Naughty Dog Has Moved Past Crash Bandicoot
Employees at Naughty Dog have effectively ruled out the return of one of their most popular videos game Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter. Long time lead animator and writer for Naughty Dog, Josh Scherr, says the studio has become 'more grounded and grown up' since their cartoony developing days.
"No, I don't, because we've got an amazing team of people making some really expressive performances with our current stable of realistic characters. I mean, animating the stylised stuff is a lot of fun, but the stories that we're trying to tell right now are a little bit more grounded and a little bit more grown up than they were back in the Jak and Daxter days."
Josh went on to explain that it's a combination of forces that have lead them to this decision. Not only is the studio more mature, but they are also trying to cater to what is dictated by the market's wants. Realism, or at least games grounded in realism, seem to be doing very well with Naughty Dog. Titles like Uncharted and The Last of Us, both very believable titles with incredibly human characters are now the flagships of this long standing studio.
I'll admit, I'm a bit disappointed. I would absolutely love a remake of Crash or J&D, I played those games to death as a kid. That being said, I understand their thinking and they are hitting it out of the park with games like the Uncharted series and The Last of Us.

They need to make another CTR at least, that game was incredible. Like the underground Mario Kart

@TeamWaffles I am sad as well. @RobynSecor I had no idea anyone else knew that game, it was BETTER than Mario Kart in my opinion!

How about they drop the Uncharted series, which in my opinion is poorly written/scripted, and has one of the most annoying main characters ever, (not trying to upset anyone, just saying how I feel, it's fine if you disagree :)) bringing back Crash could be one of the smartest moves for Naughty Dog, especially if they took a leaf out of Tomb Raiders book and gave it a bit of a facelift, I would love that so much, Crash Bandicoot, his sister Coco, Neo Cortex... And all the rest, these were the Characters that sparked my imagination, and my love of gaming, so it goes without saying that I really want a Crash Bandicoot comeback... If not somebody else better buy the rights ands how Naughty Dog what a mistake they are making!!!
