Being as he screwed up big time in Legend, he better go back to his classic roots from TR1. Until I see that, I'm not convinced.

WOW... thats good news

Game Designer
Core Design

(Privately Held; Computer Games industry)

June 1994 — November 1997 (3 years 6 months)

I designed the original Tomb Raider game in 1995 along with the character Lara Croft. I managed the level designers, and built and animated most of the characters including Lara herself. I animated the ingame cutscenes and story boarded the FMV's.


LOL..... Not a bad thing to have in your resume huh???
"Yea... I kinda...created Tomb Raider............ no big deal"

This could be promising, he did work on Legend and Underworld though. It will be interesting to see if making him the lead designer really makes a difference or not. Of course now he has complete freedom to create a new story-line...

By any means it this will keep me interested in upcoming news.

TR9's not been mentioned anywhere. It's all assumption really. Even though Crystal apparently make no other games apart from TR now.
