I'm surprised Crash did as poor as it did. The Crash Trilogy did amazing becoming a 10M+ seller and those were remakes of old games. I thought a new game would do even better but I guess not.
The trilogy most likely sold 10M+ because they were remakes of the old great games.
I think many doubted that Activision could make a great Crash game from scratch (myself included). Though, it actually does look like a fun game and I'll probably pick it up on PS5.
