Cult kart racer CTR: Crash Team Racing looks like it’s making a comeback. Following the enormous success of the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy remaster, it looks like publisher Activision will revisit kart racing spin-off CTR next.
While loose rumors regarding this game’s existence have existed for some time, a recent tweet from PlayStation Access channel manager Hollie Bennett has people convinced that this game will soon be confirmed. Why? Well, it seems that Bennett received a mysterious pair of fuzzy orange dice similar to the ones you might hang in a car. Included with the dice was an anonymous note that reads “Sliding into the Game Awards on 6/12 (December 6).”
That’s certainly nice and all, but we still have quite a few questions about this rumored project. First off, will this be a remake or a remaster? The recently released remasters of the original Crash Bandicoot games tends to suggest that CTR will receive the full remake treatment, but we suppose you can never rule out the possibility of a remaster, at least until this project is confirmed. While we’re on the subject, we actually don’t have any confirmation that this will be a remake/remaster and not a new game in the Crash universe.
Originally released for the PlayStation 1 in 1999, CTR Crash Team Racing was developed by Naughty Dog, which would later find greater fame with Uncharted and The Last of Us. As with Crash Bandicoot, CTR was a PlayStation exclusive. Crash’s trilogy remaster launched on PlayStation 4 first before other platforms, so it’ll be interesting to see if CTR HD follows the same pattern. Regardless, it makes sense why PlayStation Access has been sent a tease for it now.
