    Take it with salt, but:

    Max Arguile, Licensing Manager of GB Eye, a licensed merchandising company in Europe, goes on record in the new "Licensing Source Book Europe" from DHX Brands and claims the following:
    • Activision will release N.Sane Trilogy on Switch and PC in 2018
    • There's a new Crash game coming in 2019
    • Activision has plans for Crash titles through 2022

    Crash not getting a new game would be shocking at this point

    I think it should also be in the Switch rumor archives, no?

    Switch but not XBO?

    I very much doubt it.

    Once it’s been confirmed to not be fake.

    Been anticipating a switch port for a while especially since Activision promised more switch support

    Seems like a good fit for the Switch if true! I'm really interested to see Vicarious Vision's take on a Crash 4 too. Unless it's actually the new/remade CTR people think Sumo's doing.

    Why not Xbox?

    Buy the collection traded it in crash 1 is to hard and frustrating and the controls were to stiff to play

    I have no interest in it on PS4 rn but if it comes to Switch I might pick it up

    Why? At this point it’d probably sell better on the Switch

    NST on Switch and PC is a no brainer. They should port to Xbox as well.

    I am almost positive this is true. They own Crash, not sony.

    I don't think a new game will be good. Crash has always been poor post the PS1, I don't know if they can bring back the magic. They are not Naughty Dog.

    Bring'em!

    Sure but an XBO version would be easier to make. There's no reason to skip it.

    Sales prediction numbers are against success possibly, considering how few successful platformers there’s been on the system

    Given the immense success of the game and the ton of merch released in the last 6 months, not surprising and very likely true.

    This is just my speculation, but it's been made clear as day by Activision and Vicarious Visions that Sony came to them with the idea for this. Could be that they're in some sort of agreement as to which platforms the game can arrive on. It's also possible Arguile simply left Xbox out for no reason and it's coming to everything under the sun.

    This coming to Switch makes sense. This is the kind of support we need from Activision

    Furthermore, Crash on PC equals MODS.

    I hope they make a game like Twinsanity. I really liked that game despite it flaws.

    CTR incoming soon! Right? Right?!

    Well there was the timed exclusivity thing going on....I was always dying to play this and I think it will look amazing on the Switch. Vicarious Visions are extremely talented.

    Does the 'five year plan' involve releasing a half-finished game to then feed players the rest of the levels through DLC?

    Did not expect them to pick this back up. Wonder what a new Crash game even plays like.

    What if the new game is a CTR remaster with online?

    I would buy N sane trilogy again if it came to the Switch.

    Hmmmm. I own and love my Switch, but I feel half the nostalgia for the Crash remaster was that he was synonymous with the PlayStation brand and people were happy to see him back where he belongs. Releasing a new game as multiplat removes the feeling that he's part of the PlayStation family. I think Activision should keep him exclusive even without any Sony deal. It weakens the brand

    We'll keep asking until it happens.

    Give us CTR!

    Crash Team Racing Remake please.
    Bit surprised they haven't said anything about the Remakes going elsewhere yet, no Xbox would be a surprise too.
     
  37. #37
    I think it’ll come to Xbox too no reason not too

    Crash should stay exclusive to Sony because of branding for you? You’re joking?

    Interesting... but the game took ages to load on a ps4, can they really make it run ok on a switch?

    Still waiting for ctr btw

    You seem so certain even though this might actually be real.
     
  43. #43
    That seems more likely.

    There have been 9 CB games on Nintendo Platforms already, 4 of them exclusive. He hasn't been part of any platformholders "family" for two decades now

    I always thought Twinsanity was the best one. Great humor, amazing soundtrack, and great platforming. Would love to see the series continue off of this, rather than keeping him going through corridors like the Naughty Dog games.

    More sales = weakens the brand? Wut? I'd argue a bigger install base would widen it. For example, it'd be my first time playing a Crash game and I've heard they're quite good.

    Loading tends to be more efficient on switch due to both its card format and internal memory having a slightly faster transfer rate than the ps4s harddrives

    Definitely seem more likely that Sumo's kart racer is CTR.

    If this is true, do platformers not tend to sell well on Xbone? Could be a reason why it’s not coming to Xbox
