As we mentioned earlier, Marvel’s Avengers has announced its retirement. Crystal Dynamics will now transfer the remaining team to work in the Tomb Raider Series. An insider claimed that the project would be finished this year. There are still problems with Perfect Dark’s development.
Miller Ross, an insider, announced that Marvel’s Avengers would no longer be supported one day before the official announcement. But, he stated that Crystal Dynamics was moving project staff over to Tomb Raider. He said that the development of the latter was already well advanced, so much so that a full-fledged presentation is planned for this year.
Crystal Dynamics reported that the next Tomb Raider would be revealed in 2023.
Unreal Engine 5 is currently being used for the development of the new Tomb Raider. Square Enix did not publish the original parts of the game. The game will instead be published by Amazon Games. Rumours suggest that Lara Croft, a tomb raider from the past, will inspire a new generation and join her colleagues on an adventure. The heroine was a solo person in the past. This will make her feel uncomfortable within the team, but she must overcome this. It is expected that Lara will also be able to control other tomb-raiders.
Crystal Dynamics is currently developing Perfect Dark for Xbox Game Studios in addition to Tomb Raider. According to another insider, the game’s development team “has hit some hurdles”, which is why Perfect Dark will be released in 2020.
