Activision Is Looking To Do More Remasters Of Its Classic Games

The last couple of years have seen a huge resurgence in the number of remakes, reworks and remasters hitting the shelves, and personally I’m totally here for it.

I’m definitely not the only one though, and the likes of the Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon and the newly-released Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fuelled remakes continue to fly off store shelves.

Thankfully, the success of the nostalgia-fuelled capers seem to be the start of what could be a pretty sizeable cash cow for Activision – and the company has definitely noticed.

Speaking to investors [via Destructoid], Activision’s president Rob Kostich explained that remasters are: “having a big impact on our bottom line” adding they’re also: “reaffirming the enduring nature of these franchises for us.”

“When you look at our IP library, we think there’s a lot of IP in there the fans are going to want to experience again,” Kostich said. “I’d say stay tuned for some future announcements, but just beyond pure remasters, there are also a lot of opportunities now to innovate and think about totally new content within these IPs.”

From the sounds of things, we’re pretty much guaranteed to be getting more remakes and remasters from Activision in the coming months. The only question now is: what Activision title would you like to see get remastered?

Maybe a little Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater will be on the cards? Only time will tell!

In other Crash Bandicoot news, Activision has come under fire for adding microtransactions into Crash Team Racing in the game’s latest update.

The move has left lots of fans disheartened, with one user tweeting: “So disappointed that #CrashTeamRacingNitroFueled has micro transactions.

“Nothing is sacred anymore. Make some noise and let @Activision know that we don’t want micro transactions or loot boxes in our Crash and Spyro games!”

Another raged: “Activision is a LIAR company, they promise crash team racing would be a micro transaction free, but what they did? imput [sic] micro transaction on the game, why LIE so much?they don’t care about customers, just money.”

Let’s hope any future remakes come – and stay – without microtransactions…
