Through On The Run, Crash Bandicoot capitalised on the endless runner craze in 2017. The support for Crash Bandicoot: On The Run will expire in 2019, despite the fact that a series centred on the main character completing linear levels appears ideal for an endless runner.
Why is Crash Bandicoot being Discontinued
According to Crashy News, King, the creator of On The Run, has stated that game support will stop on February 16, 2023. The game won’t be playable beyond that time. “We have truly enjoyed creating this game, and it has meant so lot to us to bring your favourite Crash characters to life. We appreciate your time and hope you will join us for one of our many other games, according to King’s statement.
Today is the last day to make in-app purchases if you’re still playing On The Run before that feature of the game is permanently discontinued. Between now and the time the game closes, you can use any in-game money you purchase as well as any purple crystals you may already have. Naturally, those stones won’t be available after that date.
Although Crash Bandicoot appeared to be the ideal choice for an infinite runner, On The Run’s demise seems to have been caused by inadequate support. The mobile Crash Bandicoot game, which debuted in March 2021, got updates up until October of the previous year. Between now and then, there was complete silence on the update front, with no tweets from the Crash Bandicoot game’s official Twitter account after February of this year. Not to mention the “coming soon” notices that still appear on a lot of the app’s functions.
Crash Bandicoot: On The Run had a solid start to life, so it’s a little surprise King and Activision Blizzard didn’t follow up with upgrades. Eight million downloads were made on the first day, and within the first week, $700,000. Even Spyro was included in the game not long after it was released. For some reason, none of that was done, and in two months, On The Run will no longer exist.
