Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy PC and Nintendo Switch leak comes from an unlikely source


Here’s one we haven’t seen before: a high-profile video game leak coming from a quote by a licensing manager in the spring 2018 edition of a magazine called Licensing Source Book Europe (skip to page 97 for the offending article).

GB eye supplies licensed Crash merch, such as posters, lanyards and mugs.

The licensing manager in question works for a company called GB eye, a European supplier of licensed merchandise. GB eye works closely with Activision on its franchises, including Crash Bandicoot, which is why this one is interesting.

For some time now rumours have swirled that the previously PlayStation 4 exclusive, Crash Bandicoot The N.Sane Trilogy is coming to other platforms (online shops listed Crash for Xbox One in the summer of 2017). GB eye claims N.Sane Trilogy, which was a big hit for Activision, will be released on PC and Nintendo Switch later this year (our sources have heard the same). There’s no mention of an Xbox One version, but it’s not ruled out. Activision has yet to comment.

The leak goes on: GB eye says there will be a new Crash game in 2019, but there’s no word on what this game is or which platforms it’s for. Here’s the quote in full:

“The new game [N. Sane trilogy] was a huge success at retail with no marketing spend. Next year it will be going broader (Switch and PC) and there will be a new game in 2019. Activision have a five-year plan for this and GB eye is delighted to be fully on board for all products.”
