Crystal Dynamics finally announced their new game today: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
, will be released via digital download sometime this year
. Yep, no "Tomb Raider" tag, just plain Lara Croft. The press release didn't include any details, and neither was there as explanation for why they dropped the Tomb Raider title. No mention of platforms too.
“This is a really exciting project for Crystal Dynamics, we have created something completely new
and very different to what people might be expecting
,” said Darrell Gallagher, General Manager of Crystal Dynamics. “Lara Croft is such an iconic character in videogames, with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
we have created what we believe is a truly original digital experience.”
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
will be shown off behind closed doors at GDC beginning March 9th. Let's all hope for a video -- leaked or otherwise -- after then.
