SCi-Eidos confirms 10th anniversary Tomb Raider remake


Game not cancelled as suggested by Core Design

SCi-Eidos has confirmed that a remake of the original Tomb Raider is on the way to celebrate the game's 10th anniversary - despite suggestions from Core Design that it had been cancelled. News of the remake came to light after a video of the game in action appeared on the Internet.

A statement posted on the Core Design website yesterday reads: “The video of Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition that appeared on certain sites was an unauthorised release of an internal presentation of a game that was being developed by Core Design until very recently. It was running on PSP and used a Core-developed engine. However, following a recent review this project has been officially cancelled by SCi.”

But that's not the case, according to SCi-Eidos, which has since issued its own statement confirming that Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition is currently in development for PC, PSP and PS2. “Our 10th Anniversary Edition of Tomb Raider is a one-off title to celebrate both Lara and Tomb Raider,” said SCi-Eidos brand manager Larry Sparks.

The game is being developed by Crystal Dynamics, the studio behind Lara's latest adventure, Tomb Raider: Legend. A release date has yet to be announced.
