[UPDATED!] GB Eye Licensing Manager: N. Sane for Switch/PC, Another Game for 2019 & More!


Update 2: Max Publishing, the sole publisher of Licensing Source Book for Spring 2018, has removed/changed the entire blurb about Crash Bandicoot in 2018 and beyond.

Update: Eurogamer has confirmed that they verified with several sources regarding this and they’re confident that it’s coming this year “our sources have heard the same“.

This is a somewhat exclusive report from Crashy News as I was the first to find out about this blurb from GB Eye, but this is categorized as a rumor due to its nature. I would advise everyone reading this article to take what the Licensing Manager said with a grain of salt, since this might turn out to be bogus (unlikely but still). Anyways, let’s detail exactly what Max Arguile, the Licensing Manager for GB Eye had to say about Crash Bandicoot in the following quote:

Looking ahead to 2018 Max picks out Crash Bandicoot as one to watch: “The new game was a huge success at retail with no marketing spend. Next year it will be going broader (Switch and PC) and there will be another game in 2019. Activision have a give year plan for this and GB eye is delighted to be fully on board for all products.”

Max has detailed out that Crash Bandicoot’s 2018 and beyond will be a big deal as a result of the insane success that N. Sane Trilogy had last year, noting that:

  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be getting a Switch and PC release
  • Another game is coming out in 2019 
  • Activision has already set a long-term 5 years plan for the bandicoot in terms of releases and licensing

From the history of rumors and debunked “evidence” that has been popping out for the multiplatform debacle of N. Sane Trilogy, it is no stranger to see information like this coming out again in line with the beginning of the year ahead of Activision Q4’s Conference Call on February 8th, E3 and PSX events for the big news to come out. We all can’t wait to see what we have for the bandicoot beyond N. Sane this year and beyond, stay tuned.

Well, as we’ve entered the year of 2018 since quite a bit, it’s incredible to reflect on last year, thinking how much of a event the return of Crash Bandicoot was. The N.Sane Trilogy on PlayStation 4 has been a huge commercial success (selling over 3 million copies worldwide), has been greatly praised by both critics and fans and has escalated Crash back as a relevant icon of gaming.
