Square Enix's house of all things Lara Croft - Crystal Dynamics - has been joined by God of War director Cory Barlog. He'll be involved in a new Tomb Raider project in San Francisco.
There's also a "yet to be announced new title." Barlog was writer/director for God of War 2 and creative director for Chains of Olympus, and steered Ghost of Sparta's narrative.
Since leaving Sony he worked on a few projects, including the Mad Max game. Now Cory Barlog will be helping Lady Croft plunder tombs and help our fragile civilization.
"Crystal has pulled together some of the best teams in the industry to deliver against upcoming projects and future IP," said Darrell Gallagher, head of studio. Crystal Dynamics is responsible for the revival of Tomb Raider.
“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."
Tomb Raider releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in Q3 2012.
