We know, it’s incredible but it’s possible: Toys for Bob (Spyro, Crash Bandicoot), would have obtained the immense privilege of not only dealing with Call of Duty.
It’s a small event in the Activision sphere. Indeed, the Toys for Bob studio, which in April became a Warzone support studio, could deal with a license unrelated to the war franchise.
Yet, as we announced at the time, all Activision studios are now dedicated to Call of Duty, TfB being the last “resistant” to date. The old historic Pandemonium team therefore seemed dismantled.
Except this weekend, VGC noticed in the list of open jobs that a Senior Concept Artist was wanted for a game. Not a Call of Duty, but just “a project”. As our colleagues note, this is the first time that the job offer does not speak specifically of the franchise for which the studio is supposed to work exclusively.
Toys for Bob being better known in recent years for Spyro and Crash Bandicoot remakes, should we expect a return on these franchises? Activision had confirmed in May that its studio would stay close to the latest Crash Bandicoot 4.
