New rumors out of PAX East suggested Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy wouldn't be exclusive to the PS4 ecosystem. We’re still waiting for an official confirmation (or denial) from one of the companies involved in reviving Crash. But some fans are already noticing discrepancies between the alleged claims and older statements about the trilogy. And one site may have proof that this just the latest hoax to hit the video games news cycle.

An unidentified representative from the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy PAX East booth appeared to claim the game is headed to PC at some point on or after the game’s June 30 debut. The same rep can also be heard suggesting N. Sane Trilogy will support 4K displays and achieve the treasured 60fps frame rate. And footage of the incident was more than enough to convince some onlookers.

Unfortunately, it looks like this appears to be a ruse. CulturedVultures dug up a longer version of the recording that suggests the 4K/60fps comments were actually being made about another game, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition , being shown off camera. We already know Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be capped at 30fps on the standard PS4, via DigitalFoundry, which is why some fans are leery of the new claims. That said, it’s worth pointing out that, just a few weeks ago, PlayStation Ireland said the remastered trilogy would hit PS4 and PS4 Pro “ first,” instead of being exclusive to Sony’s ecosystem. It’s possible Sony just has plans for a PS3 port, for those who’ve yet to upgrade, but a PC port would certainly open the franchise up to a much larger audience.

We have reached out to Activision, seeking clarification on the matter, and will update the post if/when we hear back from the publisher. For a closer look at Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, take a few minutes to watch the most recent trailer from Activision and Sony. Then stop by the comments section and let us know if you’d be interested in a PC port of the N. Sane Trilogy.

The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is in development for PlayStation 4 and (maybe) PC. The game is scheduled to hit PS4 on June 30.
