Writing on the Square Enix blog recently, Crystal Dynamics community manager Meagan Marie announced that the developer is working on a new intellectual property. Unfortunately, no further specifics were offered.

"2012 will prove to be a very exciting year for Crystal Dynamics, more so than any in recent memory," Marie wrote. "Not only will our team be eating, sleeping, and breathing Tomb Raider, but we'll also be hard at work preparing to reveal exciting new intellectual property to the world."

As for the game Crystal Dynamics is openly working on, Tomb Raider is pegged to arrive on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this fall. An origin story, the game will tell the tale of how Lara Croft came to be the crafty, nimble adventurer at the center of previous franchise games.
