Developer Beenox is currently busy with Crash Bandicoot 4’s N. Verted modes.
With a Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time on the horizon, courtesy of Toys for Bob, it’s easy to forget about Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Released in June 2019, the kart-racing remaster actually had substantial updates in the form of new racers, karts, tracks and more. The last major Grand Prix was in March 2020 and since then, there have been no updates.
Developer Beenox finally confirmed on Twitter on that the March update was its last major content drop with no additional content currently planned. “Part of the reason is that we’re hard at work on some other incredible projects, including making the N. Verted modes in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time (which will blow you away.” The studio is also working on “some other things we can’t quite mention yet.”
Thankfully, the current-gen modes and features for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, from the leaderboards and Pit Stop to the online multiplayer, will continue to function. Overall, it’s not a bad end for the remaster considering all of the additional content it received. That’s even if PC players didn’t get a port (though never say never).
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is currently planned to release on October 2nd for PS4 and Xbox. Recently, Toys for Bob unveiled new Flashback Levels, which see Crash and Coco braving some very tough challenges in Neo Cortex’s lab. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
