Crystal Dynamics Focusing On Lara Reboot, Not Returning To Guardian of Light

Remember that charming co-op take on Tomb Raider? Well it looks like Crystal Dynamics has no intention of returning to the style seen in Guardian of Light, as the team is now fully committed to continuing the origin story of Lara set up by their recently released Tomb Raider reboot.

In an interview with OXM, creative director Noah Hughes explained:

Guardian was a great opportunity to explore things that we may not have done in the pillar franchise titles, but in that case it was co-op. There are no plans to do anything in that series but it was a great opportunity to do something a little bit outside of the core.

With regard to what's next for the studio and Lara, Hughes went on to add, “Without knowing exactly what adventures she’s going on, our intent is to carry forward from here. Other than a brief detour into her origins, we kind of like the idea of taking her story forward from this point.”
