This is practically what happened with Evil Cole takein a "spot". The way I see it, is that most likely 4 more characters will be announced not including DLC. And if you remeber correctly, Omar Kendel did say, "We would make sure Crash Bandicoot would be on disk if we got him." I don't remeber where this was said, but you will have to take my word for it. Soory.
