Your PC Will Crash (Bandicoot 4) On March 26

Today is the day that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time hits the Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, but Activision had a surprise in store for us. In the new trailer announcing Crash’s arrival on next-gen consoles (and the Switch), Crash also got a release date for PC.

March 26–that’s when Crash 4 will swing onto PC via Battle.net. This marks the second Crash Bandicoot game to hit PC since Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, the remakes of the first three Crash bandicoot games.

The N. Sane Trilogy released on Steam back in 2018, but there was no mention of Steam for Crash Bandicoot 4 this time around. It looks like it’s Battle.net or nothing for the most recent Crash game.

On the plus side, we’d expect any PC port to come with the same features you’ll find in the next-gen versions of Crash 4, those being 4K graphics, 60-plus frames per second, and optimized loading times. You’ll just need a Battle.net login to buy and play the game.

This PC and the next-gen release marks the 25th anniversary of Crash Bandicoot. Activision celebrated a little early last December by releasing The Art of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time just before the holidays. Full of interesting factoids and beautiful renderings, The Art of Crash Bandicoot 4 “is the perfect visual companion” to one of the best platformers ever made, according to our very own Eric Switzer.

In other Activision news, it turns out Call of Duty is just as huge as you think it is. According to recently released figures, the entire Call of Duty franchise has earned $27 billion since its start in 2003. And it’s not about to slow down even as zombies start to invade Call of Duty: Warzone.

Actually a collective of 6 hamsters piloting a human-shaped robot, Sean hails from Toronto, Canada. Passionate about gaming from a young age, those hamsters would probably have taken over the world by now if they didn’t vastly prefer playing and writing about video games instead.

The hamsters are so far into their long-con that they’ve managed to acquire a bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo and used that to convince the fine editors at TheGamer that they can write “gud werds,” when in reality they just have a very sophisticated spellchecker program installed in the robot’s central processing unit.
