Originally planned to be released in Fall 2012, Crystal Dynamic’s re-imagined and reboot of Tomb Raider has been delayed until Q1 2013. A message from Darrell Gallagher, the Head of Crystal Dynamics stated:
A Message to the Tomb Raider Community
When Crystal Dynamics first set out to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise, there were two goals that we were extremely passionate about. The first was to create a modern Tomb Raider game that would surprise and excite gamers. The second was to make this the best game of our careers, something we would be really proud to be a part of. We truly believe that we have something very special on our hands and we can’t wait to share it with you.
Our priority now is to make sure we fully deliver the very highest quality game. In order to do this, we have decided to move the game’s release date by a few months, from Fall 2012 to the first quarter of 2013.
We’re doing things that are completely new to Tomb Raider in this game and the additional development time will allow us to put the finishing touches into the game and polish it to a level that you deserve. We believe this is the right choice and I guarantee it will be worth the wait. The game is looking amazing and we can’t wait to show it to everyone at E3 in a few weeks.
The original showing of Tomb Raider at E3 2011 did surprise a lot of people. It is without a doubt that they will be showcasing something at E3 that will impress us even more.[Source: Eidos Forums]
