New Crash Bandicoot Game On Its Way?


It seems Activion/Vicarious Visions let their countdown site go up too soon. They quickly pulled it but not before some visitors had a chance to snap a picture. (Crash Bandicoot, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Update Apparently, Detective GAF has exposed this as a fake. The wood used in the screenshot was ripped off the internet. Although the Vicarious Visions web designer could have done the same thing, it makes it less likely that this is real.

Its also in the crash font from the ps1 games. If he was back I'd shit myself. I'm sure he's back but as a dam skylander.

i hope one day sony buys back this IP

i want a Crash HD collection
I want a proper Crash game made by ND
gumgum99  +   489d ago
Sony never had it to begin with. Contrary to popular belief, it was owned by Universal, Not Sony. That's why when Sony bought Naughty Dog Crash was left behind.

Sony merely published Crash.
showtimefolks  +   489d ago
Oh I didn't know know that

morkendo23  +   489d ago
if CRASH is coming back will it be physical game? or DLC only?? if its a DLC activison can ram it up their ass.
if physical disc ya-HOOOOOOOO!!!!
Braid  +   489d ago
Even though it's confirmed as fake, I hope Naughty Dog can finally see that there are lots of gamers out there who are getting hyped up every time they see anything Crash Bandicoot related, and who are willing to buy a new installment in a heartbeat. Sly is back, why wouldn't Crash? We need titles like these to take a break from the blow-em-up kind of games.

Yea Activision does. That's something to brag about =\
SignifiedSix91  +   489d ago
I wish Sony still had the franchise. I want ND to make a proper Crash Bandicoot because i haven't played one in so effin long!

If it isn't made by ND, it's no good, unless they make it like the originals.
Dj7FairyTail  +   489d ago
yeahokchief  +   489d ago
Seeing as how they're already in bed with Sony with Destiny and Diablo it's not really too much of a stretch.

I'm still not buying anything from Activision Blizzard for my PS4 should I buy one.
jakmckratos  +   489d ago
I don't care if Sony isnt making it
LOL_WUT  +   489d ago
Then you clearly have never played the classics
Shadow Flare  +   489d ago
I've think everyone's misunderstood his point.

I think he's saying, if it isn't made by Sony (naughty dog) , then I don't care about the game

Maybe he should have worded it as eloquently as DonJogHurt below did

He IS talking about the classics. Jeez.
edenianrain  +   489d ago
I dont care if Sony isnt making it either,and I have played the classics,just because naughtydog isnt making it doesnt mean crash cant be good,crash wrath of cortex played just like the originals and it was good intro kart and tag team racing were good also,twinsanity was good,titans and mind over mutant did suck though,besides even if naughtydog still had it I doubt they would make a new crash,remember they actually move on to new things anyway.
Tei777  +   489d ago
and what are the classics if not the original trilogy made sony 1st part dev naughty dog??

You must be new to gaming.
LastXeno  +   489d ago

Ummm hello idiots..can you see my flagrant sony fanboy name...Sorry for my wording but I ONLY care if Sony makes the game..better fools? Thanks to the people with an ounce of intelligence..sucks this is a fake
Summons75  +   489d ago
Not by Naughty Dog and published by activision only means it's going to be terrible like every Crash game after Naughty Dog's run with it. Activision is a horrid company anyway, they make EA look like saints which is saying a lot after how they have been acting lately.
DonJogHurt  +   489d ago
Naughty Dog making it?


Then GTFO!
LOGICWINS  +   489d ago
I don't care whose making it as long as it turns out to be fun to play.
JohnApocalypse  +   489d ago
The one by Traveller's Tales was pretty good
Root  +   489d ago
It's the only Crash after ND which was good

I don't see why they didn't hold onto it...I thought it was funny at the time. Cortex was pretty hilarious

PHOSADRA  +   489d ago
This would be good news for PS All Stars
Considering how they have a trend of putting 3rd party characters in the game....who have an upcoming or recently released game.

admiralvic  +   489d ago
That's just marketing and also makes a deal easier to achieve. Also this is in no way limited to All-Stars, since Capcom did the same with Marvel vs Capcom 3. Virtually every character included related to something coming out or was probably added to get a feel of the market. Like Deadpool's popularity in 3 was most likely a selling point / feeler for the game.

Jek_Porkins  +   489d ago
I don't know if I believe this or not, I think platform games are a thing of the past if your name isn't Mario. I wouldn't mind seeing another Crash game if they did it right. I think the last decent on I played was on the Gamecube years ago.
Kran  +   489d ago
Jek_Porkins  +   489d ago
Hey, I love Rayman...but how do those amazing platform games sell? The reason we don't see a lot of platform games outside of Nintendo is because people aren't buying them!
_QQ_  +   489d ago
LBP, the upcoming Yarn Yoshi.Donkey Kong.
Jek_Porkins  +   489d ago
I said outside of Nintendo and you list two out of three for Nintendo. LBP is fun, but I am not sure it's a huge seller anymore. I think when it was fresh and new it sold the best, LBP 2 didn't sell nearly as well.

