More Activision Remasters Confirmed For Later This Year
Taking a stroll down memory lane has become much more manageable in this day and age with the prevalence of remakes and remasters making their way to modern platforms. Activision has put out two of the most beloved iterations of this idea with the stellar Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, bringing the classic PS1 platformers back to prominence after years of relative dormancy. With these two successes in the bag, it appears fans can expect even more Activision remasters as we venture further into the year 2020.
As revealed during a recent investor call (via Prima Games), Activision CEO Bobby Kotick spoke on several of the company’s upcoming goings-ons, including a continued focus on remasters and remakes for the foreseeable future. In addition to these new 2020 projects, Kotick also teased when these incoming announcements could take place, saying: “Be sure to stay tuned for some future announcements, but beyond pure remasters there are a lot of opportunities now to innovate and think about totally new content within theses IPs.”
While there hasn’t been a new remake or remaster released as of late, Activision has shown lasting support for the idea with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, with both titles receiving a constant stream of updates since first being released. The advent of even more remasters may prove to be exciting considering the vast library of dormant franchises under the company’s umbrella. Several old-school titles have already been primed as remaster-ready such as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, a series which became the subject of rumors only a few weeks ago.
