Itching for some fresh Crash Bandicoot fun? Well, it looks like a new game could potentially be announced at The Game Awards on 8th December, 2022. Funko Pops fan and YouTuber Canadian Guy received a pizza box package from Activision today, confirming that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is coming to Steam on 18th October, 2022.
But that’s not all! A sticker on the side of the package notes: “Hungry for more? Try our new Wumpa Pizza for $12.08.” While it could just be a coincidence, the price seems oddly specific, and is stylised the same way as Americans would date 8th December, 2022, which is when The Game Awards will take place. Host Geoff Keighley has done skits with the ‘Coot in the past, so it all fits.
Strong rumours earlier in the summer suggested there is a new multiplayer-focused Crash Bandicoot in development called Wumpa League, although the details are generally hazy. With the Microsoft and Activision deal still yet to complete, it means the title should safely launch on PlayStation platforms, assuming it’s not several years away.
Over to you, then, Geoff!
