The New official Owners Of The “Tomb Raider” are Crystal Dynamics

Crystal Dynamics officially announced its ownership of Tomb Raider four months after it acquired from Embracer Group, a sleeper videogame giant.

The Tomb Raider gaming series was not created by Crystal Dynamics games because it is actually designed by a famous Video Gaming Company named “Core Desing” which is located in Derby. Crystal Dynamics also worked for The Tomb Raider game series including Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider 2013 reboot, and also Rise of the Tomb Raider Crystal Dynamics. Square Enix gave the series to Eidos Montreal for Shadow of the Tomb Raider in 2018. However, Embracer now owns the entire collection and is officially putting it back in place.

Crystal Dynamics announced on their website and social media that they are excited about the whole situation and that they are now the official owners of some famous Game series franchises like The Tomb Raider Games and Legacy of kain. Also, they informed that now all related data to these games are now in the control of Crystal dynamics and the team.

Eidos Montreal stated that it also “is now the owner” of the games it has developed, such as the Deus Ex or Thief games. Both messages are intended to notify, as required by law, of any changes to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies for all affected games. This will allow you to switch your Square Enix partner in these legal agreements from Square Enix or Crystal Dynamics to Eidos Montreal.

Crystal Dynamics and Tomb Raider were already together but now it’s a different feeling to watch Tomb Raider on its way to its rightful place. It is still unclear if this will lead to better games, but Crystal Dynamics announced that it was working on a new Tomb Raider, in Unreal Engine 5.

If we can convince Eidos Montreal, everything will be fine once more. Embracer Group has acquired Square Enix’s former studios Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Montreal, and Tomb Raider. The two announced that they now have full control over their game series, including Legacy of Kain, and Deus Ex.

In late August, the $300m deal was closed. This resulted in Square Enix Montreal, Eidos Montreal, and Crystal Dynamics becoming part of Embracer. The company announced in May that it is interested in sequels, remakes, and spin-offs to complement the rich properties of the studios. Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal have taken control of all the game’s data and controllers. Both studios have updated their Privacy Notice and Terms of Service (via VGC), to highlight some of their most important assets.

“We are thrilled to inform you that Crystal Dynamics took control of several franchises, including Tomb Raider or Legacy of Kain, from Square Enix Limited,” reads the statement of the California-based studio. stated that the Montreal-based developer said, “As we’ve to leave Square Enix Ltd. and joined Embracer Group,”. The big change is that Eidos-Montreal or its affiliates now own the games it has developed, such as Deus Ex and Thief, and are the controllers of data derived from various gameplay metrics.

The studios did not mention the latest Disney-licensed action title, Marvel’s Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Since the agreement was completed, neither party has commented. According to reports, ” Embracer” is in the middle of a deal with Marvel. This agreement will go well beyond Avengers.” So we’ll have to wait and see what happens next. Crystal Dynamics is responsible for a variety of games in this series. They took over the development of the franchise in 2003 with Tomb Raider Legends.

Crystal Dynamics has been responsible for the Survivor trilogy’s first two entries: Tomb Raider (2013), and Rise of the Tomb Raider in 2015. Lara Croft is not the only one who knows about the Legacy of Kain or Geoxfranchises.

The development of the previous Tomb Raider games took 3 years. With that in mind, along with the Perfect Dark rumored release window the next Tomb Raider title might not be released until 2025 to 26. Although the next Tomb Raider adventure is still far off, fans should be excited that there will soon be a game in the iconic series of globe-trotting adventures.

The release date and release window for the next Tomb Raider game are not set. Crystal Dynamics stated that Unreal Engine 5 development had only just begun, which indicates that the game will not be completed for at least a few more years. It is possible that this game will not arrive before 2025, given the uncertainty surrounding AAA game development in the best of times.

Core Design, the creator of Tomb Raider has not been involved in the series since 2003’s badly received Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness. Crystal Dynamics has handled the main series games, though several studios have produced spin-offs or ports. The Square Enix subsidiary is handling the next game. It is also partnering up with The Initiative to create a Perfect Dark restart.

Crystal Dynamics Unreal Engine 5

The most important and surprising information revealed in the Tomb Raider video announcement is that the game’s being built on the Unreal Engine 5.

Crystal Dynamic’s Foundation Engine is the game engine used in recent Tomb Raider games, such as Rise of the Tomb Raider or Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Unreal Engine 5 offers unique opportunities that could significantly improve the visual fidelity, UI, and gameplay systems for the new Tomb Raider games.
It is worth noting that director Jeff Ross declared that he was joining Crystal Dynamics as design chief the same day as the Tomb Raider news. It’s not known if he will be working on Lara Croft’s next adventure or another game from the studio.

Crystal Dynamics is proud to have been a part of the Unreal Engine 5 launch. “Crystal Dynamics is proud to be a part of the launch of Unreal Engine 5,” said Dallas Dickinson (general manager of the Tomb Raider franchise at Crystal Dynamics).
