It appears likely that we will soon be able to learn more specifics about the “next-gen” Tomb Raider. The project is in a crucial stage of production, as one of the insiders points out.
Crystal Dynamics is creating a narrative-driven game that will be prepared for a single player and will focus on presenting the intrepid archaeologist’s next experiences. This new game will be set in the evocative Tomb Raider universe. The latest iteration of the series’ official publisher, Amazon Games, and Unreal Engine 5’s capabilities are used by the developers. However, recent reports on the loss of funding for Marvel’s Avengers present good news for Lara Croft enthusiasts.
Insider Miller Ross, who has frequently shown that he has access to a wealth of insider knowledge about the company, claimed on the Exputer website that Crystal Dynamics is gearing up for more intense work on Tomb Raider, which is why the creators are wrapping up work on the superhero adventure.
The “whole production phase” of the new Tomb Raider is probably already underway, thus the project needs more help from the community. According to the insider, experts involved in the expansion of Marvel’s Avengers will assist with this.
Additionally, the new Lara Croft adventure would be formally unveiled this year. This allegation slightly alludes to Phil Rogers, CEO of Crystal Dynamics, who confirmed in a statement from November that the studio would provide information about the project in 2023.
When the new mission was being implemented, Lara would have to work with a group of hunters, and a specialist with her knowledge might not always be available. At the time, there was a lot of debate about the narrative of a new chapter in the brand’s history. According to rumors, the writers planned to include a romantic theme and depict the lead character in romantic settings.
