Available from the end of March, Crash Bandicoot: On The Run has already accumulated more than 27 million downloads worldwide according to Sensor tower. It must be said that the marsupial was especially expected on mobile, especially after a very successful Crash Bandicoot 4. Remember that the game is available for free on iOS and Android from March 25.
Crash Bandicoot has found its audience on mobile
The game thus occupied the first place of downloads in the United States, but it also hits very hard in Brazil and Mexico. The game ranked second in the ranking of the most downloaded games in the world during the month of March.
“It was a very solid release for Crash Bandicoot: On The Run, which benefits from the franchise’s resurgence, with a laid-back runner perfectly suited to the franchise and mobile audience while staying true to its roots.“Says Craig Chapple of Sensor tower.
So excellent news for Activision, with a particularly lucrative second mobile game, after a certain Call of Duty Mobile, obviously. The publisher has never hidden it, he intends to transpose his flagship franchises to mobile, and after Crash Bandicoot and Call of Duty, it is Diablo that should soon reach our smartphones.
Obviously, in a good free game, Crash Bandicoot: On the Run will quickly show its talent in terms of … in-app purchases. Indeed, the game was developed in collaboration with King (Candy Crush’s father), and the latter will do everything possible to maximize the new mobile adventures of this good old marsupial born in the mid-90s, on a certain PlayStation. ..
