Sony is "certainly aware" that fans would like to see the Crash Bandicoot series return, according to SCEE CEO Jim Ryan. He made the comment in an interview with OPM UK (via PSU), but unfortunately, didn't say more.
"Um...we're certainly aware of the considerable affection -- even reverence -- in which the mighty Crash is held. But nothing to update at this stage in that area," he explained (via VideoGamer.com).
Recently, Sony confirmed that the Crash Bandicoot rights remained with Activision. The Call of Duty company said in 2013 that it "continue[s] to explore ways in which we could bring the beloved series back to life," though nothing has been announced.
The latest title to bear the jorts-wearing Bandicoot's name was mobile game Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 in 2010.
