It’ll come as no surprise, surely, but it looks like Activision is ready to capitalise on Crash Bandicoot’s revival with a new game in 2019. Or at least that’s according to merchandising company GB Eye.
According to the firm, Activision will release a brand new Crash Bandicoot game in 2019, while last year’s N. Sane Trilogy will get a release on PC and Nintendo Switch this year. There’s no mention of Xbox One, and if we’re being honest we can’t imagine Activision not wanting to release the game on Microsoft’s machine. Though that being said, Sony has been close to Activision when it comes to Crash Bandicoot, despite no longer owning the rights to the furry orange bugger. We wouldn’t be surprised to find Sony paying Activision a healthy sum to keep the former PlayStation mascot off of the Xbox. Seems petty, though, doesn’t it? Means it’s probably true…
GB Eye also mentions that Activision has plans for the Crash Bandicoot property all the way up until 2022, though it’s not clear what that means. It could be that new releases and remasters release on alternate years, but that’s just our guess.
