Just yesterday, Activision started teasing a new Crash Bandicoot game through mysterious puzzles to influencers and members of the press. Today, The Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee has spoiled Activision’s big announcement of the new installment in the classic saga, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is coming for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee does not confirm the launch date of the game, however, the leak indicates the main setting of the game. Confirming the analysis reported yesterday, our favorite marsupial will go through a time travel and explore new dimensions.
Crash is relaxing and exploring his island in his time, 1998, when he finds a mysterious mask hidden away in a cave, Lani-Loli. The mask is one of the Quantum Masks and apparently knows Aku-Aku, Crash’s mask friend! With the Quantum Masks returning and a Quantum Rift appearing near our heroes, they decide to bravely head through to different times and dimensions to stop whoever is responsible.
Acording to analyst Daniel Ahmad, the game was planned to be announced during Summer Game Fest on June 22. He also states that the game won’t be launching on Switch.
