Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Crash Team Racing and
Modern Warfare (the remake that launched alongside Infinite Warfare) are all proof of one thing – people love themselves some nostalgia in their life. Those games have all made Activision a small fortune. Other than Modern Warfare, they’ve been sitting on those goldmines forever and finally saw the light when they gave fans what they craved. It seems this popularity opened the sluice gates of what’s to come.
Rob Kostich, Activision President, told investors this week that they plan to work on more remasters (it’s actually remakes… *shakes fist*) of popular games from the past. We’re really hoping they get Neversoft to return to the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series, but they also plan to release new games for the remakes that did so well. In other words – expect brand new Crash Bandicoot and Spyro games, using the same engine and mechanics, but supplying brand new content.
When you look at our IP library, we think there’s a lot of IP in there the fans are going to want to experience again. I’d say stay tuned for some future announcements, but just beyond pure remasters, there are also a lot of opportunities now to innovate and think about totally new content within these IPs.
Don’t be surprised if a new Crash Bandicoot or Spyro game shows up next year.
