Updated December 6, 2018: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will be available on June 21, 2019 on Xbox One and other platforms.
Today, we received a rather interesting package from what we believe to be Activision, since they asked us for our mailing address a few days ago. It contained a note that said to watch The Game Awards 2018 on Thursday and a pair of giant dice that are bigger than our heads. The package was sent by someone named "N.O." which probably stands for Nitros Oxide. He is an alien from the planet Gasmoxia who serves as the main antagonist of Crash Team Racing. The first thought that cross our minds was that Activision is teasing a new Crash Bandicoot kart racing game. Then, it hit us, that it might be CRT: Crash Team Racing remaster.
We aren't the only ones who received the package, and other outlets like Game Rant also think this is a tease for CRT: Crash Team Racing.

Considering the fact that it's being sent out to all outlets, even though that cover Xbox One and PC, could mean that it won't be a timed PlayStation 4 exclusive like Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. We should know more on Thursday. It might be a completely different game we're unaware of.
Activision has remastered two major games and has promised even more in the pipeline. Crash Team Racing would fit right in. The game was originally developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony. According to description, the game's story focuses on the efforts of a ragtag team of characters in the Crash Bandicoot universe, who must race against the egomaniacal Nitros Oxide to save their planet from destruction.
