Samantha Wallschlaeger has been appointed Lead Writer at Crystal Dynamics and is working on the next Tomb Raider video-game. The former writer on Star Wars The Old Republic and Mass Effect: Andromeda confirmed her role on Twitter last year and invited talent to join her on the future of Tomb Raider.

Since Crystal Dynamics announced they are developing a new Tomb Raider video-game powered by Unreal Engine 5 the studio has continued to court leading industry talent to help build out the future of Lara Croft. One such hire was Belinda Garcia, who joined the studio as Game Writer and Narrative Designer alongside former Days Gone Game Director Jeff Ross.

Embracer Group and Amazon Games recently reached an agreement under which Crystal Dynamics will develop a new multiplatform Tomb Raider title, with Amazon Games providing full support and publishing the game globally. The as-yet-untitled new Tomb Raider game is a single-player, narrative-driven adventure that continues Lara Croft's story in the Tomb Raider series.
