Shadow of the Tomb Raider is on the way! This new installment won’t be developed by longtime Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics. Instead, Eidos Montreal, the studio behind the Deus Ex series, is taking over production of Shadow the Tomb Raider. It remains to be seen how a new studio will bring a fresh approach to the series.
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that there is a new Tomb Raider in the works. After all, Square Enix’s reboot of the franchise has been tremendously successful in terms of critical acclaim and market success. The recent Tomb Raider games have been praised for their strong narratives and clever reimaginings of classic Tomb Raider tropes.
It’s not going to be easy to replicate the accomplishments of those titles, but at a time when the Uncharted series is likely taking a break for the foreseeable future, Lara Croft’s return will be a welcome one indeed.
