A new Crash Bandicoot game has been teased on social media ahead of The Game Awards later today. The game’s official Twitter account recently posted a tweet teasing a potential announcement for a new entry in the long-running adventure-platformer franchise, which is now being handled by developer Toys For Bob as opposed to original developer Naughty Dog.
The official Crash Bandicoot Twitter account posted a sly tweet recently asking “So… what’s everyone doing tomorrow?”, seemingly hinting at a new game announcement happening at The Game Awards. This isn’t the first time that we’re hearing about a new Crash Bandicoot game, though, especially in relation to the awards show.
Rumours of a new Crash Bandicoot game first surfaced in June this year, when it was reported that Toys For Bob were secretly working on a new game. The studio then teased a new game’s arrival in August, with another tease happening in October. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire and it’s highly likely that we’ll finally see the next entry revealed soon.
Toys For Bob previously worked on 2020’s Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, which received mostly positive reviews with many praising its return to basics as a quirky and often relentlessly challenging platforming adventure. Fans are hopeful that the next mainline entry, which will likely be Crash Bandicoot 5, will continue that tradition.
In related news, we have a handful of exciting reveals to look forward to at The Game Awards this year. Bandai Namco Games has confirmed that it will show off a new trailer for Tekken 8 (possibly with a release date), while Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida is expected to announce the JRPG’s release date – which already leaked ahead of the event.
The Game Awards kicks off at 2:30 AM in the early Friday morning for South Africans.
