20 Years of an Icon


Ladies and gentlemen, we are well into 2016. Do you know what that means? 20 fantastic years of Lara Croft!!! I am so ecstatic that our beloved adventurer has been raiding tombs for this long and I can't wait to find out what she has in store for us in the future.

Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix will be celebrating the occasion all year with special activities, kicked off with PAX EAST last week. I'll discuss it's happenings in a later post.

“Since its introduction, Tomb Raider has held a significant place in video game history, and further cements that with this milestone,” said Ron Rosenberg, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “We look forward to celebrating with fans, and honoring the iconic Lara Croft with special events, retrospectives, giveaways and other surprises throughout this year of Tomb Raider.”

“Tomb Raider has become a cultural phenomenon over the last 20 years, selling millions of copies worldwide, sparking one of the most successful video game film adaptations in history, and inspiring our amazing fans of all ages,” said Scot Amos, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “It’s incredible to be part of this legend and to see how much the series has evolved over time, and think about what’s yet to come. Here’s to 20 more years of adventure together.”
