They could totally do this with the spin offs. Build a small team, and use the LC brand to make classic-like, low budget games.

I'm just saying, all these colossal budgets and production values leave little room for creative ideas or good decisions. It's why the reboot trilogy has been playing it so safe, both as it's own entity and also in incorporating Classic elements.

Well, the Lara Croft series is kinda that - not exactly independent but it has kinda the scale and budget of an indie game... And they're not even making those anymore... We'll be lucky to get a new Lara Croft pencil in 2021.

Honestly. It would do the franchise so much good, or like others said, they could make a classics-inspired spin-off series like what the LC titles were.

Playing Hollow Knight and it just makes me wish more and more someone would develop a 2D Metroidvania Tomb Raider spin-off!

And that the main games implemented that in 3D :P

I don't know if you meant for this to come off as back handed, but it definitely does, lol.

“aww, the classic fans can have the little low budget games, they make them in the corner over there with the scraps and left overs, it’s so cute.”

You shouldn’t have to relegate the source material to spin offs and low budget titles, while an entirely new IP gets to come in and take over the brand name, that’s so ridiculous.

It’s always bugged me that this idea of classic TR only being allowed to exist in spin off titles and the LC series has become normal on here. It’s not normal for a developer to make a new IP and slap an already existing franchises name on it and then relegate what that franchise used to be to low budget arcade spin off titles.

I don’t think it needs to be indie for it to be faithful to the source material. It just needs to be with a developer that gives a **** and wants to be faithful and accurate to what the franchise was.

I suppose the duals are part of Black Widow's iconography - but certainly not Lara's, "forget everything you know about TR" and so on...

Makes me wish someone from Core was supervising the franchise, the same way this game is being supervised by Marvel so CD would be forced to start respecting the IP again.

Or, they could resurrect the LC series and have that be an outlet - but I suppose they wouldn't, since ToO had an underwhelming response.

Which, by the way, was absolutely not because of the ROTTR exclusivity fiasco that was concurrent to its release or anything...
