Crystal Dynamics announced it’s working on a new Tomb Raider game earlier this year and now we have some more details.
Today, Crystal Dynamics announced that Amazon Games will be the publisher of the new Tomb Raider and Amazon filled in a few details.
According to the press release, the new Tomb Raider will be a “single-player, narrative-driven adventure”, which means Crystal Dynamics will keep the formula fans know and love. Amazon also confirmed that the game will be a multiplatform one, so, just like with previous Tomb Raider games, there’s no need to worry about exclusivity issues.
Right now, the project is probably very early in the development stage, so the setting, plot points or images are still months, perhaps years away.
“Crystal Dynamics has an extraordinary opportunity following our acquisition by Embracer to redefine what a publishing relationship is for Tomb Raider,” said Scot Amos, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics.
“Transformative is what we’re looking for, and with Amazon Games, we found a team that shares our creative vision, ambitions, and values for a Lara Croft universe across the spectrum of possibilities. They’re uniquely positioned to rewrite what publishing and development collaborations are, and we’re eager to forge this new path together, starting with building the biggest and best Tomb Raider game yet,” he added.
It’s been a busy week for Amazon’s relationship with gamers, as this news comes right on the heels of the announcement of the God of War TV series, which will debut on Amazon Prime Video.
