God Of War Vet Cory Barlog To Help With Tomb Raider

If you're excited for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, you'll be happy to know that the developer is still recruiting top-notch talent.

According to IndustryGamers, Square Enix has revealed that God of War II director Cory Barlog has joined the team at Crystal Dynamics to work on Lara's new adventure.

Barlog will also be working on a "yet to be announced new title," which makes sense as the studio has said to expect more than a few fresh games in the coming years. Barlog was writer/director for GoWII and was creative director for Chains of Olympus, as well as head of story creation for Ghost of Sparta. Said Crystal Dynamics boss Darrell Gallagher:

"Crystal has pulled together some of the best teams in the industry to deliver against upcoming projects and future IP. Cory's heritage in building industry defining action adventure titles, together with our focus on delivering quality character driven blockbuster entertainment makes Cory a tremendously exciting addition to the team."

We're definitely looking forward to Tomb Raider and with guys like Barlog, it has every shot at becoming a big-time winner.

It would have been really cool if his name was Balrog instead.

Definitely excited for Tomb Raider. I've always felt the former games were just short of great. There's too much emphasis on long, frustrating, level-spanning puzzles and not enough focus on combat and intense platforming. The only thing that worries me is this supposed open world, but hopefully they will make the proper next gen improvements to make this a non-issue.
