Seven large scale influencers have received Crash Bandicoot gadgets ahead of the incoming State of Play and The Game Awards 2019 events.
The last year’s The Game Awards was also preceded by Crash Bandicoot gadgets sent to influencers all over the world, and at that particular event, Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled was revealed.
Activision has applied this method to hype its announcements up before they share the first details about their games, and it seems there are strong chances that it may happen again with the newest State of Play and The Game Awards coming this week.
The teaser is not the first time we hear about an incoming Crash Bandicoot themed reveal. In November, a PlayStation commercial was spotted in the United Kingdom, with a new and suspicious design for Crash. In the same days, a Crash Bandicoot Worlds game at Toys for Bob and Vicarious Visions was also said to be in development, according to a 4chan rumor.
The rumor claimed that Worlds would be announced in December, and would offer a Super Mario 3D World-like gameplay with the titular protagonist traveling around the world in new locations and meeting new enemies.
A new State of Play episode has been revealed for December 10, 2019, while The Game Awards is coming two days later, on December 12, 2019. Host and producer Geoff Keighley have teased ten new game announcements.
