Crash Team Rumble’s Final Content Update Is Dropping Next Week

It will include all previous seasonal content, with no more live service support going forward.

With the news that developer Toys For Bob will be leaving the care of Activision and going fully independent, its been revealed that its most recent title, the competitive multiplayer platformer Crash Team Rumble, will be ending live service support this month with no more content updates to come.

The game’s final update will arrive on March 4th, which will bring a free 500-tier battle pass including 104 new items for players to unlock as well as all of the game’s previously-released seasonal content. From that point on, the game will still be live and playable but no future content will be added and Crash Coins will no longer be up for purchase (layers can use any existing Coins to skip tiers in the new battlepass).

The full message, which now displays when you boot up the game, says:

“March 4, 2024 will be the final content update for Crash Team Rumble.

“The core game will still be live and players will have access to a free 500-tier battle pass that includes 104 new items. This will include all of the Battlepass content from Seasons 1 through 3, plus all the available event rewards.

“Additionally, Crash Coin purchases will be turned off, and players can use their existing Crash Coins to purchase tier skips for the Battlepass.”

In it’s blog post announcing the move to being an indie studio, TFB wrote:

“We’re thrilled to announce that Toys for Bob is spinning off as an independent game development studio!

“Over the years, we’ve inspired love, joy, and laughter for the inner child in all gamers. We pioneered new IP and hardware technologies in Skylanders. We raised the bar for best-in-class remasters in Spyro Reignited Trilogy. We’ve taken Crash Bandicoot to innovative, critically acclaimed new heights.

“With the same enthusiasm and passion, we believe that now is the time to take the studio and our future games to the next level. This opportunity allows us to return to our roots of being a small and nimble studio.

“To make this news even more exciting, we’re exploring a possible partnership between our new studio and Microsoft. And while we’re in the early days of developing our next new game and a ways away from making any announcements, our team is excited to develop new stories, new characters, and new gameplay experiences.

“Our friends at Activision and Microsoft have been extremely supportive of our new direction and we’re confident that we will continue to work closely together as part of our future.

“So, keep your horns on and your eyes out for more news. Thank you to our community of players for always supporting us through our journey. We can’t wait to share updates on our new adventure as an indie studio!

“Talk to you soon!”
