Crystal Dynamics has announced that Tomb Raider will not make its launch window of Fall 2012, and will come out in 2013 instead.
Darrell Gallagher, Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics explained: "Our priority now is to make sure we fully deliver the very highest quality game. In order to do this, we have decided to move the game’s release date by a few months, from Fall 2012 to the first quarter of 2013."
"We’re doing things that are completely new to Tomb Raider in this game and the additional development time will allow us to put the finishing touches into the game and polish it to a level that fans deserve," he added.
The game is set to make an appearance at this year's E3. When released, Tomb Raider will be available on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
