Freedom. The authors of Crash Bandicoot 4 and Skylanders left Activision

Last evening the industry was shocked by unexpected and very pleasant news. First, Embracer Group decided to sell (rather than cut) Saber Interactive. And then the unheard of happened: the Toys for Bob studio managed to spin off from Activision.


Known for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, the Skylanders series, as well as the remasters of the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon trilogies, the team gained independence. She proudly announced this on her website, while emphasizing that she plans to “take her future games to the next level” and “go back to her roots.” However, despite the transition to the indie segment, the company is considering the possibility of partnership with Microsoft.

There is, however, an unpleasant detail: castling led to the cessation of support for the relatively fresh Crash Team Rumble. On March 4, the last patch will be released, after which all additional content released for the multiplayer title (battle passes and the like) will be made free, and microtransactions will be disabled.

In a separate line, Toys for Bob noted that Activision fully supported the transformation. Let us remember that the studio belonged to the publisher of Call of Duty since 2005.
