Crash is coming, no doubts about it.

Very possibly but I seriously hope it's not going to be made by Naughty Dog - unless they have a small team on the side doing it. The people that made the original game have mostly left the company so it's not like there is a ton of history there.

Let me speculate a bit here.

We know this generation has yet again increased development costs for your average AAA game, and the manpower required to make them has gone up. ND has split into a two teams studio after Uncharted 3, and it's quite possible that after Amy Hennig's departure, and due to Uncharted 4's demands, they had to merge back into one team. Now to make sure Sony continues to get around 2 Naughty Dog games per 3-4 year periods, and to make sure all talent can be retained and kept busy at all times, I find it likely that they would want to have a smaller team that can deliver smaller games in between their big AAA releases. That's how I could see Crash coming back under ND.

The one thing that got me from that easter egg was afterward when Ellie literally said "Well you got what you wanted" I really hope Crash comes back but that kind of seemed like it was a nod to the fans.

Impossible to beat it in the first one, easy in the second one.

Your avatar looks like my artwork ... but I don't think it is...?


By the way...I was speaking to my fellow Crash Twinsanity developers yesterday, and we were discussing maybe creating a documentary with interviews, and the like, from the development of that game. Would any of you be interested in seeing such a thing?

Yes, it is, just redone by my sister!
Absolutely, I would be totally down for seeing that!

Would you be able to show art/videos from cancelled levels, ideas, etc?

Unfortunately, I don't think we have any footage that hasn't already been leaked on the internet .... but we've def got lots of stories about the development.
What I'll do is have a talk with everyone, and see if they'd be interested in putting something together ... might take a while, so don't take it as official yet...but it's good to know there is some interest :)

I'm intrigued about Crash's future (but have no inside info/knowledge) so I'll be keeping an eye on this E3 also! :)

Wow, that would be amazing :D! If you need a writer to help out with anything, let me know and I will help anyway I can! While it will be a good bit before I get to the game, can't wait to cover Twinsanity for the Retrospective series; personally one of my favorites in the series :D.

Does it matter? They did a mature game for the first time with TLOU and hit it out of the park. I feel like they could excel at any genre if they truly were passionate about making the game.

I love it when there are actual older games that are playable in newer games. My favorite way this was done by far was in MGS4. Wolfenstien's implementation was also pretty cool as was Uncharted 4. Any others that I'm missing?

I feel like this should have its own thread soon, especially discussing the implications of a possible licensing deal regarding Crash. I'm not raving and hollering that they've bought Crash, but I also have a hard time finding a situation where I believe Sony would pay out for a licensing deal just for this.

That feels like something that should have been clarified to the player for the purposes of the trophy :V

Yeah, I was actually expecting the same thing lol.

I beat the first playable Crash level without dying but man, the controls are janky compared to the original.

Apologies for double posting but I just beaten Uncharted 4...

In the epilogue after beating the Boulder level again, you can pick up the Crash game case. But have a closer look at the box art...

The Universal Studios logo DOESN'T appear on the cover AT ALL. Not even Activision in this case who owns the IP. And no, you can't rotate the camera in Photo Mode to look at the back of the case. Pretty sketchy if you ask me.

They have to own Crash now or they'll be sued to death.

Remember when Uncharted 4 had the uncredited Ubisoft art? Sony took down the video and quickly replaced it.

Pretty much. This isn't just something you'd forget about. Every trademark Sony doesn't own (such as Polaroid, for example) is mentioned in the credits. This is a requirement enforced by law, and failing to comply can lead to a hefty fine and a lot of trouble. Not even Naughty Dog's 30th anniversary art book was exempt from including Activision in the credits, since it contained pictures of Crash. As you can see, this is something that even applies retroactively.

I don't know much about how the inner workings of these company's and how they work but, with Activision working close with Sony for games like Destiny and COD series I could see a collaboration or a deal for the rights back. For agreements with having maps and content first on PS4 it's a win win for both parties.

Or they could have asked permission to use Crash in the game.

I agree that all the denials by Sony is just smokescreen though.

Even if they got permission from Activision they'd still have to put their name in the credits as the IP holder.

Absolutely. If Crash was still Activision's property, Sony would be legally obliged to include their name in the credits as the owners of Crash Bandicoot. This kind of copyright notice needs to be available and visible to each and every customer buying the product.
