Crystal Dynamics: new game to be announced soon per CV

By Dave Cook, Thursday, 2 May 2013 10:47 GMT

Crystal Dynamics has been long-rumoured as working on a reboot of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, but we may find out either way soon, according to the LinkedIn profile of the studio’s lead principal artist Matt McCulloch.

Internet sleuth Superannuation discovered some interesting lines on McCulloch’s profile that read, “Creating wildly cool environments for a soon to be announced title for Crystal Dynamics.”

Under his job descriptor he added, “Working closely with all disciplines to create unique, efficient and malleable levels. more on that to come…”

Meanwhile, the Crystal Dynamics career site has posted several jobs at its Redwood City studio, calling on candidates to apply, “To be part of creating the foundation for a brand new AAA game.”

If the game is ‘brand new’ then a Soul Reaver reboot is probably off the table. It seems a safer net would be Square’s recently-revealed new IP Murdered: Soul Suspect. The project’s developer is currently still under wraps, so it could be Crystal Dynamics Redwood.

E3 is next month and Tomb Raider is out of the gate, so the logical conclusion is that whatever this project is, it will be getting revealed at the show. We don’t know for certain though so treat all of this as rumour for now.

What do you think it is? Let us know below.

Cheers OXM.
