The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has clearly been a major success. A combination of nostalgic fuelled hype as well as the fact that there were almost no other major releases in June/July has made it a worldwide success.
In a investor call, Activision Blizzard revealed that the success of game has been well beyond their expectations. The CEO Eric Hirshberg said: We knew that there was a passionate audience out there for Crash–full disclosure, myself among them–but we had no idea… it’s hard to tell if that’s a vocal minority or that’s a real mass audience until you put something out there. Crash has surpassed all of our expectations by a pretty wide margin.”
