KARIMA ADEBIBE TO HANG UP HER BOOTS?

[ December 22nd 2007 ]

Official Playstation Magazine has hinted that real-life Lara Croft model Karima Adebibe may be retiring her trademark pistols and bringing to an end her tenure as Eidos' global spokeswoman for Tomb Raider.

The magazine offers readers a tantalising teaser for January's issue: "In the meantime our mouse hands must return to scouring Google Image Search's outer reaches in a bid to discover - and then offer to manage - the next real-life Lara before Eidos does."

Official Playstation Magazine also promises to showcase Lara Croft in Tomb Raider Underworld on the Playstation 3 in the January issue, having "a man in Mexico for the world exclusive unveiling" which took place end of November.

Karima Adebibe was anointed as Lara Croft in 2005 to help promote Tomb Raider Legend and Tomb Raider Anniversary. The British model followed in the footsteps of a string of beauties including Jill de Jong, Lucy Clarkson, Lara Weller, Nell McAndrew, Rhona Mitra, Ellen Rocce and Vanessa Demouy.

The Eidos camp are out for Christmas, which means the official announcement of Tomb Raider Underworld and any confirmation of a new Lara Croft model isn't now expected until the New Year.

In the meantime, please join the good folks from Tomb Raider Forums who are wildly speculating on who - if anyone - they'd like to see replace Karima Adebibe as the new real-life Lara Croft model.
