Crystal Dynamics global brand director Karl Stewart has said the developer is yet to cast a voice actress for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, and that official merchandise is being considered.

Answering fan questions on Twitter, Stewart said the Crystal Dynamics team is still searching for the perfect voice.

“Still on the lookout. She’s out there, I know it,” he tweeted, before explicitly confirming that previous incumbent Keeley Hawes would not be reprising her role.

While unable to give details, Stewart virtually promised official merchandise to accompany the upcoming game, urging fans to “watch this space”, and when asked about special editions, agreed that a figurine was not a bad idea.

Finally, Stewart confirmed that a popular Lara Croft image was simply a test and not part of any official release.

    Hm, well. She was excellent in The Guardian of Light, but since they are going for a younger Lara they might want someone with a younger voice?

    Dare they break with the tradition of Lara Croft: Posh totty?
    Probably get someone off some generic californian soap to do v.o. Yay remakes/re-boots!

    Since they’re going for a realistic direction, I suppose they need to find an actress that can deliver a more natural and everyday-Jane kind of performance.

    Blerk – Let me rephrase my last statement.

    *I WILL BOYCOTT THIS GAME IF CHERYL COLE OR BONO VOICES LARA CROFT.*

    @9 Nice idea but how many everyday-Janes would get stranded on a desert island following a yacht excursion?

    Maybe they should be getting Ellen MacArthur in the mix?

    Given Lara’s age, they’ll obviously be looking for someone shrill and irritating, possibly a bit emo. Mobile phone skills a must.

    @13, so Lara is now an Aussie? That’s cool.

    They should ditch Lara and just have Claudia Black in it. Claudia Black Raider. Oh, hang on….!
