Rumor: New Tomb Raider delayed to 2013

German videogamemagazine Gamestrend claims to have a source at Square Enix who told them that the new Tomb Raider game isn't going to be released in 2012 anymore. They say the game is slated for a 2013 release. The main reason, according to the magazine, is that Crystal Dynamic faced a lot of problems with the new engine and cannot guarantee a 2012 release anymore. (Crystal Dynamics, PC, PS3, Square Enix, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

Perhaps they're aiming to release it as a launchtitle...
... for when the next-gen consoles hit the market, presumably late this year or early next year!?

I don't think they will make it a launchtitle for nex gen , they will sell a lot more on the current gen then on the releas of the next gen ,That would be stupid of them.
Maybe just for the WII U because it will launche first. and they do the same as they did with tomb raider Legend they released on the ps2/xbox/GC.and and later for the 360 which launched first .

Uncharted is coming out in 2012 but for the Vita

I hope not. I mean theres still a good 3/4ths of a year before this game is out. Why delay so early in the year if its not out until the end of the year anyway?

I really hope it doesn't get delayed because this is one of my most anticipated games.

Honestly though I wish I could say otherwise I find this to be quite plausible.

Think about it what is the one thing you can count on Square-Enix to do with their videogames?

Delay Them!

Sadly without a single exception in the last few years any game they haven't delayed the release of ends of being god awful. Square used to be one of my favorite video game publishers. Squeenix? not so much. :(

What is more likely to happen though is a double release. Say not so hypothetically Xbox720? PS4? release fall 2013? They can re-release a game of the year style game with updated (Graphics, reworked missions, improved controls)

Hopefully we won't be looking at a deliberately above average game so they can "improve" it for the next batch of consoles.

They can take their time. I want this game to be as good as possible. Really wanting this one.

WTF....

Gotta be a stupid rumour. When this was first announced they said 'Fall 2011'. Then at E3 they said 'Fall 2012'. Now everywhere I look I'm reading Q3 or September 2012. No way in hell I'd believe 2013.
itsallgud  +   958d ago
probably having trouble getting the ps3 to keep up with the fidelity of xbox version. the same thing happened with the first grandtheft auto on ps3.
Disccordia  +   957d ago
The engine had no problems running dues ex on ps3
Reborn  +   958d ago
Maybe a delay to some point later in 2012, but 2013?

That would suck. :(

Damn hope this ain't true this game looks very promising. Looking forward to playing this
