Lucasarts has announced it has hired Tomb Raider’s former creative and franchise director Tim Longo.
The ex-Crystal Dynamics man will serve as creative director on an unannounced project, the firm told Gamasutra.
Longo worked with Lucasarts previously on titled such as Star Wars: Starfighter and Jedi Starfighter as the games’ lead designer, and he was also Star Wars: Republic Commando’s creative director. He was even a playtester for X-Wing vs TIE fighter back in the late 90s.
A company statement said it was “thrilled to welcome him back to the Lucasarts family.”
Longo’s last Tomb Raider projects were Underworld and Anniversary.
