Speculation: Will the 2019 Crash Bandicoot game (CTR/New Platformer) move to Unreal Engine 4?


EDIT 3: Beenox has confirmed that the engine Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is running on Alchemy (assumed to be a fork…)

EDIT 2: I’m not sure about it for Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled by Beenox, hopefully, some confirmation is coming…

EDIT: Turns out that the answer could probably be a “yes” to whatever Vicarious Visions is developing, it certainly isn’t for the remake of Crash Team Racing developed by Beenox. Let’s move the goal post to 2020…

Short answer without having to read the article: Yes, most likely.

Long answer: As we all know, Toys for Bob has currently two projects that utilize the Unreal Engine 4 as its base game engine, Spyro Reignited Trilogy and an unannounced multiplayer game that’s assumed to be still in the works. The question is will the next Crash Bandicoot project that’s staled for 2019 use the engine? There’s not much evidence to be found in job openings as of yet since they’re also working heavily with Bungie on Destiny 2 and should help with the move to the engine, but a clue from Vicarious Visions tells a different story.

Benny, a Software Engineer at the company, posted this picture on Instagram all the way back in October 2016 of this shirt that shows the fall of the Alchemy logo as a monolithic floating object falling into its demise at water level with a warrior looking at it on the left, captioned “Farewell Alchemy“. Vicarious Visions has recently expanded its studio adding 115 jobs, investing $7.3 million around August and recently posted two job openings looking for employees with experience on multiplayer games around an “Exciting new project and has assisted Toys for Bob on its development on Spyro Reignited Trilogy (not unusual for either of the studios as they consistently kept a close eye helping each other since Skylanders).

Joe Pearson talks about multiple aborted movie pitches attempted for Crash Bandicoot ft. Paramount


In the midst of Joe Pearson showing off some of the concept art that he had done for the original Crash Bandicoot game (1996), he showed off a stash of some tonal backgrounds designs from 1994 (listed below in the gallery) showing off the bridge from levels like Road to Nowhere and The High Road, somebody commented on why he feels like that “Crash Bandicoot should have a movie by now”.
