The Next Tomb Raider will be publsihed by Amazon Games


Earlier today Amazon Games and Crystal Dynamics reached an agreement that the next Tomb Raider game will be published by Amazon Games.

In the press release published today, they have unanimously agreed that Crystal Dynamics will be developing a brand new Tomb Raider title that will be available on multiple platforms. Amazon Games will then lend its support by publishing that title among them. Little was revealed in the press release about the next entry in the Tomb Raider franchise. The only information given was that it would continue the story of Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider series. Furthermore, the next Tomb Raider game will be a single player and narrative adventure that will bring back iconic elements from the past Tomb Raider games.

The press release also included more information on the development of the next Tomb Raider game. The game is currently being developed on the brand new Unreal Engine 5. Using this brand new graphics engine will help create a vast and graphically beautiful world. They aim to revolutionize the franchise by making its graphics absolutely stunning and innovative gameplay. Other than that, no other information has been given as the game is currently in an early stage of development. They indicated that more details about the game will be revealed at a later date.

Crystal Dynamics, the original developer of Tomb Raider, was originally part of Square Enix. Crystal Dynamics was bought by the Embracer Group back in May. This step was taken as Crystal Dynamics wanted more freedom in releasing their games. So far, this transfer appears to be in Crystal Dynamics’ favour, as they have agreed to let Amazon Games publish one of their most popular and historic titles. They believe that Amazon Games has the vision they are looking for when it comes to game publishing.

As this news comes to light, there is a disagreement among fans regarding this agreement. Some fans are worried about the future of the franchise, considering Amazon Games doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to video games. On the other hand, many believe in the developers at Crystal Dynamics since Amazon Games are only the publishers and Crystal Dynamics is still the one responsible for its development. However, only after the release of the game can it be said whether this agreement will be fruitful.
