Tomb Raider still coming after big changes, Crystal Dynamics confirm

By Sean Lawson,

Crystal Dynamics has released a statement to assure Tomb Raider fans that the next game is still underway despite the recent Embracer shakeup.

While we still have a long way to go until the next Tomb Raider game makes an appearance, we do have the Shadow of the Tomb Raider trophies to keep us company. After Embracer's recent restructuring, Crystal Dynamics has jumped in to reassure fans that Tomb Raider is still progressing as intended. Could this new installment mean Lara Croft will finally enter our best PS5 games list?

Embracer Group restructure won't impact the new Tomb Raider game

Embracer Group recently tweeted an open letter on a restructuring program that is currently underway within the company. This, of course, had many worried about various games that are currently in the works and if these titles may be delayed or canceled outright — Tomb Raider being at the forefront of those worries. Thankfully, Crystal Dynamics responded to this tweet, putting to bed any concerns about the next installment in the Tomb Raider series, as well as the new Perfect Dark game.

"Thanks to everyone for reaching out and asking about the most recent news by our parent company Embracer Group regarding the restructuring plans. We want to reassure fans that there will be no impact to our continuing efforts with our partners at The Initiative on Perfect Dark, or our next Tomb Raider title being developed in collaboration with Amazon Games."
So, for all of you worrying — ourselves included — about Tomb Raider's future, it seems everything is still going according to plan. We received news through a small Tomb Raider reboot update about Amazon's involvement with the newest game. We are yet to see what the shopping juggernaut will be bringing to the table, though, we can only hope Amazon's involvement will help Lara Croft's next adventure to shine brighter than ever.

Are you excited to see Lara Croft make a triumphant return? Happy to hear that the Embracer restructure hasn't impacted Tomb Raider's development? It'll be interesting to see if the new Tomb Raider game can make it as one of the best PlayStation games ever. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
