Earlier this week there were rumors that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will have microtransactions. This started thanks to a new policy from Microsoft that will inform players of titles that offer any kind of in-app purchase.
Shortly after, Toys for Bob, the developer of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, commented on the situation, clarifying that the title will not have microtransactions.
This quick and rather direct statement is very reassuring. Not only does it confirm the title won’t launch with them, it shows they’re also not on the horizon or even considered.
If you missed the reveal, here is the official overview:
It’s About Time – for a brand-wumping new Crash Bandicoot™ game! Crash fourward into a time shattered adventure with your favorite marsupials.
Neo Cortex and N. Tropy are back at it again and launching an all-out assault on not just this universe, but the entire multiverse! Crash and Coco are here to save the day by reuniting the four quantum masks and bending the rules of reality.
