Lara Croft is a fictional character, but he is so deeply embedded in the collective imagination that when news of his possible return to the scene emerges, it is natural that everyone rushes to find out more, and this time it is Crystal Dynamics talking about Tomb Raider.
The rumor had been floating around for a while, and that the company was in fact working on a new heroin adventure of all of us is known, but Phil Rogers, CEO of Crystal Dynamics, spoke in detail about the topic at a recent investor meeting, stating that the company will be ready to release various information about Tomb Raider in the course of 2023.
We can’t currently release details, much less tell you if what we have in store will be a one-shot adventure or the start of something new for the franchise, but the team is excited to show the direction we’ve taken and as soon as possible, next year, we will.
Despite Square Enix’s sale of the development team and fans’ concerns about the progress of work on the new Tomb Raider, the company stated that it was serene, and it appears that things are even better with the new group on board, Embracer Group.
Who is behind Tomb Raider New Game?
The Tomb Raider property, as well as three of its Western development teams. Square Enix, the game’s longtime publisher, sold Eidos Interactive, Crystal Dynamics, and Square Enix Montreal to the Swedish company Embracer Group on May 3 for $300 million.
As part of the agreement, Square also transferred the rights to a Thief, Legacy of Kain, and Deux Ex properties.
Even though nothing has been officially confirmed, it is entirely possible that the game and its developer, Eidos Montreal, will continue to work solely on the franchise and a fourth entry in the current game story.
The Reddit leaks haven’t been confirmed yet, but it’s likely that as more rumors about a future Tomb Raider circulate, we’ll get closer to learning something concrete about Lara Croft’s upcoming storyline.
