When Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled was revealed at the 2018 Game Awards, it was originally considered a time-limited PlayStation exclusive. Not long after Activision confirmed that the game would be released simultaneously on all platforms – including Switch – on June 21, 2019. At this time, there was a collective sigh of relief from Nintendo fans.
While everything seemed to be in order with the Switch version of the game, it seems that it may not be the case. A few days ago, GoNintendo reported that several retailers had removed pre-order options for the Switch version of CTR ̵
1; with some even going as far as interrupting customer pre-orders. In the latest update, the official website of the game now displays a message “Coming Soon” under the Digital and Standard Switch pre-order section. When you select PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game, the original date of issue for June 21, 2019 is still on display.
This powered speculation that the CTR on the power switch will not be released on this date. If so, that would not be surprising considering previous events. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was a time-limited exclusive and released only on PlayStation 4 in 2017. A year later, Switch came across and several other platforms. Regarding Spyro Reignited Trilogy after a series of rumors, it is yet to cross its way to Nintendo’s hybrid platform. Again, the latest last date provided by Activision for CTR on Switch focused on the release of other platforms.
