Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time Sold Over 5 Million Copies

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, the first mainline Crash game in 12 years at that point, was a massive success for developer Toys for Bob and publisher Activision.

According to design director Toby Schadt, the game sold over 5 million copies since its initial release in 2020. He also called the game a “well-received sequel” which, based on the numbers he says, seems to be the case.

The game was first available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One before releasing on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S in 2021. The game has “generally favorable” reviews from both critics and players alike on all platforms on Metacritic.

Recently, Toys for Bob announced it was becoming an independent studio after Microsoft closed its acquisition of Activision Blizzard. Not long after, Toys for Bob and Microsoft announced it had reached an agreement for the studio to make its new game for Xbox.
