Crash Bandicoot 4 runs onto PS5, Xbox Series X, and Switch in March

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is busting out of his old-gen confines and running wild on next-gen consoles and Switch in just a few weeks.


Crash Bandicoot fans rejoiced in October when the former PlayStation mascot got his first all-new game in over a decade. To this point, only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners have gotten to enjoy Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, but that's about to change in a matter of weeks. On Tuesday, Activision announced that Crash's latest adventure would come to next-gen consoles, as well as Nintendo Switch, in March. PC owners, don't feel too left out. Crash 4 will come to PC later this year.

The news of Crash 4 on new platforms comes a little over six months after Activision first stated that the idea was under consideration. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X version of Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time will come with the various features one would expect out of next-gen consoles. That means the game will feature 4K resolution, 60 FPS, and faster loading times. Those who already own Crash 4 on the old generation consoles will be able to upgrade their current version to the new hotness within the same console family at no extra charge. PS5 owners, specifically, will receive support for the DualSense controller's adaptive triggers, as well as the console's Activity Card feature. Switch owners shouldn't expect any upgrades from the old-gen versions of Crash 4. However, they own a Switch, so that means they'll be able to take Crash on the go in Handheld Mode.

As for the PC version of Crash 4, that's not coming until later this year. However, it should be noted that the game will not come to Steam or the Epic Games Store. No, it'll be coming to, making it the first non-Call of Duty Activision title to grace Blizzard's service. More details on Crash's PC version, as well as his debut on, are expected over the months ahead. Activision is also promising more Crash news, in general, later in 2021 as the furry mascot celebrates his 25th birthday.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time will release on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S on March 12 for $59.99 USD, though to reiterate, if you own it on PS4 and Xbox One already, you will pay nothing to upgrade. Crash 4 will come to Nintendo Switch on that same day, but will sell for $39.99 USD. Whenever Crash 4 releases on PC, that version will also sell for $39.99 USD.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      This actually sounds great. I bought this on Xbox One last year and played through a bit of it, but kind of put it down and went elsewhere. I was meaning to go back to it, but the upgrades might be awesome. I can only hope they decided to add HDR this time around though. The game itself was pretty fun.
