The forthcoming Tomb Raider title, which is presently under production at Crystal Dynamics, is scheduled to be unveiled later this year, according to the latest study. The game is supposedly “far into full-scale production,” with devs being pulled off of Marvel’s Avengers to focus only on it. However, the exact venue for the game’s reveal remains unknown.
Based on a claim from Xputer’s Miller Ross, who is a reliable source, work on Marvel’s Avengers has been halted sooner than expected following the resignation of game director Brain Waggoner. Amazon Game Studios, the game’s publisher, apparently hopes to announce Tomb Raider this year and will move the other Marvel’s Avengers devs on to that development.
Little is known about the forthcoming Tom Raider game beyond the knowledge that it’s going to be the first title in a long time not released by Square Enix. Following the sale of its Western studios to Embracer Group, the company returned management of beloved series like Tomb Raider and Deus Ex to its original creators.
