Recent news that Toys for Bob has been moved to support Call of Duty: Warzone development has panicked Crash and Spyro fans.
Both Crash Bandicoot and Spyro The Dragon are back in the spotlight of winning in the last few years. Both the 2017 Crash Bandicoot N. Saint Trilogy and the 2018 Spiro Reignition Trilogy sold very well, paving the way for further releases of the iconic duo.
However, Toys for Bob, the developer of both Reignited Trilogy and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, has been reassigned to assist Call of Duty: Warzone. The news has made many fans uncertain about the fate of their favorite mascot platformer.

The situation regarding Toys for Bob’s turnaround was confusing, to say the least. According to the first report, the studio experienced a furlough in parallel with the restructuring, but these reports were later inconsistent by Activision itself. The future of the two series is certainly questionable, as Toys for Bob was an integral part of modern Crash and Spyro releases.
Such a dramatic change for developers was a drug that fans had a hard time swallowing. With this change, all major studios under the Activision banner now support Call of Duty. Former character artist Nicholas Kolestated said that despite the layoff being rejected by Activision, he interfaced and everyone with whom he worked was parted. Cole also confirmed that the studio is currently working only on Call of Duty and employees are being crushed.

Activision Studios, which supports different games within a publisher, doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t work on multiple projects. However, Cole’s statement reduces the likelihood that Toys for Bob will be involved in a crash or spiro outside of Crash 4’s confirmed support.
This raises the question of which studios are left to work on the 90’s platform duo. Vicarious Visions, the developer of N. Sane Trilogy, was absorbed by Blizzard Entertainment and removed from the list. The only viable option is Benox, the developer of Crash Team Racing Nitro Fuel, which helped Crash 4. Despite working on Call of Duty, other projects have been identified as underway.

The truth is that if Beenox isn’t currently working on a new Spyro or Crash project, Activision is likely to be in the franchise for now. But there is still hope. Activision recently released Crash Bandicoot: Ported Crash 4 to PC on Runfor mobile devices. In addition to this, various Activision partners are currently teasing new Spyro products. This is usually the time to coincide with the new announcement.
Both franchises are very popular today and are selling very well. The profitability of the duo is not an issue. Fans are worried because the two mascots aren’t as profitable as Call of Duty. It’s by no means a fair comparison, as some other video games on the planet can boast of Call of Duty’s profitability. But that’s exactly what Activision is doing, a kind of comparison that fans fear.

Spyro’s recent product bullying and related leaks are the fans’ last and best hope. If a new title is announced by Beenox this year, the future of the two franchises could be safe for now. 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of Crash Bandicoot, and Activision has promised a celebration. It seems unlikely that you would send a duo to the gallows on the crash milestone birthday, and it certainly would be very tasty.
Anyway, Toys For Bob’s new road is a very disappointing one. The studio has a reputation for quality work on attractive platformers, and Call of Dutyis rarely makes the most of the unique talents of such developers. Many staff members who are still in the company and are no longer hired seem to be as disappointed as their fans.
