The Embracer Group has seized Deus Ex and Tomb Raider. While many fans believe Tomb Raider had a pretty good home at Square Enix – the modern trilogy was quite successful, after all – there are other opinions as well. Tomb Raider would be better off with the Embracer Group.
Anyway, at least you have plans with Lara Croft. From the current annual report of the Embracer Group, one would see great potential in the brand. Before the acquisition, it was already known that Crystal Dynamics would create a new Tomb Raider.
However, the development of this potential must be shown “not only in sequels, but also in remakes, remasters, spin-offs and transmedia projects within the group”. This does not only apply to Tomb Raider, by the way. The Embracer Group also mentions “Deux Ex, Thief, Legacy of Kain and other brands” in this breath.
