Tomb Raider delayed until first quarter 2013

Submitted by on Monday, 14 May 2012No Comment

Tomb Raider has been delayed until the first quarter of 2013, Crystal Dynamics announced on the official forums. The highly anticipated game now joins BioShock Infinite as titles that will miss their original fall 2012 release date. But hey, at least 2013 is shaping up to be a fantastic year, right?

Unlike BioShock Infinite, though, Crystal Dynamics plans to show off Tomb Raider at E3 this year. With the extra few months of development time, the team plans to “put the finishing touches into the game and polish it to a level that you deserve.” To soften the blow of the announcement, they’ve also released a new screenshot for the game, titled “The Reach.”

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.
