Hello to everyone! Meagan is here and I’m so excited to make this video because it feels like it’s been forever since our last conversation with the Tomb Raider. That’s why we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Tomb Raider this year, it’s truly mind-blowing because it feels just like yesterday, it’s great like winning the Guinness World Records for the 20th anniversary and letting fans explore Croft Manor in VR. we were doing things. We have some exciting things to share about the 25th anniversary celebrations, but first I’d like to introduce you to some of the team members you may not have met yet, starting with our new community and our social media manager Neha!
Hello to you Neha!
Hello Tomb Raider fans! It’s nice to introduce myself a little bit officially so you’ll know who’s behind the last thoughts on the TR Twitter account! I’m Neha, the new Community and Social Media manager at Crystal Dynamics, and I’m working with Meagan on everything related to Tomb Raider. I first met Lara when I started playing a demo for Tomb Raider II in the early PlayStation days. As a little girl I had Lara’s sense of adventure and now I feel happy to be part of her journey.
25 years is a very important milestone, so looking back at the legacy of the Tomb Raider, we really want to celebrate with the community. Please look forward to year-round community celebrations such as fan art and cosplay events, interviews, live streams, and some special extras I don’t want to spoil. We base each month on a different game, first, the classic 1996 Tomb Raider that started it all. Celebrations officially begin in the first week of February. We want you to enjoy the whole year and celebrate with us, so we hope to see you online!
Now I’d like to introduce you to our new Chief Executive of the Tomb Raider series – Dallas Dickinson! He’s actually been on the team for a while, but this is his public debut!
Hi! I’m Dallas Dickinson, executive producer of everything related to Tomb Raider at Crystal Dynamics. I’ve been at Crystal for over a year now, but it was the first time I got the chance to connect with you all! I’ve been a Tomb Raider fan since the mid-1990s, when I walked into a friend’s apartment just to see what this new PlayStation thing was all about. I spent the rest of the day climbing, jumping, shooting, solving puzzles, turning around (back again) – eventually he had to fire me. Since then, Lara Croft has settled in our culture as one of the most beloved action heroes of the game world. He became a global pop culture icon thanks to toys, comics, and movies that introduced him to the larger and wider audience. Giving my kids and the next generation of gamers the opportunity to develop this legacy has made it a dream come true to join Crystal Dynamics. With all the upcoming Tomb Raider 25 years of celebration events, there is clearly a lot to get excited about. As we celebrate the past this year, we wanted to give you an idea of what the franchise’s future looks like.
For this, I’ll hand you over to Will Kerslake, who may be familiar to some of you from his 10 years of work on Tomb Raider at Crystal Dynamics! Intention?
Thanks Dallas! I’m Will Kerslake, Game Manager of the Tomb Raider series at Crystal Dynamics. Over the years at Crystal, I have had the opportunity to work on a number of games starring Lara Croft – Temple of Osiris, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Baba Yaga, Blood Ties, and more. I am incredibly honored to be a part of Lara’s ongoing legacy. We have big goals for the future of Tomb Raider. Our original trilogy from 2013 told the story of Lara Croft’s early days as a survivor, hero, and ultimately the Tomb Raider. Classic games had an experienced and confident adventurer, traveling the world, unraveling secrets, often standing alone against terrifying consequences. We envision the future of the Tomb Raider in all its forms as unfolding beyond these established adventures, telling stories based on the breadth of both Core Design and Crystal Dynamics games, and working to consolidate these timelines. With the extensive history of the Tomb Raider, this is no easy task! We want everyone to be patient while going through the development process. We have no plans for a major game announcement in the near future.
However, Lara is well-known in entertainment venues and we have some exciting news to share before signing up – let’s get back to Meagan for that!
Thanks Will! There’s a lot to get excited about in the 25-year history of the Tomb Raider, so it’s great to give you an idea of where we’re planning to buy the franchise. Well, we continue. If you’ve missed the super exciting news that broke Netflix, Legendary Television and dj2 Entertainment are coming together in a new Tomb Raider animated series. This is indeed one of the best ways to start our TR25 celebrations. The series will be selected after the events of the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy and expand on Lara’s adventures as the newly minted Tomb Raider. If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting almost 15 years since the original Tomb Raider: Revised web series to see Lara reimagined, so this is incredibly exciting. That’s all for now, but be sure to check back on February 1 when we officially launch our TR25 celebrations, and we’ll be doing great things throughout the year, such as great fan exhibitions, nostalgic content, and lots of surprises.
Thanks everyone for watching and we hope you have a great start to 2021 and see you soon!
