Crystal Dynamics has announced that Tomb Raider won't be released this Fall as it was planned. Square Enix targets now Q1 2013 for the survival adventure of Lara Croft. One new screenshot inside.
A Message to the Tomb Raider Community
When Crystal Dynamics first set out to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise, there were two goals that we were extremely passionate about. The first was to create a modern Tomb Raider game that would surprise and excite gamers. The second was to make this the best game of our careers, something we would be really proud to be a part of. We truly believe that we have something very special on our hands and we can’t wait to share it with you.
Our priority now is to make sure we fully deliver the very highest quality game. In order to do this, we have decided to move the game’s release date by a few months, from Fall 2012 to the first quarter of 2013.
We’re doing things that are completely new to Tomb Raider in this game and the additional development time will allow us to put the finishing touches into the game and polish it to a level that you deserve. We believe this is the right choice and I guarantee it will be worth the wait. The game is looking amazing and we can't wait to show it to everyone at E3 in a few weeks.
Oh, and price. You're getting a more powerful system, for less money. Just in terms of perceived value atm, i'd need the xbone price to be lower then that of the PS4. Since it's not as powerful. (36 minutes ago)
Instead of going for a tech first approach like they did the last 2 generations, they went for a novelty first approach, like nintendo did with the wii and wii-U? It bit them in the ass. (46 minutes ago)
But when it comes to single console owners, you go where the better versions of all games are. Last gen it was 360. This gen it is PS4. MS just screwed up their priorities. (48 minutes ago)
And for most people, that's all they want. Exclusives are vital for additional systems...since that's all you will be playing on them. (50 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Yeah i guess thats it then. The multiplats. (51 minutes ago)
And guess which system plays them better? And you wonder why people are flocking to the PS4? In terms of consoles it gives you the better version of massive franchises like COD, BF, and AC. (52 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: as much as people put stock in exclusives. If you're only buying one system it's the multiplats that hold more weight. Since there are more of them.. (53 minutes ago)
