The thing with this is, that she very well could have already written a decent chunk of the third game, for sure! Perhaps even the majority of it, but they'll get a new writer in to polish and fix any plot holes now that she is gone. I'm assuming CD/SE kept Rhianna there from the beginning since she was already their staple writer for the previous two games, so I'm sure they have most of what they'd need anyway, they more than likely need a tidying-up-writer to simply polish the story

Well, that was unexpected.

I'm not gonna miss her, but the news is neither good nor bad until you know what you'll get instead...

I think this is good news for the next Tomb Raider game. Story and dialogues were the weakest points of the Reboot and RotTR in my opinion. I wish her good luck though.

SotTR was probably in development before RotTR was launched, maybe even before it was finished, so we don't know how much she wrote for it.

IMO, this is good news for the TR franchise. She never understood Lara, not even tried to, she just got a lot of prejudice towards her and Core games. And as a writter, she isn't anything special, TR2013 and RotTR are clichés fests, daddy issues and even have some plotholes (like I've said before, Lara was hopping to meet Jacob (the prisioner) before she got caught, but then she wasn't). I hope the next writter is better and, for fans sake, a classic games fan.

According to Rhi herself, she didn't want the 'daddy issues' in Rise, but CD did, so she wrote it in. Also, she was only one of five writers for Rise. Just to clarify.

They probably won't need another writer then to complete the story for - what is presumably called - Shadow

I didn't know that. Thanks for clarifying! She did a good job, hopefully the next game will have a deeper more polished story.

Well this is a little disheartening. I wish her luck though.
