Activision is "experimenting" with the 'Crash' series at the moment.

The technology firm's CEO Eric Hirshberg has suggested there could be a brand-new video game in the series in the coming years, although he's remained tight-lipped on specific ideas.

He shared: "We know there's a vocal fanbase that wanted that to come back. But you never know if that is emblematic of a larger audience or just this niche, nostalgia-based community.

"So far, we are seeing some real passion for it, so that could lead to other things."

Hirshberg explained that while the firm is eager to uncover the next big game series in the video game world, Activision is also conscious about satisfying its long-time fans.

Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, he explained: "Of course, we are always trying to find the next big thing. But our first priority is to make sure we are servicing the communities that we are already lucky enough to have."

Last year, meanwhile, 'Skylanders Imaginators' paid tribute to Crash Bandicoot by including him in the game.

The well-loved 90s video game character made an appearance in eight minutes of the game to kick-off Crash Bandicoot's 20th anniversary celebrations.

At the time, a statement read: "No 'Crash' game would be complete without the ability to jump on TNT Crates to blow them up or collect the Bazooka Crate to get a rocket launcher.

"From his edginess to his trademark wackiness, Crash is featured with a full move set and upgrade path based around his signature spin attack, as well as callbacks to his beloved past, including moves that incorporate exploding crates with 3-2-1 countdowns, wumpa fruit, a jetpack attack from high in the air and more."
