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.
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!'"
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.
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."
