Crash Bandicoot Multiplayer Brawler In The Works, Per Rumors

Rumors suggest that a Crash Bandicoot multiplayer brawler is currently in development at Toys for Bob. The marauding marsupial’s first platforming adventure launched back in 1996, and the series’ popularity has recently been reignited by a series of remakes and a brand-new title. Developer Toys for Bob created Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, an original new installment in the series released in 2020, and last year the developer teased a multiplayer Crash Bandicoot game too.

Naughty Dog’s work on Crash Bandicoot ended in 1999 with Crash Team Racing, and the beloved PlayStation series gradually fell into obscurity afterwards. Unsuccessful attempts to reinvigorate the series failed, leading to a long hiatus for the acrobatic anthropomorphic bandicoot. However, in 2017 Vicarious Visions released Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which remade Naughty Dog’s original trilogy and brought the franchise back into the spotlight. Developer Beenox subsequently released Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, which remade the 1999 competitive racing game, and then Toys for Bob created an original modern game titled Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. While no future plans for the franchise have been officially revealed, last year a fun new Crash Bandicoot project was teased by the titular character’s voice actor Scott Whyte.

On the latest episode of the YouTube podcast Windows Central Gaming (via GamingBolt), industry insider Jez Corden claims that a multiplayer Crash Bandicoot brawler will be announced soon. When his co-hosts suggest that a new Crash game will be revealed by Toys for Bob during Summer Game Fest, Corden specifies that he expects a multiplayer installment in the franchise to be announced. Described as a “four-player brawler,” details about the project seem to line up with Toys for Bob’s previously-rumored game Wumpa League. However, these leaks are unconfirmed as of writing.

While a multiplayer Crash Bandicoot brawler is certainly an exciting concept, the game may not be available to all fans. Following Microsoft’s purchase of publisher Activision, Crash Bandicoot will likely return on Xbox but could be left off of PlayStation or Nintendo consoles. This development is particularly surprising, considering the fact that Crash Bandicoot began as a PlayStation-exclusive series back in 1996. However, it has not yet been confirmed whether future entries in Activision properties like Crash Bandicoot and Guitar Hero will actually be exclusive to Xbox systems.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy breathed new life into the cartoonishly iconic franchise, and rumors suggest that Toys for Bob is developing an exciting follow-up to Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. A four-player multiplayer brawler would fit well with the series’ fast-paced gameplay and large roster of both heroes and villains. Jez Corden hints that the multiplayer Crash Bandicoot title will be announced during Summer Game Fest, so fans might be getting dragged into a modern-day Crash Bash soon enough.
