Keep the love coming. During an earnings call yesterday, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg assured investors that the publisher is thinking about reviving similarly classic IP.
"We knew that there was a passionate audience out there for Crash. Full disclosure myself among them," Hirshberg said. "But we had no idea – it’s hard to tell whether that’s a vocal minority or whether that's a real mass audience until you put something out there.
"Crash has surpassed all of our expectations by a pretty wide margin."
As luck would have it, Activision owns another IP that people want to see remastered for the HD age. Hint: He's purple, scaly, breathes fire, and his name rhymes with "rye toe."
Spyro the dragon (oh no, I gave it away) is currently the spokes-reptile for Activision's Skylanders toys-to-life series (which Crash also cameos in), but Skylanders' popularity has cooled off in recent years. It's looking more and more likely Spyro will come home to HD platforming glory before long.
