Speaking to Times Online, Eidos chief financial officer Robert Brent says that the next Tomb Raider game will see a reboot for the franchise, similar in scale to that of The Dark Knight.
“We need to look at everything, as we develop the next game,” he said.
“Look at how Batman changed successfully, from the rather sad character of the Michael Keaton era to the noir style of The Dark Knight.”
Late last week, Eidos lowered its yearly financial expectations due to poor sales of “triple A products” and developer Crystal Dynamics laid off 30 in wake of poor Tomb Raider: Underworld performance.
