I seriously don't understand, why they had to do this. Tomb Raider might have turned out completely different. Not to mention, it would have been a very nice gesture to let Core to say goodbye to their baby.
Eidos made Crystal make Anniversary after Core got bought by a different company.

and?

Core Desing was pretty much active when the 10th anniversary of TR was coming along; and Eidos announced a 10th anniversary remake by Crystal.
The thing is, Crystal reimagined it, while Core remade it- expanded it.
At that time they were 'experimenting' with a new engine called Free run. Core got greenlight from Eidos, but Crystal being themselves, tried to got rid of Core D. (no conspiracy here, simply two rival studios, even if Core was a small studio compared to Crystal)
Eidos in the end decided to go along with TRA, even if it was a bit late, and TRAE got shut down...along with Core Desing. (They were struggling to stay relevant and TRAE was their last chance)

Was looking at the screenshots of the game on GOG.

Found these.





Lara seems to possibly have a silencer on her right vector.

I know there are promo images for the Scorpion-X, MV9 and Mag Vega with the silencer but never heard anything about the Vector.

Also am I the only one wondering how the heck this only got rated 12+ in European countries?

Considering how the Sanitarium sections have dismembered bodies.

Admittingly Core were too ambitious and missed deadlines but that doesnt change the fact, that wen the games release date was rescheduled and Core got their act together, Eidos just took pretty much a years worth of development time away that they both previously agreed to.
This. It seems to almost repeat itself every time we get to the end of each series - idk about anyone else on here but for me Shadow lacked a certain quality.

I just remembered that AOD is 12+, that's actually insane considering how dark the game is lmfao. The older TR's are like 16+ but this one was way more graphic.

Eidos Interactive was literally a total joke. Like there was literally nothing that just came right out of their own mouths that is really them!! Therefore they have been always out up on a show and say the craziest things that I ever heard of like rushing this game right out of the door from that night from 2003 which literally represents the end of my period that I was born within as well.
