It’s been a busy time for Activision's skin designers and marketing team in recent weeks, as they've combatted the Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff drama and are preparing a crossover with The Boys coming very soon.

But its most recent in-house crossover appears to be proving to be more than a handful. Shortly after releasing its second Crash Bandicoot crossover into Call of Duty, the publisher is meandering difficult waters once again, as it has now pulled the bundle from its store.

The Call of Duty bundle was actually priced at 2400 CoD Points, which comes in around the $25 mark, only a mere $10 cheaper than the entire Crash Team Rumble game to which it was honouring.

With this mistake, Call of Duty has now taken action and removed the bundle from its stores as it revalues the eight-part package.

Taking to Twitter, the newly-formed CoDUpdates account confirmed, "The Tracer Pack: Crash Bandicoot Bundle is temporarily unavailable in the Store while we correct the price." For once, it seems the gaming giant is actually falling on our side. 

Call of Duty is refunding Crash Bandicoot bundle owners

 

If you've already copped the Crash Bandicoot bundle, you'll be entitled to a bit of compensation, and in a remarkably un-Activision-like approach, it is now refunding the disparity back to players' accounts.

The new CoDUpdates Twitter account confirmed that players will have 600 points added back to their accounts as the newly adjusted price will come in at 1,800 CP.

The Crash Bandicoot bundle is expected to be landing back in the store in the near future, where the new price will be added and players can get their fruit-mashing tracer rounds pointed in the right direction. All without the cries of an emptied wallet being heard.
