Crystal Dynamics is Working to Unify Both Tomb Raider Timelines
In a new video from Crystal Dynamics, the developers revealed intent to unify the classic Tomb Raider series and the reboot games. Citing the reboot series for making Lara Croft a survivor and hero, the goal is to make her the seasoned and confident hero we know from the classic games.
“We envision a future of Tomb Raider unfolding after these established adventures. Telling stories that build on the breadth of both Core Design and Crystal Dynamics’ games, working to unify these timelines,” says Will Kerslake, one of the Tomb Raider franchise Game Directors. “With Tomb Raider’s extensive history, this is no easy task. And we ask for your patience as we go through the development process.”
It seems that Crystal Dynamics is aware that fans want to see the Lara Croft they remember from the early games. Where things go from there, the ball is in their court. There are no games being announced in the near future, but the series will still have something to celebrate this year. Starting on February 1st, 2021, Crystal Dynamics will start various events to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the series. There’s also going to be a Netflix series, so fans can look forward to seeing that in the future.
