Crash Bandicoot is one of the most iconic characters to ever grace the Sony PlayStation series of consoles, but what do we currently know about Crash Bandicoot 5?
Fans of the platforming series saw a return to form for the orange protagonist towards the end of the last decade with the N. Sane Trilogy, but there were issues with Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
Hopefully, the (potential) eventual release of Crash Bandicoot 5 will see players across the board happy with what is on offer!
Here is everything that we currently know about Crash Bandicoot 5, including leaks and when we may see the game come to life.
According to a leak discussed on the r/GamingLeaksandRumours Subreddit, there has been talk of Toys For Bob already working on Crash 5.
The original poster for the thread noted: “Comes from 4Chan so take it with a grain of salt. To summarise:
“Toys For Bob is currently seeking staff for several new games.
- “One of these is Crash Bandicoot 5, codenamed “Globe”. It will retain the concepts made for Crash Bandicoot 4 but new artists will be called in for exclusive characters and settings. There is also talk of single-player and multiplayer co-op during the story mode.”
As this leak originally comes from 4Chan it should certainly be taken with a grain of salt and is not definitive by any means as of writing.
Potential Release Date
We do not currently have any information regarding the potential release date of Crash Bandicoot 5.
Unfortunately, the sales of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time were quite poor, according to an article from Digital Trends back in 2021:
“According to SuperData, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time sold only 402,000 digital units within its first month on the market, which was noticeably lower than the performance of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which sold 520,000 digital units in a single day.”
We will update this page as and when we know more about the potential release date of the game.
As of writing (Monday 16th May 2022), we do not currently know if Crash Bandicoot 5 will be coming to Xbox and Nintendo consoles as well as PlayStation.
For context, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy first appeared on PlayStation 4 in June 2017, and versions for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One were released in June 2018.
We have no idea if the new title will follow this trend, but it’s interesting to note nonetheless.
