Crash Bandicoot 4 is almost certainly coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X


It's just a matter of time

Crash Bandicoot 4 is ripping a hole in the fabric of time and launching on next-gen consoles. Probably. Also, that's vastly overselling the situation.

The long-awaited Crash Bandicoot 4 released last Friday on PS4 and Xbox One. Given the proximity to PS5 and Xbox Series X launches, it left some wondering why Activision didn't just wait and get next-gen versions out too. That's almost assuredly going to happen at some point.

There's a new ESRB rating for Crash 4 on Xbox Series X. It's perfectly legitimate -- all you have to do is search for the game or click the "recently rated games" tab. There's no listing for PS5 but you'd have to reasonably assume it's coming to Sony's console too.

Seeing as Activision hasn't yet confirmed the next-gen ports -- probably because the publisher is focused on getting current-gen launched before promoting another version -- we don't know what sort of enhancements Crash 4 will have on PS5 and Xbox Series X. There's a good chance it'll feature settings that prioritize performance or resolution.

That isn't even the extent of the ports that we're expecting to see. There's still a lingering rumor that Crash 4 is set to receive a Switch version. It all seems perfectly viable to be honest.

You can't be faulted for waiting, but you should check out Crash Bandicoot 4 at some point. It's evidently quite excellent, a true return to form for a series that has gone (mostly) dormant for far too long. Not all mascot platformers age this gracefully.
