Before people start noticing, those listings were removed from any search results for Crash Bandicoot. However, box art of the game confirms that aside from last-gen consoles, Crash Bandicoot 4 will be playable on Xbox Series X as well.

There are no mentions of PC or Nintendo Switch version release unlike N. Sane Trilogy and CTR: Nitro-Fueled. Also, worth noting is that PS4 box art doesn't giveaway any hint of PlayStation 5 launch or supporting cross-gen capability just yet.

There is a short description featured within leaked listing of Crash Bandicoot 4, briefly detailing its premise.

Crash is relaxing and exploring his island in his time, 1998, when he finds a mysterious mask hidden away in a cave, Lani-Loli. The mask is one of the Quantum Masks and apparently knows Aku-Aku, Crash's mask friend! With the Quantum Masks returning and a Quantum Rift appearing near our heroes, they decide to bravely head through to different times and dimensions to stop whoever is responsible.

Earlier, Activision has sent a series of jigsaw puzzles to many news media with a note saying, "A little something to help you pass the TIME" and sent from "Your Favorite Bandicoot", which revealed to be a new character resembling Aku-Aku.

These signs are all clear indication of a new Crash Bandicoot game announcement since Activision has sent out mysterious hints to various outlets before revealing Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled and Spyro Reignited Trilogy in past.
