Unfortunate news coming out of the Eidos camp regarding the Tomb Raider reboot that was announced at last years E3. It would appear that the release has now been delayed until sometime in 2013. I for one am a little disappointed by this news, but I whole heartedly will continue to support the dev team in this daunting endeavor and will sacrifice wait time for a much better game. Below you can read the announcement directly from the Edios team
A Message to the Tomb Raider Community
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.
So we have to wait a little longer to play the game, but I for one cannot wait to see what they will have in store for us in the coming few months.
In other news, I was recently afforded the opportunity to snag a pair of the Gunnar optics gaming eyewear. I had been debating back and forth for weeks on buying them and recently found a pair for a great price at best buy. I plan to have a review up on them by this weekend after I run them through some tests. so be sure to stay tuned for that. As well as a few more posts and things throughout the week
