'Tomb Raider' (ALL) Developer Poaches 'God Of War' (ALL) Director

by Rainier on March 2, 2012 @ 1:25 p.m. PST

Armed with only the raw instincts and physical ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Tomb Raider delivers an intense and gritty story into the origins of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor.

After a brutal storm destroys the boat she was travelling on, a frightened young woman is left washed ashore on an unknown beach. On her own but not alone she has only one goal, to survive.

Here begins the first adventure for a young and inexperienced Lara Croft in a story which charts the journey of an ordinary woman who finds out just how far she must go in order to stay alive.

Evade, outsmart, track and kill the mysterious enemies that hunt you as prey.

Best known for his work on the God of War series where he served as director on God of War, Writer/Director for God of War 2, creative director for Chains of Olympus and story creator for Ghost of Sparta. Since leaving Sony, Cory has worked on a variety of projects around the industry as a consultant, designer, and writer.

He joins an expanding cast of industry talent at the San Francisco-based studio, who between them are working on the upcoming reimagining of Tomb Raider and a yet to be announced new title.

“Crystal has pulled together some of the best teams in the industry to deliver against upcoming projects and future IP,” says Darrell Gallagher, head of studio. “Cory's heritage in building industry-defining action adventure titles, together with our focus on delivering quality character-driven blockbuster entertainment, makes Cory a tremendously exciting addition to the team."
