Activision sends out mysterious Crash Bandicoot puzzle to members of the press

New game announcement likely incoming.

Before the announcement of Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Activision sent out a scaly purple egg to members of the press with the note “Something’s about to hatch.” And before the announcement of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Activision sent out fuzzy red dice with the message, “Sliding into the Game Awards on 12/6.” And now, Activision has sent members of the press a 200-piece puzzle with the message, “A little something to help you pass the TIME,” signed by “Your Favorite Bandicoot,” suggesting a new Crash Bandicoot game announcement is imminent.

Here is the puzzle, via IGN:
