Crystal Dynamics global brand director says "It's not just one game" in reference to Lara Croft's origin story.
Despite the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot being some eight months away, developer Crystal Dynamics is already talking about plans for Lara Croft's future. Speaking to Videogamer, global brand director Karl Stewart teased that 2013's Tomb Raider is only the beginning of Croft's journey.
"You have to look at the future, you have to look at where…It's not just one game," Stewart said. "I have to be careful because I know exactly where she's going."
Stewart explained that with 2013's Tomb Raider, the goal for Crystal Dynamics is to establish Lara Croft as a "strong female character that is willing to go out and seek out mysteries." To tell her entire origin story will require at least another game, he teased.
"She's going to be going to plenty of tombs in this game, but we're going to have somebody who wants to go on that adventure, who wants to be the person that she now is," he said. "That's the goal."
Yesterday, it was announced that Camilla Luddington (William & Kate, True Blood, Californication) would provide the voice and performance for Croft in Tomb Raider.
he meant 'its not just one game that we are going to delay' its going to be more games in the series......and will create a shit storm over nonsense comments ......maybe next time it will feature lara and some S&M .....another 'evolution' of her character i suppose.....
@RulerofGondor I don't think what happened to Too Human had anything to do with planning a sequel in advance .. "planning" not developing .. it's still just an idea ... and it happens all the time in movie trilogies and games industry .. why are people making a big fuss about this !!!!!?
Crazier things have have happened but I was never convinced one game would be enough for her to complete her transformation from this inexperienced girl to the determined Lara Croft everyone knows. Also they're rebooting the series, you think they won't make sequels with the new Lara? It was inevitable
Wait? Already talking about a sequel? ''To tell her entire origin story will require at least another game''
Why don't you guys make a full game with good content, without taking out things so that you can make another game and than consider a sequel to the reboot? Because that's what I'm reading here. Splitting her origin story into two to get more money.
A reboot? What, you can't get new ideas and you want to recicle characters to capitalize on their past successes?
Wasn't there already a remake or Tomb Raider 1 a couple of years ago?
@Razorlight6@sachind1231 Razorlight's not reading too deep, the claim is legitimate and people ask that same question all the time. When there's a strong male lead no one ever feels the need to highlight the character's gender but when there's a strong female role gender is always specified. My belief is that it's because women don't usually have those kinds of roles.
Charlize Theron talked about this in a couple interviews for Snow White and the Huntsman
Please don't talk about sequel if you haven't released the reboot. That's a red flag for some of us indicating this one will be short. And saying, "To tell her entire origin story will require at least another game.", made us think this one will have cliffhanger ending.
I am still debating on whether or not I can forgive this franchise for "The Angel of Darkness" I don't think I have ever been so angry about spending 50 dollars all those years ago. There were so many glitches in that game I couldn't even get through 25% of it. Yes I tend to hold grudges......
Well, lets just get the game out first, then we'll worry about the sequel. Jokes aside, I think most companies, or a lot of companies are doing this now. I know the AC series did it. I know Beenox did it with their 2 latest Spiderman games. Even Epic was working on this GEars adaptation while Gears 3 was in development. I just can't wait to get my hands on this new Tomb Raider, as it looks amazing! I actually saw potential in the last TR, so hopefully they build off of that.
No surprise. These days sequels are almost required to make money off the investment on a game engine IMO.
Even so. I hope this game has a high focus on exploration and Lara vs the environment, with difficult puzzles and a lack of "press X for hints". Because Tomb Raider to me is mostly about exploring the environment - a lot of what I've seen just looks like Uncharted Starring Lara Croft.
Am I the only one that gets pissed off at game sequels being announced way before the game actually comes out? I mean, come on...way to toot your own damn horn. We don't even know if it's going to actually be GOOD or not.
