Crash Bandicoot’s recent return to the gaming world with the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy seems to have only been the beginning of his resurgence. According to a recent tease, there’s a chance Crash’s racing adventure will also be making a comeback.
Today, PlayStation Access’ Hollie Bennett shared a picture on Twitter of a pair of orange fuzzy dice and a note from “anonymous” that said “sliding into the Game Awards on 6/12.” As fans can see, the Crash-orange dice are the kind that typically hang from a car’s rearview mirror, which is a strong indication that Crash Team Racing is what’s being teased.
So….uh….these just arrived at my house.
Any ideas? 😂🤔 pic.twitter.com/x0MRYihWvg

While Activision hasn’t confirmed it sent the cryptic message, it seems highly likely that an announcement for a remaster of Crash Team Racing is coming. According to Eurogamer, the publisher will officially reveal the project later this week, presumably at the Game Awards on Thursday.
This type of publicity is in Activision’s wheelhouse, too. Before the reveal of Spyro Reignited Trilogy, several news outlets and high-profile YouTubers received purple eggs with an accompanying teaser note, similar to Bennett’s fuzzy dice.
As for the game in question, Crash Team Racing was a PlayStation exclusive that launched in 1999 as one of two spinoffs of Naughty Dog’s platforming series. A year later, the multiplayer party-style game Crash Bash also arrived on the same platform.
Players should undoubtedly learn more about the remaster during Thursday’s ceremony, which is set to take place at 6 p.m. PT.
