Tomb Raider creator heading up new Crystal Dynamics game

Toby Gard, creator of one of the most iconic videogame franchises of the nineties, has been named as lead designer on Crystal Dynamics’ latest, unannounced title. The Tomb Raider creator revealed all on his LinkedIn profile, while Crystal Dynamics itself has been sniffing around for a senior art director on a “Triple A” videogame.

All signs point to yet another Lara Croft game, although personally I hope to see something different. Crystal Dynamics is pretty much known only for Lara and let’s face it, the old girl’s gone off the rails a bit. Let’s have a new Legacy of Kain … or a return to the Pandemonium series. Anything but Lara.
