Hopefully this means an overhaul in ethos for the writing and story direction, Jesus of Nazareth knows it was needed. I just hope that in order for that to happen, she hasn't had any input for the next TR.

Well said.

I don't think Rihanna was the best writer and I'm not a fan of her Lara contributions but not everything was her fault like some seem to think. CD have good ideas but they cannot realise them and want too much involvement. For the next new arc they should give their core idea to a writer and let them do their thing. I still think the reason Angel of Darkness, for all its faults and even in its butchered state, has the best story because Murti Schofield was allowed to do his thing unhindered by core who knew their limits in that aspect.
Merry Christmas, Ya filthy animal.

I don't know how to feel tbh.
I am kinda sad. But at the same time excited about what's next.

Wish her all the best.

Very sad to hear this. I know a lot of people don't like the way she took the games but from a RATIONAL point of view if the Origins of Lara Croft is a trilogy I hope she wrote most of the bulk for game 3 "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" so at least the storylines and the trajectory they put Lara on is consistent.

The last thing you want to be perfectly blunt would be someone who wants "Core Design" Lara to write game 3 because critics will tear it apart if the trajectory is way off from the first two games. Hopefully they will finish their origins vision in game 3 then they can start fresh with the next trilogy of games and whether or not that's going to be more reminiscent of a Core Lara or whatever it is.

I still predict end of game 3 Lara will transform into something a lot like the character you see in the Lara Croft franchise like Temple Of Osiris or Lara Croft Go. It's been noted that's it's a much stronger brand than the TR franchise.

What a great news to read.

I've never been a fan of her personal take on the TR saga and the way she acted with regards of the classic iterations. Now there's no guarantee that the writing wil actually improve in the upcoming games but at least she's out of the picture, which is something.
