Naughty Dog Asked Activision To Include Crash Bandicoot In Fan Art Contest; Got Denied

By on

To celebrate Naughty Dog?s 30th anniversary, they will be holding a fan art design contest. Fans were prompted to make their own artwork related to Jak and Daxter, The Last of Us and?Uncharted to bag some definitely nifty prizes.

Now, you have certainly noticed that a relevant name has been missing in the list, and yes, that?s Crash Bandicoot, which by the way made Naughty Dog popular ?to begin with.
In the comments on the PlayStation Blog, some fans asked whether the infamous Crash could be included. Unfortunately, Eric Moncelli?s (Community Strategist) answer was negative.

?Sorry, no Crash? ūüôĀ ?

Some other fans asked if they could ask Activision, who owns the right for the IP to include Crash, and again, Monacelli?s reply was negative, unfortunately.

?We asked. It?s not something we can offer for this.?

To the fans living in Europe who wants to join the contest, they can enter but they will not be eligible for prizes, Monacelli added.

Interestingly, the unfortunate denial of Crash Bandicoot comes as Andrew House (Sony Computer Entertainment CEO) told The Telegraph the he would not definitely close the door on a possible return of the franchise.

Now, let?s get back to the contest. Below are the prizes that will be given to winning contestants.
