View Full Version : Proof Tomb Raider Legend 2 Was Confirmed

22nd May 2007, 02:54
Earlier this year, Eidos' stagnating Tomb Raider franchise pulled a critical turnaround with the release of Tomb Raider: Legend. The first game in the series since 2003's critically disappointing Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness, Legend was also the first game in the series from Legacy of Kain developer Crystal Dynamics.

Eidos has made no secret of its desire to keep the Tomb Raider brand healthy, and the company's product acquisition director Ian Livingstone told GameSpot that part of that agenda means making the Crystal Dynamics-Lara Croft relationship more than a one-game stand. Livingstone confirmed the news while discussing the publisher's plans to mark the Croft character's 10th birthday.

"Tomb Raider 8 is also in development at Crystal Dynamics, but again, I can't say anything about that right now," Livingstone said.

Eidos parent company SCi has previously said that multiple versions of the next Tomb Raider game were in development for release in its 2008 financial year (July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009). The company noted that a PlayStation 3 version was planned, but did not detail other platforms on which the game will appear.

beeh...We get anniversary and we are supposed ot play with it for 2 year till next game? lmao...

Your welcome guys. Yeah at least we know were getting a sequel. And 2 years is a while from now. I think it means this game is going to be alot longer and funner.

This news is so old it should be mummified :scratch:

It says that the game will be released between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009. They have already stated that they are aiming for 2008, so I don't think we will have to wait 2 years.

But, 2 years would give me ample time to acquire a Sony PlayStation 3. Hmmmmmmm...:scratch:

I know it is old. But it's been confirmed at least. :thumbsup:

Yep and Lara will look even more realistic than now. It's like watching/playing a movie said Livingstone in an interview.

Like I said earlier, on another topic, I think most classic Tomb Raider fanatics will be craving for a TR2 remake. On the other hand, there is Legend Two for the newer fans. If CD really wants to make money, I hope they consider a TR2remake. I could imagine the profit they would make :eek: .

To be quite honest i dont want it to be like a movie - i wont be able to get it on PS2!!!

22nd Jul 2007, 16:35
I dont see how this proves anything.
All it says is that a new game is being made. Oviously, we know they're going to make a enw game.

It does'nt say anything about it being a sequel of Legend? :confused: :scratch:

I reckon it is one of those games that aren't prooved just taken into consideration , i dont think they would go and make TRL2 , they would most probally made a different game.;)
