There's a new crash on the way. It has been in development for 3 years, and the marketing campaign is expected to start soon on the Activision side. I was told it would be one of the PS5 promotional games. There could be some kind of exclusivity, but it is not yet defined.

As a reminder, according to the latest rumors, a PS5 event would be organized in May to reveal the console and the first games of the latter. Hopefully, it is during this event that this Crash Bandicoot game could be announced. As with Call of Duty games, one can imagine that the game would benefit from content in preview on PS5. Or, why not, let the game be a temporary one-year exclusive, as was the case with Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy which arrived in June 2017 on PS4, then in 2018 on Xbox One, Switch and PC.
2020, the year of the Bandicoot?
In addition to rumors of a new Crash Bandicoot console game, there were also rumors of a mobile game. A little game that aimed to launch marketing communication. It was at the start of 2020 that "Crash Bandicoot Mobile" leaked from its publisher King. The idea is very simple, it is a very basic runner game. But already at the time, you were told that Activision had in mind to release a mobile game to relaunch the craze around the Crash Bandicoot license before the reveal of its big console game. With the release (on Android at the moment) of Crash Bandicoot Mobile, we can clearly think that things will accelerate in the coming days and weeks.
