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.”
Further to this though, he spoke a little bit more about how they have other great IP in their portfolio that they will now look to bring back.
“We think we have other great IP in our portfolio that we’re considering, of course, but this isn’t new behavior for us. We’ve already shown the power that is Modern Warfare Remastered and Zombies Chronicles, and Crash Bandicoot is obviously another great example.” Hirshberg said
