Tomb Raider reboot writer bids farewell

Rise of the Tomb RaiderRhianna Pratchett, who wrote the stories for both Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider has bid farewell to both Lara Croft and Crystal Dynamics.

On Twitter, Rhianna Pratchett made her announcement saying “So, I’m packing up my climbing axe plus a little venison jerky for the road, and bidding a fond farewell to Lara. Onwards to new adventures! But, I like to think we did some good things. Maybe shifted the gaming landscape a wee bit. And that feels damn good.”

It’s unknown where Rhianna may go next, or what adventures lay ahead. Could it be a book or perhaps another video game? Time will surely tell. We do know that another Tomb Raider adventure is in the works, which was leaked via a photo taken on a subway train last year. Perhaps she wrote this story to completion and will be credited with that adventure too.

I can’t speak for Rise of the Tomb Raider but I certainly enjoyed the 2012 reboot and its remastered release on current platforms. We at 4-One Gaming would like to wish Rhianna all the best in the future going forward.
