Eidos President Ian Livingstone briefly loitered around the subject of Tomb Raider 9 during a recent interview with journalists while attending the Golden Cursor Animation Awards. The game is currently being developed by U.S. studio Crystal Dynamics and Ian Livingstone is undeniably optimistic.

"The next Tomb Raider, I think, will surprise a lot of people and reinvigorate the franchise. There are some remarkable things we're doing in the next Tomb Raider to make you say, 'Oh Lara, I love you so much!'"

Addressing comparisons between Uncharted and Tomb Raider, Livingstone says: "I think it's not quite correct to compare Drake's Fortune and Tomb Raider. Sure, they're single player character-based action games, but Uncharted is all based on one island and it's focused around combat, whereas Tomb Raider is not focused on combat; it's about puzzles, exploration, and discovery, and it goes to a lot more regions than one island.

"I think Uncharted, for me, is more like Gears of War than Tomb Raider. It's a great game, but I think Tomb Raider is a different league, and an equally, if not better, game than Uncharted to my mind."
