Crystal Dynamics has announced that the next major entry in the Tomb Raider series will be published by Amazon Games.
The next multiplatform title, which is touted to be the biggest and most expansive Tomb Raider game to date thanks to Unreal Engine 5, is described as “a single-player, narrative-driven adventure that continues Lara Croft’s story in the Tomb Raider series,” and will include all of the familiar elements that fans have come to expect from the series such as taking control of Lara Croft across a variety of environments, solving mind-bending puzzles, and defeating many foes.
“Crystal Dynamics has an extraordinary opportunity following our acquisition by Embracer to redefine what a publishing relationship is for Tomb Raider,” said Scot Amos, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics “Transformative is what we’re looking for, and with Amazon Games, we found a team that shares our creative vision, ambitions, and values for a Lara Croft universe across the spectrum of possibilities. They’re uniquely positioned to rewrite what publishing and development collaborations are, and we’re eager to forge this new path together, starting with building the biggest and best Tomb Raider game yet!”
No further details have been revealed, so we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out more about the upcoming game.
