I'd honestly be surprised if he didn't make it in! But that's just my opinion
Crash won't always be owned by Activision, he can be sold and sold again like he was several times over the years. Hell, Superbot could even own it if they had the money and really wanted to ( I doubt they will though ).
Contrary to popular belief, Activision IS actually still making money off of Crash. They get royalties for every PSOne classic that people buy, and they have iOS games that Some people buy.
They wouldn't sell Crash for that cheap.
EDIT: That said, a contract agreement for Crash to get in the game is certainly not out of the question, just making a point about what it would take to "buy" Crash.
We just don't know do we. We can only dream that Sony gets it again and has Naughty Dog develope it.. Am I the only one that wants another Crash Bash? That's Eurocom, but still.
anyway if microsoft will buy activison it doesnt change. if they bought crash for this game. they already done i think. 2 month left( laast month game is completed and just sale things promitions last trailers bla bla)
GOD i hope crash/spro/cloud DON'T MAKE IT PLEASE I WILL PREY FOR THAT
I know it's your opinion, but, I find it to be pretty dumb.
By the way, just call me Count for short.
