Are you one of the many fans that enjoyed the recent remasters by Activision, such as Spyro and/or Crash Bandicoot? Well, there’s some good news coming your way, as the publisher has commented on the possibility of seeing more Activision remasters!
In a Q&A session that Activision held at the end of their 2nd Quarter financial earnings call, representatives from the company were asked a variety of questions concerning the companies future. One of these questions happened to be about the possibility of seeing more remasters, given the recent success that Activision has had with both the Crash and Spyro franchises. Activision’s Publishing President Rob Kostich responded with the following.
The player response has been fantastic. When you look at Crash Insane Trilogy, that has sold through over 10 million copies, so they’re obviously having a big impact on our bottom line. I say whats really important is reaffirming the enduring nature of these franchises, when we look at our IP library we think there’s a lot of IP’s in there that fans are gonna want to experience again. To that one I say stay tuned for future announcements.
Given this statement, the possibility of seeing a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remaster seems highly likely, though Infinity Ward themselves seems to be re-doing the franchise in their own way.
