The official Toys For Bob Twitter account shared a tweet yesterday on April 29, with the message: “Toys for Bob is proud to support the development of season 3 of Call of Duty #Warzone and hope that it will be a good idea.” There will be more to come to #LETSGO development team # Verdansk84 ”. Since then, several Toys For Bob employees have referred to a Warzone tweet announcing that they are no longer working at the studio. Given that the transition process involved mass layoffs, Nicholas Kole, character designer in Spyro Reignited and Crash Bandicoot 4, tweeted, “Everyone I contacted and worked with was let go. “
There are even reports of layoffs and assignments. But Toys For Bob does not seem to abandon Crash Bandicoot, an Activision spokesperson told GamesRadar, “Toys for Bob continues to lead the game in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time and is dedicated to providing a compelling gaming experience to the game. Fans, both current and future. ”It’s not clear what those future plans are destined to, but reporter Liam Robertson recently tweeted about the rumored multiplayer Crash game in between. Development at the studio, it is not yet known if the project is still in development.
With Call of Duty: Warzone hitting 100 million players over the past week and Warzone Season 3 just released, it makes sense that Activision wants to make sure the popular free-to-play game is well supported in the future. Currently, it doesn’t seem like the cost of other long-running franchises like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, but only time will tell.
