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.
@KORNdog: Trinity is still there sadly.. I actually want them to ditch supporting characters all together... Lara needs to be alone. That's what makes Lara who she is! (1 Hour ago)
there's no way around the street-fighter-syndrome with ensemble movies, and some characters and parts felt just put in to keep the characters relevant/warm (hello Black P) Other than that it was great (3 Hours ago)
his journey, while the other are mostly just popping in. Really great character and story-arc. For once a bad-guy with a good motive. (3 Hours ago)
watched Avengers 3 yesterday. Was better than expected as i'm not a big fan of royal rumble mashups. What held it all together was the story of Thanos. In many ways this is his movie as we follow (3 Hours ago)
that should at least push you forward and help you look past lara croft herself being lame. (5 Hours ago)
i just want a better game than rise ended up being. hire some decent writers. ditch the trinity tedium. introduce some characters that are interesting. (5 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: i get the impression we'll just get an extended Cgi trailer and gameplay won't be seen until E3. hope i'm wrong though. (5 Hours ago)
