Those are some great sales.

It would be mighty dumb of Activision not to make a new Crash game if a remake can sell 10 million.

Crash and Spyro remakes are selling as much as they're selling "because" they're remade, not "even though"

It's blindingly obvious that they achieved that by capitalizing on nostalgia and Naughty Dog/Insomniac's design. History will repeat itself and future Crash sales will plummet again unless the series is handled by some very talented and innovative teams.

And why can't they be handled by a talented team? It's not like Naughty Dog are the only studio in existence capable of making a good Crash game.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Ah please, I didn't say any of that.. but Activision isn't the best publisher, and I don't remember the last decent platformer they developed themselves, so there is a lot they're gonna have to prove.

This game selling over 10 million in no way ensures a similar success in an all new Crash game.

But it does suggest the IP is worth continuing, and while I may be pessimistic by nature I'm open to the possibility that such a continuation could be worthwhile.

A good crash game just isnt enough. Naughty dog are the only studio that are capable of making crash great again. That is why crash 2 and 3 are still the best in the series and crash team racing is by far the best crash racing game.

Nah, I don't believe for a second that only one studio in all of history and existence can make a great Crash game. How many others, of all the studios ever, even had a shot?

EDIT: I looked it up. 5. So because those 5 couldn't, nobody else ever can? That's absurd.

Many studios including activision and konami have tried and failed. Naughty dog are the only studio i believe that could make crash great again after all they did create crash

The teams that developed the Crash & Spyro remakes were the former Skylanders developers and those were well received action-platformers. Vicarious Visions & Toys for Bob are more than qualified to make original Crash & Spyro games.

Activision has never made a Crash game until N. Sane Trilogy. The last main title released in Oct 2008 only 3 months after Activision merged with Vivendi so the game was essentially complete before Activision had control over the IP.
