When Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled was revealed at the 2018 Game Awards, it was originally thought to be a PlayStation exclusive. Not long after that though, Activision confirmed the game would be released on all platforms – including the Switch – on 21st June 2019.
However, as of a few days ago, that might not actually be the case, as GoNintendo reported multiple retailers had removed pre-order options for the Switch version of CTR – with some even going as far as cancelling customer pre-orders. In the latest update, the official website for the game is now displaying a ‘Coming Soon’ message under the digital and standard Switch pre-order section. When selecting the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game, the original 21st June 2019 release date is still on display.
This has added further speculation that CTR on the Switch will not be released on this date. If this is the case, it wouldn’t be all that surprising considering that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was first released on the PlayStation 4 in 2017, and a year later, it arrived on the Switch and multiple other platforms.
