It's pretty simple.

Sony has absolutely no reason to not announce the game as being exclusive if it is. They've been teasing it for years now, why would they not take credit for it if a deal was in place.

What's the point of this kind of deal if you can't even say that it's exclusive to your platform?

I didn't even know there was a Playstation Ireland, we usually just get lumped in with the UK in such matters.
Indeed this is the main thing I took from this thread

We have a PlayStation Ireland...although it's probably not ran from here

I'm guessing Xbox/PS4/ MAYBE switch. and a chance at PC? i mean destiny never came out on PC for some reason..

My assumption is that this game is PS4 only for a limited time 6 months to a year. Then if it has sold well Activision will decide if it's worth porting elsewhere and making more games in the franchise again.

Of course I'm probably wrong.

I'd guess 4 months, Acti will want it out for Xmas especially with no new skylanders game to sell
I dont see it coming out on other platforms this year. Dont think they will need the push with Destiny 2 and CoD out around the Holiday season and let Sony bundle it in a holiday bundle and release Jan/Feb 18. And announce it at the VGA's

I wonder if Acti will try and charge more on other platforms when it comes out.

12 month timed exclusivity has been a killer for some games, plus destiny 2 and COD are hardly the same market as Crash

12 month wouldnt be too bad if they announce a new game this year for holiday 18.

but i think it will be early next year on whatever other platforms it gets released on. and hope it does well enough to remake the first 3 Spyro games.

So release crash trilogy on switch/bone june 2018 and new game on ps4/switch/bone xma 2018? Thats a terrible release strategy

the only thing about all this that confuses me is that sony still owns the patents for the original crash trilogy...like, those original games never appeared on any other platform but wouldn't that be broken with the nsane trilogy since they are current gen replicas of the original works?
