There has been a lot of talk concerning the remasters of classic Tomb Raider games. This is what Crystal Dynamics has to say. I am adding this to my sidebar in case there are any more questions.
While we always welcome passion and excitement for the Tomb Raider franchise, the remasters in question were initiated and advertised without seeking approval. As such, they were never officially sanctioned. Ensuring fans receive high-quality gaming experiences is at the heart of our mission as a company, which requires all projects to go through proper channels. We are thrilled about the future of Tomb Raider, and cannot thank fans enough for their continued support and excitement for the brand.
