Tomb Raider (2013) and Rise of the Tomb Raider writer, Rhianna Pratchett, leaves Crystal Dynamics. Rhianna tweeted the news on January 3 in pursuit of new adventures.
So, I’m packing up my climbing axe plus a little venison jerky for the road, and bidding a fond farewell to Lara. Onwards to new adventures!

I have to say, this news kind of sucks. I loved the 2013 reboot and I played the sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, multiple times. The story was not as strong as the reboot, but it setup a continuation involving the organization of Trinity.
That said, I was hoping Rhianna would tie it all together. Best wishes to Rhianna, and looking forward to whomever the new, future writer of Crystal Dynamics will be, as well as the next entry in the Tomb Raider franchise.
