Naughty Dog Effectively Rules Out A Return to Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter

Although rumours have continued to persist over the past couple of years about Sony potentially re-acquiring and reviving the Crash Bandicoot series, it looks like if it does ever happen, it'll be without original creator, Naughty Dog.

Too bad, I'd prefer a new crash made by naughty dog than another Uncharted or TLoU.

Thatguy-3101448d ago

Naughty Dog has outgrown games like Crash. If they try to work on it again it will be hard because of how they change as the years went by. I think Media Molecule is a studio that can do the IP justice because its on the realms of the games they currently make. Naughty dog has grown to become a narrative driven studio so New mature IP's is what they'll mostly be aiming for

What would you have said if ND stuck to the original idea about Uncharted? It would've been in the same style as Crash / Jak.

garrettbobbyferguson1448d ago

No. The talent that worked on those games has all but left. They recently worked on Sonic Boom. Which is a shame because now all they work on are Uncharted like games. And I wouuld rather have Crash or Jak and Daxter than another bloody Uncharted.

Out grown games like Crash? I would much rather play an awesome platformer like Crash Bandicoot than any of the overrated games that ND has made like Uncharted or TLoU.

Narrative doesn't make a mature game.

That's just one-sided.

I'm sorry but please don't waste ND time with crash. The game was great for its time and that's it. Just like sonic should have stayed in the past. Jak and Dexter maybe but not by ND. I would rather see a new IP.

After UC4, I hope its time for something new. I want to see what else they can do.

Different story within The Last of Us universe would not be bad either.

Stopher921448d ago

Agreed! I'd give anything for another Jak or Crash game. Every year around the GDC, PS Experience, and E3 time, I always think to myself "this is gonna be it, this is gonna be the year they finally give us what we've been waiting so long for!" Nope, instead we get shooters and a few decent indie titles. I've been waiting so long for a proper AAA platformer like Crash. Maybe one day.. I won't give up hoping

Why are they so stupid and not making a new crash game ?. Cant they Think, give the fans what they want...

BiggerBoss1447d ago

They dont own the rights to the game, so "giving fans what they want" would be illegal.

They also ruled out those rumors of The last of us coming too PS4. So there's Still Hope

Hopefully Sony passes Jak and Daxter to another in house studio like they did with Sly Cooper. Hate to see Jak and Daxter be one of those forgotten franchises of Playstations past like MediEvil, Legend of Dragoon, Wild Arms, Parappa the Rapper or Um Jammer Lammy and Blasto to name a few franchises.
