If you have stuck with PlayStation for a long time then you might know about Spyro and Crash Bandicoot. Sony’s beloved and aged IPs captivated gamers back in the day and it seems that they might do so again at some point in the future. The company is probing a possible revival of these IPs though it is still too soon to be certain if they’re really going to be back for good. One thing is for sure though, Sony isn’t closing the door on them.
CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Andrew House gave an interview to the Telegraph when he was in Brighton to speak at the annual Develop conference. It was a particularly special time for PlayStation as it enters its 20th year.
Drawing a comparison with Nintendo, which revived many of its beloved franchises and characters like Zelda, Super Mario and Pokemon, House was asked if a Crash Bandicoot or Spyro revival is on the cards anytime soon.
“This is very dangerous ground,” House says, adding that it is a concept that the folks at Sony have been thinking about and discussing. “I definitely wouldn’t close the door on that,” he says, adding that Sony knows how these characters are still talked about and the fact that they played a big part of some gamers’ childhood or youth.
I for one would definitely want to take a go again at Crash Bandicoot on my PlayStation 4, what about you?
