Well Omar, he said he'll reveal the full roster, maybe Superbot wants to suprise us. Omar never de-comfirmed Crash he just said it takes two to tango.
Maybe Activision said yes.
Odds are Activision will not budge unless the game sells well enough to warrent Crash's appearance. With how much BS the community is giving SuperBot and Activision for it, they obviously know that Crash is a valuable IP for the game, so really all this whining is only making it less likely to get Crash. Plus, less purchases means a much lower probability Activision will even say yes.
Crash may be in still hopefully we'll get full insight from Paul Gale and get the whole roster.
If acti did not give them the rights I would love to know the reasion, if it's money then I blame sony for not forking it out and taking the risk.
It doesn't make much sense to blame a company that's billions of dollars in the hole for not forking out what was likely a sum of money only slightly lower than PSAS's entire budget for one character to be in this game.
