Contrary to some early reports hitting the web, Toys for Bob, the developers behind the upcoming Crash game, have come out to confirmed that there will be no Crash Bandicoot 4 microtransactions.

Taking to Twitter to clear the air, Toys for Bob has issued this statement concerning Crash Bandicoot 4 microtransactions along with the pre-order bonuses that many are taking issues with.


Whether this statement remains to be true once the game has been on the market for some time is not yet known. If Crash fans remember, Activision had a similar approach with Crash Team Racing, only for the studio and publishers to later add them in. Hopefully, this will be the last we ever hear on Crash Bandicoot 4 microtransaction. Of course, DLC is most likely on the table, though the game is pretty packed with stages as it has been said to feature over 100 plus levels.

About Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time:

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Timeis not a remaster, but the first original entry in the Crash franchise in more than 10 years. To celebrate, Toys for Bob is excited to introduce a fresh art style for Crash to fans that maintains the zany spirit of the franchise while also breathing new personality and charm into it. Rewinding time back to the end of Crash Bandicoot: Warped, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Timepicks up after Neo Cortex, Dr. N. Tropy and Uka Uka were last stranded on a distant planet. After decades of fruitless attempts, the trio finally make their escape, ripping an Evil-Scientist-sized hole in the fabric of space-time in the process. Now all that stands between them and total dominion over the multiverse are two fuzzy marsupials from N. Sanity Island.

Crash bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be launching this October on the PlayStation4 and Xbox One. The Xbox One version will support Smart Delivery, meaning if you buy the Xbox One version you are automatically getting the upgraded Xbox Series X version in the same copy.
