Additionally, the companies teased the announcement of a new Crash Bandicoot game on December 8, which is also the date of The Game Awards 2022.
The two pieces of news come via a new package sent out by Activision to influencers such as Canadian Guy Eh——a pizza box from “Aku Aku’s Steam-In Pizza Shack.” The receipt items read out “Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is coming to Steam October 18th.” The bottom of the receipt reads, “Hungry for more? Try out our new Wumpa Pizza for $12.08!”
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is currently available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Battle.net.
