Robomodo Asked to Inlcude Crash in THPS5 - Couldn't Happen (Not Activision's Fault?)

There was a link to Robomodo's twitter account in the recent thread about the whereabouts of a patch for THSP5 and I noticed the above post while taking a look. With Crash still getting brought up years removed from the last game I thought it was worth noting.

I wonder what reason stopped it from happening aside from just timing issues. Perhaps the rights to the character have gotten more complicated in the Vivendi/Activision split?

I don't think anybody would want their brand associated with THPS5. Plain and simple.

Edit: OR MAYBE THIS WHOLE THING JUST GOT BLOWN WIDE OPEN

Makes me sick that (not yet King) Graham C
rackers
is playable. Tarnishing King's Quest like never before.

The less cameos in this game the better.

For Crash's 20th anniversary Activision will release a limited edition Crash Skylander figure. Happy 20th anniversary Crash!

I'm surprised they never brought him to Skylanders. They could probably make a trailer of him reuniting with Spyro or something. He'd probably fit in quite well

Last year I didn't think there was a chance in hell that Sony would go through the trouble of purchasing the Crash IP just to satiate like 1000 fans or so...but then E3 2015 happened and they've gone completely nuts.

For all we know, at PSX they'll announce that they've bought SEGA, and hired Kojima to direct the next 3D Sonic game.

A higher power realized THPS5 was shit, so it intervened and stopped crash from being subjected to even more punishment.

That higher power is known to the mortal man as
Sony.

I'm sure Activision didn't want Crash to be associated in thps5 but Sony was cool with Ratchet, Sackboy, and a sweet tooth head anyway. Lol.

Yoooo, is it happening? Did Sony actually come through? If they announce a modern Crash Bandicoot game, you may never see me again.

Universal still owns the character. You know like they always have, even when they allowed Sony to make the games for them in the 90s.

Although people are going to still tell you that Sony owned the character.

Yup, at the very least Universal would give the OK to Sony to make a new game in the series or some such.
