Since the 20 year anniversary of TR will be in 2016, and we all know ROTTR is coming for 2015, I have to wonder if there will be another remake.

What do you think? Would you want a remake? Do you expect one? What game(s) would you like to be remade?



I personally would love an HD remake of 2 and 3 combined, maybe like an HD classic series with Anniversary included. *idea partially... okay, fully... stolen from the upcoming Master Chief Collection for Halo*

It's definitely a possibility - but there are currently two games in development (ROOTR & LC:TOO). But 2016 is a while away, we'll just have to wait and see!

Id buy another Anniversary edition. I was very happy with the last anniversary edition made. I liked being able to change outfits and the look of the character. Definitely one of my favorite games in my collection. Plus it will help me get my Tomb Raider Fix since the new games have no tomb raiding :P The new Rise Of the Tomb Raider says it will have Tombs, but knowing its being made by people who hated the tombs, I dont think the tombs will be very good sadly. T_T

Since Anni came out 11 years after TR1, perhaps Anni 2 could do the same? (Gives them more time) On top of the first Anni release, of course... So 2018

That "I hate tombs" line probably. Its astounding how many people didn't get the joke..

This is what CD have said about remaking past TR games.

Are there plans to remake any other Tomb Raider titles such as was done with Anniversary?

KS: “No, there are no plans right now or in the future to develop any other Tomb Raider title besides what we’re currently working on. You can still play the original games on your PlayStation or PSP. As you know our goal is to start from day one with the franchise. This is it. This is Lara’s new adventure.” [Transcribed from Crystal Habit Podcast #3 (September 2011)]

I took that from in here http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=124504#FAQ:_LEGACY_TOMB_RAIDER_TITLES

^Except Karl also said there'd be no GoL sequel. :whistle:

I suppose it's possible. I'm among the few that actually liked TRA, though I can see flaws in it. A remake of TR2 would be nice or any of the Core games as a 20 year anniversary of the start of it all could just as well be celebrated with any game remade.

@BridgitFisher, you said you liked TRA, yeah? Well you know the same company that worked on TRA as the ones working on RotTR, the same company you say 'hate the tombs'. Granted, a lot of the team would be different.

A remake of TR2 would be just...AWESOME!!! It was such a great game and running around in Venice again or the wreck of the Maria Doria in HD would just be the coolest!!!

What a way to celebrate 20 years of Tomb Raider!!!

As much as I agree, it would be better if this anniversary is celebrated some other time. Now they're busy with new TR games. I would rather have one decent game than many unfinished ones.

Not that I would be bothered by a remake, but I wouldn't be surprised if LCTOO is out soon so they may have some bandwidth to do something?

Honestly, I sincerely hope not. It would be a complete back-pedal given the fact that they want us to forget the Lara we once knew, as this is her reincarnation. To remake a game from the generation they want us to forget seems quite foolish.

I can see your point... but iunno maybe just an HD remake like they did with the God of War titles would be a nice addition in my collection imo.

What was it you hated about the anni? Maybe the steam version fixed those things since its updated? I think there are different teams at Eidos since one team made Temple of Osiris and I saw this one guy from that team, he was awesome so happy and excited about it because he knows how much fun its gonna be!!! Maybe that team could work on another anni version? Im not sure but those are different teams right? Or are they the same people?

I don't think so; that would mean less people working on an official instalment and it could suffer because of it. I'd rather have a quality game and no HD remake than a crappy game, but with Tomb Raider 2 with more polish.

mainly the controls and the camera that made the platforming to a nightmare. i think i have learned a lot of new profanity because of it.

I'd agree but considering that Crystal are still releasing the "Lara Croft.." franchise and that still continues with adventures of the old Lara with the old voice actress then they've already kind put themselves in that territory already.

I wouldn't mind a TR2 HD remake that's digital only. The best it can do is bring more people to be aware of the older series and bring more sales.

A little homage as a DLC to either game (I'd lean towards LCTOO, even) would be better at this point than a full remake. I guess it'd receive a lot less hate from the fans, too. :)

Why in the world would they do that? It is not that old game and it still has nice graphics.

Oh God, I remember climbing that pyramid with those poles that go away after a certain amount of time... Let's just say I was frequently swimming in lava :D

I didn't mind that, at least it was a challenge. :D And it's not like we didn't have full control of the camera, you could rotate it any way you wanted.

^ Yeah, but Lara just wouldn't respond to my input, she would always jump ahead instead of bouncing off the wall and onto a pole, no matter what I did xD I still enjoyed it, but it's one of those games you want to replay but you remember a certain level and you just don't want to xD That's why I replayed Legend 11 times, Underworld 5 times, TR2013 2 times and I'm planning on doing it again in a week or so :D But Anni? Played twice, and on that 2nd run, I gave up xD

Wow, I've never encountered such problems.
You know, I lost the count of how many times I played LAU trilogy. But 11 times for Legend - too little, if you ask me. :p

I definitely think TR2 is the best in series and if they went for a remake it's the logical choice. The Maria Dora levels and Venice could look unbelievable with current graphics. I don't think they will do it but if they do a remake I would want an updated TRA/TR2 model Lara and not a TR(2013) model Lara in it.

I think we will have to wait for Crystal Dynamics to screw up and give the franchise to a different development team with conveniently the same initials.
