New Tomb Raider coming – is a reboot on the cards?

Square Enix has confirmed that a new Tomb Raider game is, well, it’s in existence. That’s about it.

Although details are pretty thin on the ground at the moment, it looks like magazine Game Informer will have the full scoop when the next issue is released on December 11th.

The only thing we have to work with until then is this picture – a young looking Lara in need of a good scrub – and a brief quote from Crystal Dynamics’ Head of Studio, Darrell Gallagher who says to, “Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider“.

Of course, this all points towards a reboot for the series – an obvious choice given the franchises stagnation in recent years.

What do you think? You like the new look Lara or are Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics fuc*ing with your proverbial cabbage patch?

Personally, I think the Tomb Raider franchise has needed a keep up the arse for a few years now and this new look Lara might just provide said kick.
