22 October 2017Tomb Raider’s Creative Director Leaves Crystal Dynamics
The Tomb Raider franchise has come a long way over the past few years, thanks to the awesome 2013 reboot, as well as the 2015 adventure Rise of the Tomb Raider that followed shortly thereafter. Now, while we’re questioning the future of the franchise, Crystal Dynamic has lost one of its key team members.
Ian Milham, who served on Crystal Dynamics as the creative director for the series, has departed to go work on a new adventure, according to his Twitter page.
“Hi friends!” he noted. “An announcement: last week was my last at Crystal Dynamics, I’ve joined old friends at @OutpostGamesInc! I’m now Creative Director on @playsosgame! I’m in love with the potential and freshness of it.”
He also added, “Don’t infer anything about CD or Tomb Raider based on this. They’ve been awesome and people should be very excited by what’s coming. This was a chance to team up with old friends again on something exciting (and cut my commute from an hour to 10 minutes).”
22 October 2017Tomb Raider Suite Project Wraps Up
So that's a wrap at Abbey Road. I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the production staff involved with the recording of The Tomb Raider Suite, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Metro Voices. Everyone did a fantastic job and it was a truly magical experience to be surrounded by such an incredible group of professionals. Thank you also to all the fans who attended to share this experience with me and of course to our sponsors who have been more than generous with their support for the project. Finally I would like to thank Abbey Road for their hospitality and professionalism during the recording. I sincerely hope I can return to their studios again some day soon. I still haven't quite 'landed' after this extraordinary experience. Some much needed sleep is in order. Thank you once again everyone for making this happen. Will be posting further updates soon once I've had a chance to recuperate.

20 September 2017Reactions To The Tomb Raider Trailer
The brand-new, official trailer for Tomb Raider just dropped from Warner Bros., so of course social media is buzzing with reactions and opinions from all corners of the Tomb Raider fandom. Here’s a short breakdown of what we’ve learned so far, and some of the opinions from the team at Survivor Reborn. 1) Action will be front and centre. It wouldn’t be Tomb Raider without falling debris, falls into fathomless depths, explosions, gunfights, and bucket-loads of peril – and the trailer seems to imply that the movie will tick all of these boxes and more.
