Crash Bandicoot 5- Will it ever happen?

The Crash Bandicoot series has been around since ’96 and since its inception it has become one of the most iconic platform game franchises of all-time. Recently, we go to see the release of Crash Bandicoot 5 on multiple game systems back in 2020. Activision’s Crash Bandicoot 4 game looked amazing mainly due to the use of the Unreal Engine 4 and is seen as one of the best entries within its own series. Crash Bandicoot 4 had great graphics and nice storytelling but many people would go on record and argue that the difficulty level of the game was unreasonable especially for casuals who are new to the series. Despite, being a critically acclaimed platform game Crash Bandicoot 4 had weak. Everyone knows that the Crash Bandicoot series had remained irrelevant for a majority of the 10’s decade outside of the N Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled. However, seeing that Activision had released a Crash Bandicoot 4 game that was well received by critics leads many people to believe that a sequel is on the horizon sometime in the future. While Crash Bandicoot 4 was a great game the landscape of gaming has changed significantly since the late 90’s and early 00’s with casual gamers having more preference towards RPG’s, shooters and action-adventure titles. A modern day Crash Bandicoot game is unlikely to have the level of commercial success that the older installments from the PS1/PS2 had due to more competition within the gaming world along with people having more options in terms of choosing what type of games they want to purchase. Even though, Crash Bandicoot 5 is rumored to be in development by Toys for Bob something that was discussed within a r/GamingLeaksandRumors subreddit post the legendary video game developer has yet to official confirm it.
