Attentive readers of the publication Licensing Source Book Europe found an unofficial announcement about the future of the popular series of platformers Crash Bandicoot from the studio Naughty Dog. Max Argyll, licensing manager for GB Eye, a game merchandising company, spoke about the grandiose plans of Activision for the famous Bandicoot.
According to Max Argyle, Activision, which owns the rights to Crash Bandicoot, has a five-year plan for the development of the universe. As reported, the huge success of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy – a remake of the first three parts of the series – with almost zero investments in the advertising campaign spurred the Activision to release the game on new platforms. Already this year N. Sane Trilogy will visit PC and Nintendo Switch. Moreover, in 2019, it is worth waiting for a new part.
The very first Crash Bandicoot was released in 1996 exclusively for the Sony PlayStation console. The development was then engaged in a little-known studio Naughty Dog (authors Uncharted and The Last of Us). The game was a three-dimensional platformer with a bandicoot named Crash in the title role. Gamers had to pass levels filled with all sorts of traps and puzzles, as well as bosses.
The news about the release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on PC and Nintendo Switch and release of a new game in the next year remains a rumor, not confirmed by the developers or the company Activision.
