Tomb Raider remake gossip continues

Tuesday 30 May 2006
Speculation is continuing that Eidos is working on a remake of the original Tomb Raider game to be released to coincide with the series' ten year anniversary.

We first reported that a 'special edition' Tomb Raider was part of Eidos' 2006 plans last year, when a new Tomb Raider game was mentioned as part of a financial report from the company.

Even though Eidos hasn't officially announced details of the game, speculation about it has returned as has received an email from a source at the UK publisher claiming that work on the remake is ongoing.

The insider said that the remake will be made for PSP and PS2 and will feature "improved graphics, new moves, the lot!" It was also mentioned the Eidos has been considering the inclusion of a remake of Tomb Raider 2 in the 'special edition' but this is dependent on the amount of time available.

The original Tomb Raider was released in November 1996, so Eidos still has a few months to go if the 'special edition' is to be launched exactly 10 years on. We're currently trying to contact Eidos for an official comment, so we'll hopefully have something for you shortly.
