"I absolutely wish we could have spent more time polishing Underworld," says Tomb Raider dev

Posting on the Tomb Raider forums, TR: Underworld creative director Eric Lindstrom has confirmed that he was one of the 30 laid off last week, and has said that he wished Crystal Dynamics could have spent more time working on the game.

"I absolutely wish we could have spent more time polishing Underworld," said Lindstrom. "I take my share of responsibility of aiming so high that we had a reduced ability to spend time on polish."

He also wanted to answer the critics with regard to the 360 exclusive DLC:

"I cut content from the game and it later turned out to be possible to use in DLC, for which I was happy,” he said adding that, "it was a coincidence that we had some candidate content for DLC when the deal was made. I was glad for it, otherwise the stuff I had to cut out would have never seen the light of day."

Eidos said this morning that Lara Croft was due a complete overhaul.
