People were super keen for the idea of a Crash Bandicoot sequel, but a Crash endless runner probably isn’t what they had in mind.
Users online discovered a listing for a Crash Bandicoot spin-off from King, Activision’s mobile studio and the makers of Candy Crush. It was revealed from ads on Facebook, although the Facebook group isn’t live at the time of writing.
