I will go to the point :
is it not possible to please core design and eidos to work together to publish in some years a new tomb raider game?i know its hard but maybe we can make it with more then 37000 TRF members we have when everyone from us send Core and Eidos an email maybe we can make it.this is really important and would mark a new evolution of tomb raider.who knows,maybe CrystalD and Core could work together.please consider this thread seriously and please also response so.thank you all

Core Design doesn't exist anymore. The people who used to work there have most likely moved on with their lives. It's practically impossible, and highly unlikely that it will ever happen. Sorry.

That would be a pretty vainattempt. Core does not exist anymore, the makers of the old Tomb Raider games are all employed elsewhere with other companies and such.

hmmm, yes lets all go back to the days when Laras hands where blocks! :)
Crystal have brought Lara back, and some people are just bashing them just because Tomb Raider isn't like Tomb Raider. Core's Tomb Raider is obversly totally different from Crystals.it doesn't take much to know that Core Design aren't around anymore they have all moved on. Personally i think Crystal have moved in the right direction

Ahhh!!! I thought this was a thread concerning good news, not mere speculation (more than the one already running around).

You could have the same people that made TR1 but with a different name and people would still think they did it wrong just because their name isn't CORE. Some people can't be happy with what they get.

I agree with you 100%

Core were good back in the day, Tomb Raider has moved on. Lets all cry core design are no longer here. Seriously, they aint coming back. I've played it since i was 5 years old too, but seriously. This topic is boring and so out dated now, really need to stop going on about it :)

Sadly, it's never going to happen. Core Design will never come back. Eidos will never try and reform it, and even if they did, everybody who used to work there almost certainly won't be interested - they weren't treated very well by Eidos, after all, and on top of that, they've either got jobs at other video games companies now or, like the very founder of Core Design, have left the video games industry altogether. Even if the ex-Core Design employees were interested in reforming (and who knows, they may very well be interested), I doubt they'd bother returning to Eidos.

Which is a shame, if you ask me. They hardly deserved what they got, considering everything they did when they were around, but hey, that's Eidos for you. And it's not like things have gotten better since Core Design were fed to the wolves - two reboots in 3 years? That's hardly a prosperous sign...

^Good post. :)

Reassembling the whole team of old and handing the reigns back to them is lunacy at this stage. I loved the games of old but can anyone here really imagine Core Design being reassembled which is unlikely given that most are now tied up in other projects or leading new jobs and even if they did reassemble, would Eidos really want to re-hire them? Its sad that Core are gone and the circumstances in which they were eventually disolved (as well their succession of failed reformed companies) but its time to move on, they have.

I wish Core would come back also but the sad news they don't exist no more core won't come back period. :( PS TR is now in its third continuity 2nd coninuity eidos was around with CD but 3rd Eidos is gone and square enix taken over with CD.

You mean 2 reboots in 6 years as core got fed to the dogs in 03 and eidos got fed in 09.

Well ya know Toby Gard came back :pi:

Core is gone, they had their time on Tomb Raider. And ruddy good games they were too.

Crystal have made 3 Tomb Raider games which were, imo, equally good - in different ways. Let's look forwaard to TR9, not to the past. That's Lara's job.

True, but I was referring to when Legend was released (2006) and when Origins was announced (2009). At any rate, 6 years or not, it's still a short amount of time to have two reboots if you ask me. We've had three games since the last reboot, and now it's time for another, already? Not a good sign. Reboots are often successful (look at Batman) but reboots usually only occur when things have gone wrong (again, look at Batman).

what does prosperous mean?:)

In a nutshell, it means successful.

You know what?I would've love it if one day they decided to re-assemble in order to make a new game that had the same values the classic Tomb Raiders had and managed to successfully pitch it to a big publisher like Sony,MS,EA or someone else.
And if this new franchise became successful,Eidos would really cry with envy!:mis::jmp:

Absolutely. :D Perhaps my biggest gaming dream would be for something like this to happen, for Core Design to return to their former glory, but sadly, it's very unlikely, if not impossible. Some former Core Design members have already tried that with CiRCLE Studio and Crush Digital, but those companies and their games never took off. Such a shame.

It's a cute wish...which will never come true. But hey, we still can keep dreaming, and then I suggest you to check out custom levels - the really good ones recreate the classic TR feeling quite succesfully:tmb:

I think that eventually it all comes down to the concept idea and how much the publisher behind the team believes and supports the developers.As Crush Digital indeed they weren't successful enough but success takes time and (usually) many tries as well.Core Design made many games before they were relatively successful first with Rick Dangerous and then with Tomb Raider.
Look at Naughty Dog for example.Both Crash and Jack & Dexter were very good games but not even near as good or as popular as the classic Tomb Raider were.But they were fortunate enough to have the full support of a publisher like Sony and look what they did with Uncharted.

If the Core members could find a publisher like that and had a solid project that they were excited to work on,i'm sure that we wouldn't believe our eyes with the final result...Their talents still exist and will never disappear.They only need someone to put them together again,invest in their talent and ignite it back into action.;)

Exatually! Really man Core made their own way out, and I doubt they want to come back with TR. And CD are really good, you cann not see it but every is so detailed, worked, revised, but with Core's games wasn't actually like that:/ And just like someone has said already: either you stop being a TR who just think on the past or you grown some balls and face what TR is now:rolleyes: Sorry but thats the true:/

core made their games and got to go untill they failed hard...I'll give CD the same amount of games:)

it's obvious they are improving, it's not like they are bad developers and everyone has their different ideas of how tomb raider should be made:)

13-08-09, 04:31
Well the only way to get Core Design back on Tomb Raider is to give Tomb Raider to the Rebellion devolpment team because they are technically
Core Design's former employees:D:D:cln::)

what if there won't be eidos anymore? What if Core comes back but will work with someone else on TR? All I need is to have Core back.

Sometimes I actually wish Naughty Dog, Insomniac Games or Ubisoft would have the TR franchise after Core instead of Crystal. I have nothing against Crystal's games. They're very good in their own way but they keep rushing the games just to get them released on time(mostly Eidos's fault). While with Naughty Dog, Insomniac Games and Ubisoft, they all have great games on their side and actually take their time with their games, releasing them when they're actually finished.

Naughty Dog: Crash Bandicoot PS1 games, Jak and Daxter, Uncharted(even though Uncharted is ripping-off Tomb Raider, Naughty Dog made Uncharted more TR than what TR has been trying to be while with Crystal)

Insomniac Games: Spyro PS1 games, Ratchet and Clank.

Ubisoft: Prince of Persia SoT Trilogy, Assassin's Creed.

Either one of these companies would have been good to see TR made by to me. Imagine what they could have introduced to the franchise. But we haven't seen what Square-Enix are going to do to TR(Will it be a success or a failure?) Hopefully a success. So I'm keeping an open mind for what Square-Enix can bring to the franchise with TR9:)

You are all so right . Lets hope that the future TR games will be better than ever.doesnt has eidos a forum or mail where we can post advices and comments to the future tomb raider games?(I HEARD TR9 WILL RELEASE 2012!)

If that was up to me, I'd pick a a new developer instead of CD or Core. But between them I'd pick CD because going back to Core won't help.
