As Lara Croft Tomb Raider The Angel Of Darkness - the first game in a brand new Lara Croft trilogy - propagates throughout North America, Core Design boss Jeremy Heath-Smith has revealed details on the second adventure currently in production at his Derbyshire-based studios. According to an interview with CVG, Jeremy Heath Smith plans to take Lara Croft back to her roots.

"We don't think we went traditional enough with this game. For the next one, we want to bring the dinosaurs back." Smith told CVG. "Our plan for the trilogy is very much to have one out every 12 months, because we've got them planned out and we're not going to touch the technology, so we're going to play with the storyline - and our plan is to spin the next one in a year. Our plan is to have it, I'm hoping, before June next year. Worst case would be in a year, but hopefully before that."

Smith also spoke on the status on the second of three 'next gen' Lara Croft titles. "All the design and locations are done, lots of sketches have been done... and we have the main character!" Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness made its commercial debut in North America last week for the Sony Playstation 2 after three delayed launches. There's still no word on PC versions or a European release date.
