Crystal Dynamics has announced it is now developing the next TOMB RAIDER

Crystal Dynamics are talented developers, that have great games in their past.
Don't understand why Sony or Microsoft didn't purchase them for cheap when they had the chance...
My understanding is that MS couldn't purchase them. The reason being that they needed to wait until their purchase for Activision was approved. I'm not sure if they weren't legally able to make the purchase but it would have looked bad considering so many in the ignorant media thinking MS will take over the world because they own call of duty.

MS has a great relationship with CD and would have been a strong studio purchase.

As a guy who loves solo games, gamepass and enjoys everything from CD, I think it was a huge loss for MS.

No, thank you. They are going to make Lara all ugly and butter face. Her character model in the Definitive Edition, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider are unattractive in the latest iterations. They literally hit her with a woke bat.
I'll give you that they fucked up the Definitive edition face, but Rise and Shadow? Nah, she smokin' in those games.

Yeah, we want racism in our games!
What a loser.

This is what woke imbeciles like you do soon as an opinion based on the norm and the average appears. You probably relished in that game that featured incest in it.

Woke games aren't just weird, they are shit. This is a fact.

The less it infects future releases the better, and if it pisses off brain dead morons like you that think you can just go call someone racist for not wanting it the better.

The modern world has got too comfortable with scum like you spouting that vile, you're taking away the real meaning of it as if its just normal to call it anyone that has a differing opinion.

You make my skin crawl, and yes I'm a person of colour myself.

Considering that they cost 300m and nobody aside Embracer paid more (with IP and stuff), tells me that they were not that great at all.

Considering that Square Enix West was on the market for some time and MS decided to go after a partnership rather than acquisition (while being in negotiation with Bungie) suggests that CD was not that great purchase at all regardless of ABK deal. Microsoft does not buy stuff randomly despite having money.

I'd rather play this than whatever bullshit they're cooking up:


If that leak is real then it sounds like shit. I barely had any interest in that recent reboot series because of the direction they took with it so if now they're gonna go even further in that direction then good fucking luck but I ain't playing it, lol.

Bruh... this looks too good...

It would be nice to have a Lara who will stfu for longer than 5 seconds...

Way too much yapping and over reactions from new Lara sound like a porno sometimes it's that bad.... Get rid of crafting I'm sick of this shit in games.

A cocky confident Lara who can back it up needs to come back.

We’re never getting anything like that again, because that kind of considered, thoughtful gameplay that Core perfected is anathema to modern, fast paced, microtransaction favouring gameplay style.

Tomb Raider is Uncharted but worse now. That’s all it is.

Sadly true... :messenger_neutral:
This is why the golden age of gaming in the 90's was so awesome. Dev-teams were smaller, and there was much less corporate bullshit around. Basically the games back then were made BY gamers FOR gamers - that's why the games had so much "soul". Gameplay first > everything else.

Shout-out to Core Design!

The forced dialogue is the norm in 2020 game design and it's fucking terrible.
