Today Crystal Dynamics revealed that Cory Barlog has joined the team. He will be working on the new Tomb Raider in addition to a “yet to be announced new title.”
“Crystal has pulled together some of the best teams in the industry to deliver against upcoming projects and future IP,” said Darrell Gallagher, head of studio.
“Cory’s heritage in building industry defining action adventure titles, together with our focus on delivering quality character driven blockbuster entertainment makes Cory a tremendously exciting addition to the team.”
Gallagher is of course referring to Barlog’s work as writer for numerous titles in the God of War series.
The reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise is hitting shelves this autumn, showcasing a more vulnerable Lara, forced to endure the mental and physical tortures that make her the strong character seen in other Tomb Raider titles.
