I think they will need to work with the next gen consoles. CD did a lot to make TR "relevant" again, and making the next game on expired gen tech would loose that momentum as well as credibility as a TR comeback.

SE has said as much as they can't wait 4-5 yrs for AAA releases, but not sure another TR will be coming out in a year.

A new TR game can easily come out in a year. The original TR2 came out a year after the original TR1 and the team was considerably smaller, yet they managed to make an outstanding sequel. CD can do it, if they don't do it it is bc they do not want to. Hopefully they will release a TR2 next year.

Dustie 11-06-13 22:35

Times were completely different back then and games development did not require nearly as many human resources as today. Average team size for an AAA title is at least 10 times bigger as compared to how it was back in the late 90s. Saying a sequel could "easily" come out in a year is a stretch. We might be very well getting some information about it next year, maybe even as early as in a few months from now (announcement, confirmation, etc.) but I think the earliest the game could be actually released is next year's holiday season. As in Christmas holiday season.

motoleo 11-06-13 22:40

I doubt it. People like to say how soon it's possible to get, but you might as well wait at least 3 years. I never wait for Tomb Raider games.

Horus-Goddess 11-06-13 22:55

Personally I hope they're given enough time to make something decent. Not everyone can pull off what Ubisoft is doing... heh. And they have multiple teams working on their AC games so that they can come out as frequently as they do.

I want Crystal to continue to improve upon their current formula while still being captivating for their target audience. I'm afraid that if they try and push out another game so soon, that wont be the case. Maybe I'm wrong but, generally speaking a good game takes at least what, 2-3 years?

JsotoTRSaga 11-06-13 23:15

^The sequel has been in pre development for a while so it does not need to come out in 2 or 3 years...

This is the perfect date TBH, it should be released next year's holiday season just like most of the AAA titles.

Oh of course. The only reason I'm still here is for the hope that Reflections was already in the works, but that could be a year off too.

JsotoTRSaga 11-06-13 23:29

BTW Motoleo, there has not been a confirmation on LC Reflections so perhaps it got scrapped or the second game will be called Tomb Raider 2: Reflections. Hopefully the second one is what it is.

motoleo 12-06-13 00:00

I hope it's not called Tomb Raider 2. That's too basic.

Nope, if it's a Tomb Raider game, then it would be called Tomb Raider : Lara Croft Reflections :D

But i don't think so.

TRBeth 12-06-13 00:08

Since there is thinking out of the box in AAA game development going on at SE, there is no real telling what we can expect from the next TR game. However, FF is coming out for next gen, so there is no way that TR is going to be made for the old systems.

I think a new game could be done for Xmas 2014 if all of the expensive interactive cinematics is cut back on. Less money spent on the game, game released sooner, more gamer immersion. Win-win for all.

In my mind, "Reflections" sound more like TR5 format revisited. However, that would not make any sense since CD is determined to bury everything about past TRs and reinvent the franchise.

motoleo 12-06-13 00:08

we already know what reflections is though...

Vinkula 12-06-13 00:26

What Reflections is?

Why not? it is a bad business decision for CD to make TR2 exclusive for next gen and not available for the current systems bc it is common sense that most of the gamers will not own a next gen console by the time the sequel releases, that assuming it releases on 1 or 2 years. If it gets released later then who can tell.... either way i find it selfish and rude for them to neglect current gen owners by releasing a next gen only game.

Sounds convincing :p, i don't think so either but i sure hope so :D

Stevo505 12-06-13 03:26

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Reflections

:p

larafan25 12-06-13 03:45

I hope they don't bring back the "Lara Croft" part of the title. ._.

Are we all sure LC:F is a game?

No it totally is, I forgot, there's a website. It must be.

Hmmm.

Hm hm hm...

motoleo 12-06-13 04:03

I'd like to hear you talk in real life.

The theory that I'm going with, that I personally believe is the trademark registered with almost identical terms to how the Guardian of Light was described.

There's no doubt in my mind that it's a game.

I type as I think/ talk in ma mind. So I talk like I post.

The game is totes a game, and a sequel to GOL even if the plots are (hopefully) not connected. I believe your theory.

In fact, now that CD have goobered in some more Lara fans, there will perhaps be more of an audience for LC:Reflections.

UH. Now I can't wait. It's going to be fantasy, magical, tombs, creatures, monsters, a cool little Lara Croft, an interesting historical companion (maybe).

I need to know.

I must understand.

Thousands of posts consisting of rambling nonsense, then you go and say something that actually makes sense. What's the catch? :pi:

I think it's gonna be a sequel for GoL but not with the same storyline or the same second protagonist.

If it is, I'll buy that game the minute it gets on PSN. I simply adored Guardian of Light, it was HELL FUN, it had lot of puzzles (excelent puzzles), non-stoping action, lots of tombs, temples... that IS what Tomb Raider is about. Pure adventure. No wonder it is the highest rated game in the franchise from Crystal Dynamics along with this new TR.

[Xmas] 12-06-13 14:34

I really hope they won't bring Totec back, his character was TERRIBLE.

So poorly written & the whole idea was poorly realized.

You're talking about depth of character in an arcade shooter. Do you realise how insanely bonkers that sounds? That's like saying the original Super Mario Bros was "poorly written & the whole idea was poorly realized" because we didn't know if Mario came from a broken home or something.

Steven_1379 12-06-13 14:55

did the world change and left me to be the last one on the list to find out because of the pride inside of me?

haha yeah this exactly. Which is why I never understood why reviews always marked down GoL for the story. I mean, seriously, who cares about the story? It's an arcade game. The gameplay is where it's at. :p

larafan25 12-06-13 17:38

Hopefully the gameplay is where it's at in TR10.

Though I think an arcade game can have an amazing story. I think the simpler, the shorter and the quicker the story is, the easier you can just plop in a good moral and create an effective story. As opposed to dragging a narrative across a long, rollercoaster campaign.

edit: In fact it would be amazing, if they simply interrupt gameplay a mere 4 or 5 times with a truly breathtaking and climactic cutscene.

oh no I agree an arcade game can have an awesome story. What I mean is that if it does have a weak story, I don't see any reason for it to detract since the gameplay is meant to be the highlight of the game.

And yeah I agree about the effective story things, and I also agree that there be less cutscene interruptions. I like it when you have to work for a breathtaking custcene, instead of being bombarded with one every 5 minutes. Make them count, not overdone. :)

We really need something new soon. It's almost as quiet around here as it is in the Eidos Forums or that year of no TR news. :(

Exactly my thoughts.

Evan C. 12-06-13 21:46

As I said on the other thread, if Crystal will be tomorrow at E3, they won't be there to talk about what they did. Probably they will be showing something, hopefully TR related.

Mikky 12-06-13 21:47

I actually prefer it quiet. Less people complaining and less people arselicking. If only people knew how to be objective. Ridiculous idea, right?!

But yeah, I suppose seeing a teeny, tiny teaser would be alright...
