They barely did anything with TR for Rise, I doubt they even care at this point lol.

Crystal has had a bias for MS every single time since the franchise was taken from Core. That's not a subjective observation. They would always present on Microsoft's stages, have advertisements and vignettes through and for MS, have Xbox bundles, exclusive timed and permanent DLC and the list goes on. They're an associated act.

Good point, you’re right. My mistake.

I'm wondering if this is all getting postponed for the new consoles or something.

Maybe it's already been said here, sorry if it has, I've been on a TRF break

Wouldn't exactly be 'coming soon' then, would it

Plus with backwards compatibility, I don't see why they would bother waiting till the new consoles release.

Doubt it. New consoles are (likely?) coming in 1 year or so. In regards to the new consoles, I'm sure they're targeting TR12, as they've hinted at it in one interview

I think they're simply finishing it up (and it's likely there's a really small team working on it, therefore taking it longer, as most of CD and EM are working on the Avengers now) + they're likely targeting a specific release window (if they're actually releasing a Definitive Edition). Also, they're also making Linux and Mac ports.

My current guess would be around the holidays, as it would be a smart business move to make more Money out of the game, and the DLC will likely be used as a selling point to attract more buyers

Something like: "SOTTR DE is out now, featuring all previously released 7 DLCs, and a brand new surprise DLC8, featuring Lara in the surroundings of classic Tomb Raider - the fully explorable Croft Manor!"

No, but that's why I'm wondering if it was a decision made later / change of plans.

I could totally see a definitive edition on new consoles being more appealing than a definitive edition barely a year after release. Especially if the main series is on hold for a while due to Avengers. But I'm just speculating, of course I could be wrong on this.

What I see happening is:

Definitve Edition this year, for SOTTR, with all the DLCs

Late 2020 release of a trilogy bundle to the new gen - this would result in the reboot TR games being one of the first games to make it into the new generation, and serving as a way to get people up to date with the story, and ready for the sequel which will likely launch in 2021-2022

That's exactly what I thought they would do as well. Would be the best marketing strategy - which is why CD/SE would never go for it
