We're seeing confusion about #MTX in @CrashBandicoot 4 and want to be 💎 clear: There are NO MICROTRANSACTIONS in #Crash4. As a bonus, the Totally Tubular skins are included in all digital versions of the game.

Putting microtransactions in a platforming game would be a sad indicator of where the games industry is in 2020. However, it's glad to know that the developers working for Activision are at least claiming that the game doesn't have them. They might still find a way to sneak them in, but we can all at least hope that they don't cause any further problems.
