A Crash Bandicoot Mobile Game Could be Revealed Soon

The game's Twitter account is now seemingly active.

It seems like a new Crash Bandicoot mobile game is very close to launching. A new Twitter account for a game called 'Crash Bandicoot: On the Run' was set up earlier this year, but now it's begun actually tweeting.

You can find the official account for the game at @CrashOntheRun (as was first spotted earlier today by Eurogamer). The account itself was set up earlier this year in May, but has now put out a first tweet, showing a loading screen with a TNT dynamite box. It's probably worth noting that the Twitter account only follows two other accounts: King, and Crash Bandicoot.

The latter of those two accounts is obviously the main Crash Bandicoot Twitter account, used to promote the upcoming Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. As for the former account King, that's the UK-based developer of mobile games like Candy Crush.

This actually isn't the first news of a new Crash Bandicoot mobile game. Earlier this year in February, a Facebook advertisement went live a little earlier than scheduled, where users were actually allowed to pre-register for the game ahead of its launch.

Then in April, the mobile game was soft launched in multiple regions under the 'Crash Bandicoot Mobile Game' working title. This confirmed the game to be an free-to-play endless runner, where Crash and Coco teamed up Dr. Neo Cortex once again.

Now though, we're just waiting for an official announcement for King's mobile game. We now know the name of the game - Crash Bandicoot: On the Run - all that we're waiting for is a release date and platforms.

There's plenty more to look forward to in the future of Crash Bandicoot. Activision's next mainline Crash game is due out in October, called Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. Developed by the Spyro Reignited Trilogy developer Toys For Bob, Caty recently spoke to the developers about the nature of the numbered sequel.
