Despite the rumors that Crash Bandicoot would be returning soon on the PlayStation 4, it would appear that previous publisher Activision is trying to distance itself from the franchise. The official Crash Bandicoot website, which is owned and maintained by Activision, has been taken down. In addition, all mentions of the series have been removed from Activision's own website.
To make matters even stranger, the company's support pages no longer include support for Crash: Mind Over Mutant, or the Crash Bandicoot iOS kart racing game. At this point, it seems likely that Activision no longer plans to publish future installments in the series. The company had previously taken over publishing duties from Sierra Entertainment in 2008.
The discovery was made by Reddit's /r/crashbandicoot community.
No reason was given for this turn of events.
