It appears that the insanely popular #Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy” might arrive in non-PS4 platforms, specifically to the Xbox One. If the latest piece of evidence is any indication, it will be a first in the history of the franchise to launch the game outside of a Sony PlayStation console.

The release of #Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy has been a phenomenal success since its official launch on June 30. It immediately landed on top of the charts as the fastest and best-selling video game on PS4.

It toppled games like “Horizon Zero Dawn” that were released in February and “Tekken 7,” which was out in early June.

Because of its popularity among the gaming public, many of those who do not own a PS4 are wishing that the remastered collection will be made available on Xbox One and even on PC.

Leaked listing confirms Xbox One release date

Now, it looks like their wish will come true as the mounting evidence strongly suggests that this possibility will happen this December. A game listing that surfaced online courtesy of a British retail site, Base, showed a box art for the game's Xbox One case and apparently revealed a #Release Date set on December 8.

The preorder for the said version is also made available on the retailer’s page for a price of $38 USD (30 British pounds).

More clue surfaced online

In addition to the leaked Xbox One listing, an interesting video originally posted by one of the game’s artists showed some Xbox One button prompts in lieu of PS4 indicators. But shortly after the rumor spread on the internet, the artist deleted the said video as well as other images.

But fans were quick to capture the evidence. Take a look at the video below.

There are game pundits, however, who supposed that those prompts may refer to a PC port instead of Microsoft’s current-gen console.

PS4 timed exclusivity deal plausible

If the new leaks are anything to go by right now, it is plausible that the deal between Activision and Sony could be timed exclusive. At some point, the remastered game collection will eventually reach other platforms, especially Xbox One.

There is no word yet coming from either Activision or Vicarious Visions about porting the remastered Crash titles on Xbox One or PC. But looking at an untapped 10 million-plus users of Xbox One, Activision might not want to miss a huge opportunity to rack up more profits from millions of potential sales.

“Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy” is an HD compilation of three Crash games such as "Crash Bandicoot," "Cortex Strikes Back," and "Warped." It continues to dominate the charts as a top-selling video game of 2017 and also received positive reviews from game critics.