I'm not saying I dislike platform games, I'm saying the market is shrinking for them.

MultiConsoleGamer  +   489d ago
Please return to your roots Crash!
Root  +   489d ago

I don't want to see them do another Crash game

I want them to see it's worthless with them owning it and sell it to Sony. Same goes for Spryo since Insomniac doesn't want to do another Spyro game anymore
Kran  +   489d ago
Do bare in mind it was Sony who sold it in the first place because they felt the franchise wasn't getting anywhere, so instead of Sony rebooting it, they left it to someone else.

I'm not saying Activision is innocent either, but we're all acting as if it's all Activision and not Sony who are to blame on the acquisition.
Root  +   489d ago
Where did you hear that, thats a load of BS

Sony never even owned it, it was Universal who owned it and let ND make three games out of it and a racing game. Universal then sold it along with Spyro.
Kran  +   489d ago
Well then I was lied to :/
but if nd isn't doing it then i'm not excited, and if nd is doing it that means there probably wont be anymore uncharted games, which would kill me inside
SignifiedSix91  +   489d ago
There'll always be Uncharted games. Its one of Sony's flagship titles.

Also, ND have more than one team. Just sayin'.
gamefreak1198  +   489d ago
Naughty Dog only has 2 teams as of when they decided to create The Last of Us (Which I can't wait for) but originally they only had 1. One is currently working on TLOU and the other is working on something we don't know about but could probably guess is Uncharted 4 for the PS4 or another new IP (New IP is probably less likely because Uncharted could be a system seller)
-Gespenst-  +   489d ago
Oh diggidy damn! This just screams classic Crash! I hope this is real. There was already a classic Spyro hoax that was debunked a few months ago. Some guy started a twitter for the company who made Enter the Dragonfly claiming that they were working on a new Spyro that would return to the roots. Man that was disappointing....

EDIT: Just realised it's Vicarious developing it... sceptical.

Looks like another POS Crash game that is utter ****.

I still play the originals to this day.
Kratoscar2008  +   489d ago
Please, please. This guy had a shortlived but awesome reign in PS, he really deserve a come back.

The question is who should develop it?
LastXeno  +   489d ago
As long as it has the same art style and gameplay.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   489d ago
As long as this game has ties to Activision I doubt it'll ever be good.
e-p-ayeaH  +   489d ago

black911  +   489d ago
People wont care if it not a PlayStation Exclsuive. Same as if Mario came to the Xbox. Now it's different if Master chief went Multiplat.
Rockefellow  +   489d ago
If you believe that people wouldn't be in an uproar over Mario going multiplatform, you're delusional.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   489d ago
to this dy people are still pissed about crash and spyro going multiplat, i could give 2 craps about mario but i kmnow if he went multiplat nintendrones would flip, and halo is just an futuristic fps with a character thats boring as wallpaper, no one would care if it went multiplat.
Prcko  +   489d ago
I only trust Naughty Dog and sony when we come to crash,so no buy if sony won't develop!

lizard81288  +   489d ago
I remember there was a picture at acti in their Skylanders office/area and they had a poster of Crash in the back of the room. I wonder if that is what this is about. They have confirmed they are making another skylanders game. Maybe instead of Spyro, it is Crash now.
Rockefellow  +   489d ago
They've shown off the Skylanders game to the press; it's still Spyro-flavored, to be sure. That's a good thing, though! I'd hate to see what they'd do to Crash after seeing that disgusting abomination they call the new Spyro.
lizard81288  +   489d ago
Found it

It looks like he has bigger hands and stuff, but doesn't look as bad as spyro

Are we not gonna talk about the fact that even the root site doesn't currently exist? Crashbandicoot.com doesn't even exist according to google... The fuck? I call fake... Unfortunately.
ajax17  +   489d ago
If it's not from Naughty Dog I'll pass. Hopefully they'll regain the rights.
BertlSenix  +   489d ago
As long as Naughty Dog isn't making it exclusive for the PS4 i don't care

Activision will probably give Crash tons of weapons and let him scream " USA USA USA WE KILL EVERYONE" the whole time.
And of course he will be bald.

Give the IP to Naughty Dog or let the franchise sleep.

ND isn't the only dev who can make a great platformer, wish people will stop saying this.

It's like Mario Galaxy, Sly, Ratchet & Clank for example don't exist.
