Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy became an instant success when it was released on PlayStation 4 last year. Even with little to no effort put into marketing, the game sold in record numbers and reignited Crash fever.

Now, Activision is reportedly trying to recreate that success by remastering the cult classic for a Nintendo Switch and PC release. The gaming company could also be releasing new Crash games for years to come.

The rumor is being circulated via a Reset Era thread pointing out that Max Arguile, a licensing manager of online retailer GB eye, went on record in a new issue of Licensing Source Book Europe and said Activision will release N. Sane Trilogy on Switch and PC this year. The licensing manager also said a new Crash game is in the works, set for release in 2019, and that Activision has plans to release new Crash titles through 2022.

While Activision has yet to confirm the rumors, they’re not too far-fetched to believe. A Crash release for Switch and PC makes complete sense considering the game’s fan appeal and the success of its 2017 sales.
