According to the chaps at Eurogamer, developer Crystal Dynamics is in the process of working on the next major entry in the Tomb Raider franchise, which should be in stores by Christmas 2011.
The site claims that the sequel will be released on PS3, PC and 360 platforms, though was unable to confirm whether or not it would be subtitled ‘Downfall’ as previously rumored.
Furthermore, the report states Crystal Dynamics is currently split in to two teams; a small group of folks who are working on Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and a second, larger team focused on the core Tomb Raider titles.
Lastly, Eurogamer’s source also confirmed that the leaked concept art and documents (which told of a reboot of the franchise detailing the exploits of a young Lara Croft) that cropped up last July were indeed the real deal, and pertains to the new Tomb Raider game.
More as it breaks.

Great news. I'm a longtime TR fan. A reboot could be just what the series needs.

TR died with the psone, they should stop making these appauling games, especialy after the last TR on ps3! Thumbs down for me, even if I was a huge TR fan!

A young Lara Croft? Why do they feel the need to shrink her boobs more with each game?

It needs to be a he11 of a lot longer, and no holding back content to milk their loyal fans of their cash. It just pi55es them off, the last game was totally bereft of any extras. No costume changes, no timed challenges. I want a reason to play the game for a second time. or even a third.
