Xbox 'dedicated' to bringing us new Crash Bandicoot and Spyro games

One insider has reassured Crash Bandicoot and Spyro fans that Microsoft is “dedicated” to bringing back both franchises following its acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

It’s set to be a busy ol’ day for Microsoft. Later on, Xbox’s new strategy will be laid out during a special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast, hosted by Phil Spencer. This comes days after a leak appeared to suggest that Xbox would switch from a focus on first-party exclusives to a new third-party model. This would see Xbox games released on platforms like the PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch. It’s thought that Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves are the first in line to be ported over to the PS5, with rumours that major exclusives like Starfield could follow. Well, we should get confirmation later today.

The leak follows mass layoffs at Microsoft which saw 1,900 job losses. When it was spotted that Spyro and Crash Team Rumble developer Toys For Bob’s office had closed, it prompted many to worry that the studio had shut down. Thankfully, that is not the case. Toys For Bob very much remains active but has now gone fully remote, with both insider Jez Corden and Crash and Spyro focused YouTuber Canadian Guy Eh (as reported by TheGamer), assuring fans that all is well with these two beloved franchises.

Canadian Guy Eh recently made a new video detailing the changes at Toys For Bob with an anonymous inside source telling him that Microsoft is “dedicated to Toys For Bob and their IP”. Unfortunately, we don’t have much to go on beyond that. Fans did recently suspect that another Spyro entry might be in the works after Toys For Bob shared an image of devs gathered around a blurred out purple screen, but that’s not entirely conclusive evidence.

We should take all rumours with a pinch of salt but it would be downright silly for Microsoft to push Crash Bandicoot and Spyro The Dragon to one side. If it’s true that it does want to opt for a multi-platform approach, Spyro and Crash are already titans of that very model.
