Rumor: Dr. Neo Cortex Voice Actor May Have Teased Crash Bandicoot’s Revival On PS4

by Damian Seeto

Rumors have been running rampant over the last couple of months that Crash Bandicoot will be returning to the PS4. The voice actor for the franchise’s villain may have teased that the character is coming back.

As noted by a user on NeoGAF, Neo Cortex’s voice actor Lex Lang posted on Facebook: “Wow! What a throwback Thursday! This week I have been asked to resurrect three different characters that I voiced from 3 different games gone by. A doctor, a devil and a droid/AI. Unfortunately that’s all I’m allowed to disclose at this time. Stay tuned for more details!! Very excited about those!!

Looking at Lex Lang’s part work, Neo Cortex is the only doctor that he has voiced in the past in a video game. We’re not sure what the devil and droid/AI characters will be, but he has voiced in the older Mass Effect games as well as some older Star Wars titles.

People have been longing for a return of Crash Bandicoot as it’s been a long time since the last game came out starring the popular character. The last word we’ve heard is that Activision still owns the IP, but Sony have been interested in buying him back for the PS4.

Ratchet and Clank PS4 proved to be popular and became the fastest selling one of the franchise to date. This goes to show us that platform games can still succeed so now is the best time to bring Crash Bandicoot back.
