A few days ago there were rumors going around that Activision had sold Crash Bandicoot back to Sony, which meant there was a slim chance that we could see Naughty Dog take over as developer for an upcoming version of the much-loved franchise.
Okay, we say much loved, but only when the Uncharted developer was in charge of development because once Activision took over, it was downhill from there.
Most of us came to the conclusion that the IP had been sold back to Sony because there was no sign of Crash Bandicoot on Activision’s website. However, the publisher has confirmed that they have not sold the IP on.
That’s not all; Activision has also said that they would like to bring the series back, which makes us wonder if we could see an all-new Crash Bandicoot in 2014?
Why did the IP disappear from the Activision website in the first place? More importantly, how would you feel about another Crash Bandicoot game developed by Activision, or would you like to see Naughty Dog do what they do best?
