Quick, everyone brush off your best Naughty Dog “3 games then a carting spin-off” jokes, it’s time for some Crash Team Racing news! Not good news, though, so don’t get your hopes up. This news relates to the cancelled project that was supposed to be released in 2010. Some screens have emerged and are swiftly being removed, presumably at Activision’s request.
The game was supposedly being made by former staff members of Naughty Dog and Insomniac Games in a new studio called High Impact Games. That studio is responsible for the PS2 port of Secret Agent Clank, along with several iOS games and, interestingly, Dreamworks Superstar Kartz. It was cancelled by Activision but presumably just rolled up and reskinned into the largely ignored Dreamworks licence that Activision didn’t seem to market much anyway. Good call, business dudes!
