New Tomb Raider Coming In 2011

According to Eurogamer, Crystal Dynamics is planning to release a Tomb Raider game during the Christmas buying-things period of 2011.

"Wait, I thought there already was a Tomb Raider game coming this summer," you may be saying. Kind of. There is a Lara Croft game, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, coming this summer (see our preview here), but that's not a full Tomb Raider title. The game we're talking about is not a downloadable title, but a full entry into the Lara Croft saga.

According to Eurogamer, the game's subtitle may be Downfall, and it will be released for multiple platforms including PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Plotwise, it's a bit of a reboot, starring a young inexperienced Croft exploring islands off the coast of Japan. So we may get to see the origin of the dual-pistols!

This is all rumor-y right now, but the Predicto-tron 8000, G4's rumor-computer, has calculated that there is a 93 percent chance that this is actually true. More info will be provided when we get it.
