Rumor: Crash Team Racing remaster to be announced at The Game Awards 2018

Another Crash title getting the remaster treatment?

Crash Team Racing

A Crash Team Racing remaster will be announced at The Game Awards 2018 on December 6, according to a Eurogamer report.

Earlier today, PlayStation Access presenter Hollie Bennet posted a photograph of furry red dice she received by mail—the kind you might hang on a car’s rear-view mirror—with the message, “Sliding into the Game Awards on 6/12,” signed by “Anonymous.”

According to Eurogamer, these are a tease for a Crash Team Racing remaster to be announced at The Game Awards 2018.

Crash Team Racing was originally developed by Naughty Dog and released for PlayStation in 1999. When Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy—a remaster compilation of the first three Crash Bandicoot titles—launched, it was released first for PlayStation 4, before coming to other platforms a year later. Whether the rumored Crash Team Racing remaster will do the same remains to be seen.

The Game Awards 2018 will broadcast live on December 6 at 5:30 p.m. PT / 8:30 p.m. ET via YouTube in 4K resolution, Twitter, Facebook, Mixer, Steam TV, PlayStation 4, Xbox Live, IGN, GameSpot, Polygon, MLG,, and more to be announced. It will feature more than 10 new game announcements, plus updates on existing titles.
