    Rumor mill: Return of.. CRASH BANDICOOT!

    This is one that has been brewing in the ole rumor mill for a little while now. As it goes, Sony has seemingly bought the license to the Crash Bandicoot franchise back from Activision (who was doing nothing with it). It looks like today, things have started bubbling up from the cauldron so to speak:

    I would love to see Crash revived, personally! What do you guys think?

    Yep, all signs are pointing towards this.

    Here is the insider quote I posted about a few days ago:

    Source

    Crash Bandicoot is definitely on its way to the PlayStation 4. The PS4 is basically the second iteration of the PS2 and they are going to be bringing back some of the biggest games from that era. I did not get to see any game-play, but it is definitely in production. I spoke briefly to a friend whom I visited ND with about this the other day; it is possibly that ND is actually working with SMS on this game. I cannot confirm this, but it seems very plausible. There is a chance of a small teaser this year, or at least an announcement, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    This will be literally my most wanted game on PlayStation 4 if it's announced. I am that hyped.

    I like this news. I like it a lot!

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Never really liked the Crash games on PS2 but the PS1 games were epic.

    It's updated news and the other's fairly down the page - easy for the OP to miss, unfortunately.

    And yup, it's THAT big of a news story. It requires two threads.

    Well I still say from that last thread that guy making an unofficial Crash Returns needs to just be hired to make it.

    I loved this game/ But I dunno if they should do this.

    Very risky considering the amount of people expecting it to be (near) perfect. I'd rather them try something else.

    Doesn't have to be perfect the only thing I'd want is to go back to the style 1-3 had. I had Wrath of Cortex on PS2 the only gripe I had with it was it was too stiff(controls) plus long loading times other then that it was decent amount of fun.

    Also don't do what Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD did, and change/don't add things to certain levels that were there once before.

    Ah let 'em give it one more go. If it sucks, hey, we'll just forget it exists, eh? At least this time it won't be a run-of-the-mill project, it'll be one with newfounded ambition - one with extremely competent developers on hand to take over the reigns. If Sony have indeed reacquired the license they know more so than anyone else the impact Crash has had and can have once again. It's a goldmine for them. They'd be extremely naive to relegate this opportunity to some second-tier development afterthought.

    If it means Naughty Dog's other team isn't working on a new IP, I'd rather not see a new Crash Bandicoot.

    Crash has major potential to be a system seller if its executed properly. Could possibly MS or Nintendo pick up the property?

    Edit: Also; would Sony ever agree to an exclusive without obtaining the property?

    Saying this right now I was reading a few comments on the front page about this, but I'm sorry I'll take another Crash Bandicoot from ND or Sony over even Jak and Daxter or Uncharted even The Last of Us(Yeah I said it).

    This game is my childhood, and really it should have been as big/popular as Sonic, Mario, and Zelda whatever may have you right now.

    Personally this is just correcting an injustice from many years ago everyone at this point knows(if you gamed in the 90's/even early 2000's) That somewhere Crash should have been the Mascot.
