Crystal Dynamics’ Studio Head Darrell Gallagher has said during the studio’s latest Crystal Habit podcast, that it is starting work on a new IP.
“We’re starting to look at doing a new IP here, and we’re in the very early stages of that,” he said.
“Our ambitions are to take all the learnings and the technology and everything that we’ve done with Tomb Raider over the last six years and apply that to something new moving forward.
“And very much as Noah (Hughes, Creative Director) was saying, we’ve really learned to become experts and can still polish our skills in action/adventure, and story-telling and character-driven, and rich worlds for players to experience, and we really think that’s kind of our thing; that’s what we love to do here.
“So we’ll see where that new project goes. It’s nothing that we can talk about today, but we really want to take what we’ve learnt and expand on it.”
Crystal Dynamics hired Scott Amos from Visceral back in March, at which point there was speculation that the studio was planning to create a new IP.
The next game from the studio, Tomb Raider, will be released in 2012.
