Crystal Dynamics (of Tomb Raider fame) seems to be very busy as a developer these days. After announcing that they will help on the new Perfect Dark game for Microsoft, a new job listing seems to hint at another project as well.
According to a Linkedin post, the company is looking for a lighting artist with experience in AAA games. Nothing out of the ordinary there. But there’s an emphasis in the posting that the applicant must show they can match the style of the Tomb Raider reboot games.
Crystal Dynamics hasn’t made it a secret that a new Tomb Raider is coming. But most believed that a new game wouldn’t be coming for a while. Considering how many projects they are working on between Marvel’s Avengers and now Perfect Dark. That said, this job posting strongly hints that some work is starting on the next entry in the rebooted franchise.
The rebooted franchise has been a critical and commercial success for almost a decade now. While the last entry, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, didn’t do as well as the others, fans are still eager to see Lara Croft’s next adventure. The new capabilities in development could lead to one of the most intense adventures we’ve seen come from the series.
