I love a badly kept secret, and Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy not being PS4-exclusive is one of them. Activision has been very coy on what other platforms the iconic platforming trilogy would be coming to, however a representative at PAX East has said the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is also coming to PC, complete with 60 FPS and 4K support.
You’ll want to head to around the 7 seconds mark to hear the confirmation. The audio is very quiet so you may have to crank it up a bit to make it out. However, the Activison PR rep can be seen saying it’s “4K on PS4 and PC, 60 frames per second across all platforms.”
Considering showfloor reps are often badly informed it would be wise not to take this as official confirmation just yet, however you’d have to guess she’s been clued in on something as basic as the release platforms for Crash Bandicoot. My one concern is that Crash Bandicoot actually runs at 30 frames per second on PlayStation 4, which throws a bit of a spanner into the works.
Anyway, I’d err more on the side of the Crash Trilogy coming to PC than it not. Sony doesn’t own any of the rights anymore so there’s pretty much nothing stopping Activision from releasing it on every platform under the sun. The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy includes Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, all in one bundle for $40.
After more than 20 long years, the original Crash Trilogy looks as if it’s coming to PC, will you be picking this one up? Or should old-school 3D platformers be consigned to the trash heap? Let us know!
