trying to get the first level of the remaster up and running on Nintendo’s latest device. He managed to succeed, and it was at this point the company realised a port to the hybrid device was feasible.
Other than minor graphical modifications, the Switch version of the game will match the performance aspects of its PS4 counterpart. That includes running at 30 frames per second. The new 'Future Tense' level, shown at this year's E3, will also be available alongside the Switch release."
So it honestly sounds like Crash Switch wasn't even on the table until that bored engineer tinkered around with it so much. Hopefully if the sales on Switch are good (I see a lot of posts on Reddit that are either PC or Switch) they'll port Spyro over, too.
The Spyro remaster is fantastic. I beat all 3 games 100% (well, 120%/100%/117% ) and I was actually sad that I'd done everything! I loved the games so much as a kid, so it was great to experience it again.
If you played any of the originals and enjoyed it, definitely pick up the remaster. I can easily see myself starting up a new file in another few months/years and playing through them all over again, they hold up really well.
