Now Playing: Is Tomb Raider As Good As You Remember? | Nostalgia Trip

Crystal Dynamics was acquired by Embracer Group from Square Enix back in May. Following news of the sale, Crystal Dynamics then announced the development of a new Tomb Raider at the State of Unreal event. As the press release reiterates, Tomb Raider wil be made using Unreal Engine 5 and is still in early development.

"Crystal Dynamics has an extraordinary opportunity following our acquisition by Embracer to redefine what a publishing relationship is for Tomb Raider," said Crystal Dynamics head of studio Scot Amos. "Transformative is what we’re looking for, and with Amazon Games, we found a team that shares our creative vision, ambitions, and values for a Lara Croft universe across the spectrum of possibilities."

Amazon previously worked on MMORPGs New World and Lost Ark, making Tomb Raider the first single-player narrative game Amazon will publish.

Crystal Dynamics is also co-developing a Perfect Dark reboot with Microsoft studio The Initiative. The game was first announced in 2020, and The Initiative has undergone a few turbulent staffing shakeups.

There's no release announced for the new Tomb Raider or Perfect Dark yet.
