Activision exploring ways to bring back Crash Bandicoot

Fan demand isn't always enough to bring a series back though says Dan Amrich

Activision has confirmed that they are looking into ways to bring Crash Bandicoot back the gaming public after all references to the series disappeared from the Activision website.

He was a massive figurehead on the PSOne but his profile has dwindled off with his last appearance being the, now rare, Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant in 2008 on the PS2, PSP, Wii, DS and Xbox 360.

A statement released to Game Informer explained, "Activision owns Crash Bandicoot and we continue to explore ways in which we could bring the beloved series back to life." Activision exploring ways to bring back Crash Bandicoot

Their community manager, Dan Amrich, crafted a video response to the Crash question saying, "The game needs to have a really good reason to exist. Fan support is not enough to get a game made on the level that you're looking for. Now is not the right time for Crash Bandicoot. Will he ever come back? I have no idea."

I just hope he doesn't make a token return as a Skylanders figure.
