PC Gamer - This video of the next Tomb Raider game caused some concern. Is that creepy guy at 2m20s trying to rape Lara Croft? Anyone wondering was given their answer by executive producer Ron Rosenberg, who told Kotaku that these scavengers do “try to rape her”.
Developer Crystal Dynamics released a statement saying he mis-spoke, and that sexual assault is not a theme at any point. But it didn’t seem to persuade many – the barrage of opinion pieces condemning the inclusion of attempted rape in a videogame barely slowed.
