Something appears to be happening to the Crash Bandicoot IP. The franchise is currently believed to be owned by Activision, yet all traces of the game have been removed from the publishers websites, and the official Crash homepage has been reduced to a single nav bar.
The discovery was posted on Reddit yesterday, and is followed by rumours that the IP may have returned to Sony.
Could it be that Crash is making a return to PlayStation exclusivity at the hands of Sony, or has Activision just killed him dead?
There’s also this tweet to consider from Sony’s Adam Boyes:
@shinobi602 Activision owns the IP, so you should ask them about it…
