Yet another post about this weekend’s “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light” confusion.
Crystal Dynamics’ information policy makes it really hard to understand what’s going on in Croft Manor. As an positive effect CD made some big headlines, though almost every Tomb Raider fansite i saw only stated unconfirmed or wrong information – including mxm.
Even most professional online game magazines still post wrong facts about Tomb Raider 9 and LCatGoL! This leads to a disappointed fanbase and big loads of comment trolling. Lady Croft won’t be amused.
I hope the following statement will help to stop the confusion:
The game announced as “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light” IS NOT “Tomb Raider 9”.
Crystal Dynamics has not pushed out any information about Tomb Raider 9 yet. They only speak mysteriously about a second project they are already working on.
I might be right that LCatGoL is more or less a side product to build a bridge between Underworld and TR9, make the waiting time more entertaining for the fans and help Lara to jump onto the front pages more often.
