Κατά τη διάρκεια συνάντησης της Actisivion με επενδυτές ο CEO Eric Hirshberg άφησε ανοικτό το ενδεχόμενο και για άλλα remasters μετά τη μεγάλη επιτυχία του Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, αλλά και του Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Τόνισε ότι γνωρίζανε ότι υπήρχε ζήτηση για το Crash, αλλά αυτή ξεπέρασε κάθε προσδοκία. Η Activision ακούει το community και προσφέρει υλικό που θέλουν, ενώ υπάρχουν και άλλες IP που σκέφτονται για remaster. Προς το παρόν δεν υπάρχουν ανακοινώσεις, αλλά ένα Spyro Trilogy Remaster φαντάζει αρκετά πιθανό…

“We knew that there was a passionate audience out there for Crash–full disclosure, myself among them–but we had no idea… it’s hard to tell if that’s a vocal minority or that’s a real mass audience until you put something out there. Crash has surpassed all of our expectations by a pretty wide margin.”

“I think this is just another example of us really listening to our communities and our fans and offering them great content where they want to engage, which is one of our core strategies, We think we have other great IP in our portfolio that we’re considering, of course, but this isn’t new behavior for us. We’ve already shown the power that is Modern Warfare Remastered [and] Zombies Chronicles, and Crash Bandicoot is obviously another great example.

“So this is a strategy that clearly has our attention, and while there are no new announcements today, I think you can be confident there will be more activity like this in the future with more great IP. The other opportunity beyond remasters is to look at some of our classic IP and ask whether or not it can be reborn on a new platform, like what we’re doing with Skylanders on mobile. Our IP library is an asset that, when done right, can be very powerful.”
