Square Enix wants to remove new Tomb Raider script from the internet
It is not today that Square Enix revealed to be working on a new Tomb Raider. The project is apparently going well, to the point where the company starts to hire some actors to participate in the game recording lines and doing motion captures. However, she didn’t know that she would end up having a problem because of it.
According to reports that are on the network, both the Japanese company and Crystal Dynamics had to call their lawyers recently because of the script for this next project. It seems, he ended up appearing on the Sacred Symbols podcastand because of that, presenter Colin Moriarty revealed that he needed to remove this content (which we will mention at the end of this news, after the video) from the Web.
Mention of the texts also happened on Patreon, and the site’s team contacted him to have the podcast episode removed, claiming that he could suffer some sanctions on the platform itself. That way, any audio related to Lara Croft’s next title needs to be gone as soon as possible.
Still related to the matter, the podcast host mentioned that he did nothing wrong by not stealing the information (he claims to have taken such data from an insider), and after editing the content he will keep the podcast on both Patreon and on YouTube for believing I have done nothing wrong. By the way, we will mention what he commented after the video of the podcast in question (already without the excerpt under the game), so in case you want to avoid spoilers DO NOT PROCEED WITH READING.
In the podcast in question, it was mentioned that Lara Croft’s main objective in this new game is to save the world with the help of several adventurers who are training under his tutelage. In this way, it would be possible to resort to some cooperative mechanics, but at this point it is not possible to predict whether this concerns two players or just the protagonist and one of her assistants.
Another point is that Lara you will likely pair up with a woman over the course of your adventure. In view of the two companies’ move so that all this content disappears from the network, it is very likely that such information is true or very close to what will be worked on in the final version of the title.
It is worth remembering that the new Tomb Raider will be made with the help of Unreal Engine 5, and so far has not had its release date officially announced.
