Considering how it went for Borderlands 3 and Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, as much as I enjoy Gearbox's output myself, I'm not sure their involvement would do TR much good in the public eye.

That’s fantastic news, although it appears he’s still associated with a different aspect of Gearbox. I wouldn’t want any part of Gearbox touching Tomb Raider, especially if Pitchford is even tangentially involved with the company.

Lol. I've heard some stuff about him. Some say that he stole the budget that SEGA gave him for Aliens Colonial Marines to spend them on Borderlands 2 and Duke Nukem Forever.(Which is one of the reasons on why Aliens game became a disaster.)

If Embracer feels so strongly and passionate for TR then maybe they will actually interfere with CD and actually assign remakes or ports to another company after all. Given how enthusiastic they are about Ash's campaign to preserve TR Anniversary from Core Design, it maybe a good sign.

Maybe Ash's efforts could push Embracer to consider actually doing the ports/remakes in the end.

We shall see

Edit

It could light a fire under CD ass if their franchise is given to another company to work on.

Completely true, and the main reason why I refuse to support Gearbox and am strongly against them.

On Twitter, check out tomb of ash where he is doing a fund raiser to make physical copies of TR 10th Anniversary edition. One of the copies will be donated to a museum for preservation and Embracer apparently wants a copy made for their office as well, although don't quote me on the specifics.

Apparently the CEO of embracer is really excited about the project.

I think that would be a great decision for CD. Let them just do something else and get away from TR permanently or for at least awhile. There’s not too many video game companies that are successful that just do ONE game. Let them do something else and give TR to someone new and see a new and fresh take on the franchise and hope for a return of more Classic elements at the root of TR.
