Lara Croft Reborn

Game Informer has just revealed their January cover and it is, as has been predicted, Tomb Raider. But not just any Tomb Raider: Game Informer is reporting (and confirmed by a Square Enix press release) that the next game will be a reboot of the entire franchise.

The origin story is going to go back to Lara’s youth, showing a much less experienced and considerably more vulnerable adventurer.

Time will tell if this turns out to be everything Crystal Dynamics hopes it will be, but it’s a curious move considering how much effort they put into reviving the brand with the Legend trilogy and Guardian of Light, which was released just a few months ago. Now they’re going to tear all that down and start over? Curiouser and curiouser…
