Rumors of Sony Buying Crash Bandicoot from Activision

Could there be another Crash Bandicoot game in the works?  More importantly, could the franchise be making its way back to the banner of Sony?  Based on information, the possibility is looking more and more likely, and indeed may have already happened – or be in the process of happening.  Though nothing is set in solid stone yet, a Reddit editor compiled a timeline of events which point to credible evidence that the very thing is happening to what was one of the Playstation 1’s biggest franchises.

Crash Bandicoot, though originally created by Naughty Dog (makers of Uncharted and The Last of Us), a noted Sony-owned developer, the franchise itself was actually owned by Universal.  After Naughty Dog made four games for the PS1, it was sold off to Activision, who took over generating more games for the remainder of the decade.  Though in recent years, it’s all but disappeared off the map, with the two most recent entries being Crash: Mind Over Mutant in 2008 for the PS2, PSP, Xbox 360, and DS, and then the mobile Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 for the iOS in May 2010.

Rumors of the sale by Sony from Activision first began last summer, and more compiled evidence points to the likelihood; including the fact that Activison website has been taken down, that all references to the franchise have been removed from Activion web properties, and that several titles that were intended to be published by Activision were all cancelled in 2010.  What’s more, in a PS4 launch commercial, there’s even a image of what looks like a Crash Bandicoot, with a sign pointing to a gold diamond, which is the logo of Sony Computer Entertainment.

Though this is all still rumor and speculation at this point, it’s hard not to get excited at the possibility.  Given the popularity of the series, and how long it’s been since fans have gotten another game, then any confirmation at all of a reboot will be cause for celebration.
