We know that a huge portion of the gaming industry is made up of rumors and hopes, and this latest news proves just that. It seems for some gamers, Crash Bandicoot is far from dead and will look a lot further into things and come up with a theory that might seem unbelievable.
It is no secret that Naughty Dog created the first Crash Bandicoot and not long after sold the rights to Activision, where the franchise would slowly suffer a painful death because they could never recreate the magic of Naughty Dog, who as we know is considered one of the finest game developers out there.
Rumors of a Crash Bandicoot PS4 release has intensified this week as all signs of the franchise have been removed from the Activision website. This could mean that Crash will be back because Sony could have done a deal with the publisher.
Another peace of evidence in the puzzle is from the PS4 launch video, which is explained in a video here. It seems that people are reading into things far too much,
We personally do not foresee a PlayStation 4 release for Crash Bandicoot or that Naughty Dog would develop it, as some rumors would suggest.
Let’s say that it was going to happen, then Sony would not be able to rely on Naughty Dog for two reasons. Firstly, most of the team who worked on the project have moved on, and secondly, the dev is hard at work on Uncharted 4.
