Sorry to get your hopes up everyone, but despite completely wiping him from their website, Activision still owns the Crash Bandicoot series and will continue to sit on him until they can find a way to whip a few bucks out of him.
Activsion released a statement through Game Informer clearing up the issue raised on Friday.
“Activision owns Crash Bandicoot and we continue to explore ways in which we could bring the beloved series back to life.”
Let that rumor lie for a while because no Crash Bandicoot game is going to be made by Activision until they can find a way to turn him into an annual release or a horrible freemium title. This isn’t to say Sony would do any better with the franchise, but how is Activision supposed to make money off of him when it is too busy not releasing any games?
How is it supposed to revive him if it refuses to even acknowledge him on the official website?
