We’ve been hearing rumors about new Crash Bandicoot games for a long time, and a new promotional campaign from Activision seems to confirm it. A pizza box sent to influencers like Canadian YouTuber Guy Eh seemingly indicates an October 2020 release date for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time on Steam, and also hints at new reveals to come.
The pizza box in question is labeled with the store “Aku Aku’s Steam-In Pizza Shack,” which is a pretty obvious play on words, if we do say so ourselves. The PC version of Crash 4 is currently a Battle.net exclusive, along with several other Activision Blizzard games like the Call of Duty series.
However, it’s the message on the side that has Crash fans excited. He says “Hungry for more? Try our new Wumpa Pizza for $12.08!” This coincides with the date of the Game Awards, on December 8. This sets the stage for some kind of reveal, according to current plans, anyway.
Thanks for playing the game with me, how many did you get right? You know, it’s very convenient that we have more space on the wall to cover… 😉 pic.twitter.com/g4A5hkAHk3

Crash 4 developer Toys for Bob teased a new project in the above tweet back in August, prompting some to speculate whether or not this is a new Crash project. We’ve been hearing rumors about a multiplayer spin-off called “Wumpa League” for years through insiders like liam robertson and others, so this may be the long-awaited announcement. Either way, fans of rock chases and tiger rides have reason to be cautiously optimistic.
