Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time Leaked Through Taiwanese Ratings Board

With a reveal set for June 22.

Yesterday, you might have seen some strange, Crash Bandicoot-themed jigsaw puzzles going around online, that appear to have been sent out to outlets around the world. In the early hours of this morning though, the next Crash Bandicoot game appears to have leaked.

The official title of the next game is Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. As first spotted and reported on by Gematsu, the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee approved a rating for the unannounced game early today on June 19, depicting both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

Note this the upcoming Crash Bandicoot game is developed by Toys For Bob. You might recall this developer being behind 2018's impressive Spyro Reignited Trilogy, which brought the first three games of the Spyro series into one remastered package. Just below, you can read the official product description from the ratings board:

Crash is relaxing and exploring his island in his time, 1998, when he finds a mysterious mask hidden away in a cave, Lani-Loli. The mask is one of the Quantum Masks and apparently knows Aku-Aku, Crash’s mask friend! With the Quantum Masks returning and a Quantum Rift appearing near our heroes, they decide to bravely head through to different times and dimensions to stop whoever is responsible.

Shortly after Crash Bandicoot 4 was first leaked, industry insider and analyst Daniel Ahmad took to Twitter to reveal that the game is slated for an official reveal on June 22, at the Summer Games Fest. Additionally, there isn't a Nintendo Switch version of the new Crash Bandicoot game.

Right now, there's been no official word from Activision on the next Crash game. We'll have to wait and see, maybe until next week, for more on the unannounced game.
