Will There Be Crash Bandicoot 5? All Facts About The Game
Crash Bandicoot is one of the most well-known characters to ever appear in a Sony PlayStation game, but what do we know about Crash Bandicoot 5 right now? Fans of the platforming series saw the orange main character get back to his old self in the N. Sane Trilogy at the end of the last decade, but there were problems with Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
When Crash Bandicoot 5 comes out (if it comes out), hopefully, all players will be happy with what’s on offer. Here’s what we know about it, including what we’ve learned from leaks and when the game might come out.
“Crash Bandicoot 5, which has the code name “Globe,” is one of them. It will use the same ideas that were used for Crash Bandicoot 4, but new artists will make new characters and settings. During the story mode, there has also been talked of single-player and multi-player co-op.”

Possible Date of Release
We don’t know anything about when Crash Bandicoot 5 might come out. An article from Digital Trends from 2021 says that sales of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time was not very good
“SuperData says that in its first month on the market, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time only sold 402,000 digital copies. This is a lot less than Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which sold 520,000 digital copies in a single day.”
We’ll make changes to this page as we learn more about when the game might come out.
As of this writing (Monday, May 16, 2022), we don’t know if Crash Bandicoot 5 will be available for Xbox, Nintendo, and PlayStation as well.
For background, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy first came out on PlayStation 4 in June 2017, and versions for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One came out in June 2018.
We don’t know if the new title will continue this pattern, but it’s still interesting to note.
What Is Wrong With CRASH 5?
The mythical Crash 5 isn’t the fifth game in the series. This dubious honor goes to the 2004 movie Crash Twinsanity, which was not very good. In a brilliant move, Toys for Bob’s It’s About Time rewrote the story of later games and picked it up right after 1998’s Warped. Even though the latest news doesn’t have anything to do with the developer, it doesn’t look good for the Crash brand as a whole.
Remember when Crash Bandicoot and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater came back and everyone loved it and they sold great? Anyway the folks who made that happen will now be working on Overwatch loot boxes forever https://t.co/r4NaKYmRHG

With Activision’s most recent purchase, Vicarious Visions is now also under its ever-growing wing. If you don’t know, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was made by Vicarious. It came out in 2017 and led directly to Its About Time. We wouldn’t have started the reboot if the remastered trilogy hadn’t been such a hit.
The most important thing to know is that Vicarious Visions will stay in Albany, but will now only work on Blizzard games. So, you’re in luck if you like the loot boxes in World of Warcraft or Overwatch. It’s a bad day for the studio that brought Crash back to life and brought Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater back from the dead. One fan who was sad just wrote: “I would have liked for you guys to be on your own and keep making Crash, Skylanders, or whatever you want. We appreciate the happy memories.”
What Does Crash Bandicoot’s Future Hold?
This is the second big character to leave Crash, which doesn’t look good for the franchise. Die-hard Crash fans were already angry when it looked like Microsoft was giving the middle finger to PlayStation owners with the takeover, but that will be nothing compared to how angry they will be when they hear the latest news.

The court of Crash is not all bad news, though. Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision, said that they had a new way to “grow existing franchises.” Gamers may have seen this as a nod to games like Crash and Spyro the Dragon. Last year, Toys for Bob was also looking for a Senior Concept Artist, but we still don’t know what that means. As the months go by and Microsoft keeps beating its Call of Duty drum, it might take the magic of Aku Aku to bring us Crash 5.
