Over the past couple years, Activision has finally started paying attention to and supporting classic franchises like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon. In 2017, we saw the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remake featuring three classic games followed by the Spyro Reignited Trilogy giving the purple dragon the same treatment this year.
Now, according to Eurogamer, Activision will be remaking Crash Team Racing next, and is announcing it at The Game Awards.
This speculation began when Hollie Bennett, a PlayStation Access presenter, posted a suspicious image on Twitter. It featured a package she had received containing two orange and furry dice with the message “Sliding into the Game Awards on 6/12)”.
The orange furry dice seem to hint at the announcement being Crash Bandicoot related, and the reference to “sliding” would make sense due to Crash Team Racing’s emphasis on and trailblazing of drifting in kart racers.
This was all followed up recently by a report from Eurogamer that called this tease the “the real deal” and claims that Activision will, in fact, be announcing a Crash Team Racing at The Game Awards later this week. Activision obviously declined to comment on the whole matter, but its announcement wouldn’t be surprising considering there will be 10 world premieres at the show.
There is a chance this Crash Team Racing report could be false, so take this all with a grain of salt, but one can hope.
