Don’t confuse “LCatGoL” with “Tomb Raider 9”!

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.

If you have a TR-Fansite or even are a pro magazine editor i highly recommend to follow CrystalDynamics on twitter (of course you should follow me as well).

It seems that LCatGoL is not meant to be the next real Tomb Raider sequel. To me it looks more like a promotional mini game or something like that. Hard to believe that i shall open my purse for it…

Last summer i posted a few images that seemed to be mistakenly published concept art from the upcoming Tomb Raider 9. It was also stated that the series would try many new things, untypical for Lara Croft, like an open-world scenario for example…

The rumors are no rumors, they’re real!

Game developer studios Crystal Dynamics confirmed the production of “Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light“, the next Tomb Raider sequel…

Tomb Raider 9: Lara Croft in an Open-World Scenario!

A secret whitepaper and some artworks of the next Tomb Raider game show that Lara Croft’s future is probably lying in the past.

It seems that the game will feature a “rebooted” young Lara and tells how she became to be the well-known archaeologist, the tomb raider we know so well.

The problem is that the whitepaper seems to be released by accident. Neither the script nor the concept art is validated so far – but interesting to look at…
