Tomb Raider remake alive and kicking
Despite rumours last week suggesting that Eidos Interactive had axed development of a Tomb Raider remake for the PSP, dubbed Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition, it appears rumours of retro-Lara's demise were somewhat exaggerated, even if previous developer Core Design has now passed from SCI to Rebellion. In fact whilst Core are obviously no longer the team behind the remake, the publisher have today confirmed that the title is also en route for the PS2 and the PC, in addition to Sony's Playstation Portable.
"Our 10th Anniversary Edition of Tomb Raider is a one-off title to celebrate both Lara and Tomb Raider," beamed Larry Sparks. "It will appeal not only to the loyal fans of the Tomb Raider series but will also attract a totally new audience."
Critics and gamers were united in shock at the announcement of the cancellation, many assuming that the remake's success on the PSP was pre-assured in the wake of the latest Tomb Raider's retail victories. In fact, it appears the confusion probably relates to the sale of Core, and the passing of this project to another developer. We'll keep you posted on this.
