Over the past year, rumors swirled around a potential new Crash Bandicoot game in development at Toys for Bob. Another rumor points toward an incoming reveal at Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, according to Windows Central journalist Jez Corden.
Windows Central Chaturdays Podcast guest Rand Al Thor also suggests that the reveal could arrive during Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. Corden asks about where Rand got this information, implying that the information is true. The new Crash Bandicoot game seems to be a multiplayer-focused project with up to 4 players at once.
Toys for Bob developed Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time before transitioning to being a Call of Duty support studio. However, impending changes coming with the Activision Blizzard acquisition by Microsoft could allow Toys for Bob to continue working on Crash Bandicoot and franchises outside of Call of Duty.
The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase is set for June 12th. Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard is expected to close by June 30th, 2023.
