Following the launch of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time earlier this year, fans have been theorising what comes next for gaming’s marsupial mascot.
Could Activision be considering a sequel for Crash Team Racing in a similar vein to Crash 4? A Crash Bash revival, maybe? A Crash/Spyro crossover could also be the cards too.
One Crash 4 completionist has potentially unearthed our very first glimpse at the next game in the Crashverse. Twitter user kimmotman posted a video, reportedly showcasing a hidden Easter egg that only unlocks upon hitting 106% completion.

Those who have played Crash Bandicoot 4 will know that there’s a CRT television in the first level, Rude Awakening. Hitting this chunky TV will change the on-screen image, cycling between the four games in the Crash Bandicoot series. A cool nostalgic nod for fans.
However, the video above shows another image that appears after the Crash 4 logo.
Naturally, this has prompted many to think this is our first look at what comes next for Crash Bandicoot. The logo doesn’t give much away – it’s a Wumpa fruit circled by two flares, one orange, one blue.
With this in mind, Crash fans have been picking apart a video recently uploaded to the official Crash Bandicoot Twitter account. It’s a fun twist on one of Uncharted 4’s best moments, with Crash and Coco playing a section from Naughty Dog’s masterful sequel.

A banner behind our two heroes reads “Wumpa League” which has us thinking that the next Crash game could be multiplayer focused with a competitive edge. With The Game Awards taking place next week, there’s a chance Crash could make a surprise appearance for sure.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time bagged a decent 7 out of 10 in our review – here’s what Steve had to say:
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time really is the definitive Crash game. Toys For Bob have taken all the series’ trademarks, refined them into a challenging and polished experience and given us tons of levels to play and secrets to hunt for. There’s new characters to play as and masks that shake up the gameplay when they appear, but Crash 4 is the same old Bandicoot who’s learnt a few new tricks.
