Tomb Raider's recent actions reveal a larger project than previously assumed, including a relaunch of the franchise in various multimedia fields and the creation of an interconnected universe between games, television series, and movies.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, an Emmy winner, is expected to direct the Tomb Raider TV series from Amazon, which is developing at Crystal Dynamics. Previously, Amazon announced that it would serve as publisher for the new Tomb Raider video game at the moment.
The Hollywood Reporter's neglect on Amazon's ongoing development of a new film might also include a new game and a Tomb Raider TV series, forming a parallel universe in a Marvel or Star Wars-style endeavor.
According to a source from the trade publication, Tomb Raider is one of Amazon's most extensive multi-media projects, immediately following The Lord of the Rings in terms of scale and capital expenditure.
Due to Amazon's lack of television series and film coverage, we're waiting for any confirmations, but some information might emerge soon. In the meantime, the new Tomb Raider chapter in videogame terms has already been confirmed, and according to some rumors it's already well underway and destined to arrive before Crystal Dynamics' Perfect Dark.
