A CTR: Crash Team Racing Remaster has been teased, as reported on Eurogamer.
Following on from the enormous success of the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy remasters it looks like publisher Activision will possibly revisit the cult kart racer CTR next. Fans have been hoping for this since the Crash Bandicoot remaster so it seems like a move that would make sense.
Earlier this week dubious sounding rumours began floating around regarding an announcement at the Game Awards, due to be held this week (at 2:30pm NZT on Friday the 7th December).
But then PlayStation Access presenter Hollie Bennett teased the following photo on Twitter of a pair of Crash coloured furry dice, the kind you might hang on a car's rearview mirror.
"Sliding into the Game Awards on 6/12," an accompanying message reads.
This tease is understood to be the real deal, and Activision will make its CTR remaster official later this week.
Originally released for the PlayStation 1 in 1999, CTR: Crash Team Racing was developed by Naughty Dog, which would later find greater fame with Uncharted and The Last of Us. As with Crash Bandicoot, CTR was a PlayStation exclusive. Crash's trilogy remaster launched on PlayStation 4 first before other platforms, so it'll be interesting to see if CTR remastered follows the same release pattern.
CTR: Crash Team Racing was always one of my favourite local multiplayer experiences on the PlayStation 1 so I'm very excited to have a great kart racer coming to the PS4.
