CRYSTAL DYNAMICS ANNOUNCES NEW LARA CROFT™ ADVENTURE
LARA CROFT AND THE GUARDIAN OF LIGHT™



SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 4, 2010 – Crystal Dynamics™, a part of Square Enix Europe, today announced Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light™, a new game developed by Crystal Dynamics, which will be released via digital download in 2010.

“This is a really exciting project for Crystal Dynamics, we have created something completely new and very different to what people might be expecting,” said Darrell Gallagher, General Manager of Crystal Dynamics. “Lara Croft is such an iconic character in videogames, with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light we have created what we believe is a truly original digital experience.”

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light will be shown strictly “behind closed doors” at this year’s Game Developers Conference beginning on March 9th.

Crystal Dynamics is an award-winning studio located in San Francisco. Founded in 1992, the studio has created and developed key game franchises such as: Legacy of Kain™, Pandemonium™, Gex™ and most recently the Tomb Raider™ series.

Well I like the logo and name at least, although surprised we lost Tomb Raider from the title. Still thinking about the rest.

Finally! Some good news from the Tomb Raiding Segment!
Although it's a bit shocking that they cut out Tomb Raider from the title.. they should keep it...

2 projects.. so... This is not a Tomb Raider but a side-game of the TR series...

If so.. I wish it's a TR2 remake :P

EDIT: I read somewhere the Crystal Dynamics will only be working on TR projects for now.. can anyone at Eidos / Crystal Dynamics confirm or deny this?
