A Crystal Dynamics job ad appears to have outed a new IP that the company responsible for the Tomb Raider reboot due out next year is working on. Little is known about this apparent IP but it will be a “…third-person action adventure”, it seems.
Crystal Dynamics is seeking an Animation Engineer to collaborate with industry leading animators and programmers to create a cutting edge, original IP. You will join a talented game team to develop and iterate on animation systems and tools pipelines for engine systems on third-person action adventure AAA titles.
This is another good news/bad news scenario. We’re never keen on shying away from new IPs, especially from a studio like Crystal Dynamics, but it would mean that Soul Reaver fans will likely have to wait a while longer before getting another addition to the tale of Kane and Raziel (mostly Raziel…please?). Unless, that is, the devs have managed to keep development on a new Soul Reaver a very well-kept secret. Or if another studio is working on it but Square Enix wouldn’t be that silly, would they?
