IGN Access: "Was Crash Bandicoot hinted for a return at PlayStation Experience? The guys chat about the possibility of a Bandicoot future."
You gotta look at it this way, Crash bandicoot was first hinted in that Sony commercial showing a icon of crash and an arrow pointing up towards a sony logo and then you had the Crash games removed from the Activision website. Also, Activision has had a very close relationship with Sony ever since Destiny and the BO3 expansions coming to PS4 first. So, Crash will most likely be revealed, if not now, then down the line when they are read even though we've been waiting a very long time haha. To add on a note, Naughty Dog has 2 unannounced titles coming to PS4, we all know TLOU2 is one of them and Crash Bandicoot could most likely be the other unannounced title, fingers crossed :)
Just imagine if you was Phil watching how much gamers want this game... With Microsoft's money he went to activision gave them an offer they can't refuse and buy the rights Sheesus the online meltdown that would happen would be of atomic proportions... Personally i couldn't play crash on anything but playstation.. Wouldn't feel right
Crash Band 1 was one the hardest games ever built in order to complete it 100% (but in the same time fair and enjoyable)..i play it nowdays trying to repeat the same thing and i wonder where i was finding so much patience that days
Add to it before all that in PlayStation Meeting conference (where the PS4 announced) Sony introduced Mark Cerny with Crash music (yes he's the creator of the game but still he made more games so why Carsh specifically?).
Yes, at E3 2016. Believe!
I think the same thing E3
You think Naughty Dog will partner with Activision? And will it be an PS4 exclusive or multiplatform?
I'm not sure mate. We'll have to wait and see.
Lol, I'm still trying to figure out why am I getting disagrees for what I said. Crash should be a Sony exclusive IMO.
to much money for activision to leave on the table , anybody else maybe but Activision love money and they know they can make a ton more by having it on all plats .
It is. Sony wouldn't keep on teasing it like they've been doing if they had no plans to bring it back.
Recently, I had the chance to attend The Game Awards 2015 in Los Angeles and spoke with Adam Boyes at the after-party event. He specifically said, "Activision own Crash Bandicoot." I asked, however, if that was the case, then why was Crash in the European "4 The Players" trailer. He let me know that the European marketing coordinators don't have as much direct structuring when it comes to characters they use in their advertisements. "They just do what they want", he said. He had mentioned that Ryu was featured in that exact same trailer more than a year before Sony even secured the exclusive deal with Capcom for Street Fighter V, as an example of their "random marketing". I brought up how it was oddly specific that it showdown an arrow pointing to the SCE logo and he remained adamant to saying, "I don't know, it's the European marketing guys doing their thing, I guess." But Shawn Layden came out at PSX 2015 with a Crash Bandicoot t-shirt and Shu Yoshida also said, "I don't know" which is a similar answer to Boyes' from TGA, so we'll just have to wait and see.
Sounds like they're either trolling or they really just don't know. LOL!!!
I think it is. That t shirt was a clue/tease
I think that T-Shirt was just a T-Shirt and didn't have any type of meaning behind it...
Maybe he was just showing pride that he's been with Sony for a long time and that's he's proud of their overall legacy by wearing an old school t-shirt?
Idk why anybody really wants another Crash Bandicoot game. - Activision holds the rights, which means Naughty Dog won't work on it. Another dev working on it after Crash of the Titans debacle just wouldn't be enough to sell well. - The original trilogy wasn't fully 3D like Mario 64. Jak & Daxter however continued the spirit of CB and put it into a real 3D setting. Crash Twinsanity was 3D, but the devs that worked on it are disbanded, and you don't even see people asking for an HD remake of that game.
Get the rights back, Sony!!
yes! get excited people!
The only Crash Bandicoot game I'd like is a sequel to Crash Team Racing. I enjoyed that more than Mario Kart back in the day.
yeah that was my most played game on the PS1
I really hope it's coming back, would be mean after all these teasers if Crash Bandicoot is not coming back to Sony. Activision has no plans for the series, just sell the ip for Sony already. Even if Naughty Dog doesn't want to work on the new game, many studios could make an awesome game for the series, like Sanzaru Games or SCE Japan Studio.
Well i hope that T-shirt shall bring the pressure needed by Sony to bring Crash back home to the Playstation brand.
Yoshida tweeted to someone who said "Shawn Layden was wearing a Crash Bandicoot shirt, will we see a new crash game soon? (fingers crossed)... Yoshidas reply? "I doubt it." What a savage.
