Fans of Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon may have more to look forward to from Activision on the horizon. Activision announced plans to create more content for these iconic video game franchises at its investors’ call on Thursday.
This decision from Activision comes following the success of the most recent titles of the Crash and Spyro franchises. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled received largely positive reviews and sold particularly well digitally. Activision sold over 10 million copies of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Likewise, Spyro Reignited Trilogy has fared well in terms of both reception and sales, even before releasing on Nintendo Switch.
Revamping older Crash and Spyro titles has brought great success for Activision thus far. This has convinced Activision of the timeless nature of these games. In addition, it has encouraged Activision to create brand new games with the Crash and Spyro IPs. Activision believes that expanding these franchises could allow for significant growth within the company as a whole.
Activision to produce more Crash and Spyro content
After obtaining the Crash and Spyro IPs in 2008, Activision put both series on hiatus. The Crash series did not receive a new game after 2008 until the release of N. Sane Trilogy in 2017. The Spyro series had to wait even longer, with no games after 2005 (aside from Skylanders, of course) until Reignited Trilogy came out in 2018. But Activision’s recent comments may give fans more hope about the future of the series.
A solid stream of content related to these two gaming franchises will likely be coming from Activision in the coming years. And if the last three games are any indication, then Nintendo Switch users can likely expect to get their hands on these new games. Of course, no official announcement has been made about specific titles coming in the future. However, Activision has suggested that other franchises besides Crash and Spyro may be getting remasters as well.
