Tomb Raider delayed into 2013

by | @AttackFanboy | on May 14, 2012

The Tomb Raider reboot that was set to arrive in Fall 2012 has been delayed, according to Crystal Dynamics. The company sites the additional development time as an opportunity to put the finishing touches and polish on the iconic franchise’s revival.

Square Enix is still planning on showcasing Tomb Raider at E3 in just a few weeks. Darrell Gallagher made the announcement via the game’s Tumblr Blog.

“Our priority now is to make sure we fully deliver the very highest quality game.”“When Crystal Dynamics first set out to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise, there were two goals that we were extremely passionate about. The first was to create a modern Tomb Raider game that would surprise and excite gamers. The second was to make this the best game of our careers, something we would be really proud to be a part of. We truly believe that we have something very special on our hands and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Our priority now is to make sure we fully deliver the very highest quality game. In order to do this, we have decided to move the game’s release date by a few months, from Fall 2012 to the first quarter of 2013.

We’re doing things that are completely new to Tomb Raider in this game and the additional development time will allow us to put the finishing touches into the game and polish it to a level that you deserve. We believe this is the right choice and I guarantee it will be worth the wait. The game is looking amazing and we can’t wait to show it to everyone at E3 in a few weeks.”

No specific release date was given for the game in the announcement.
