BAFTA-nominated writer chosen to write the script for the game

Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, today announced games writer Rhianna Pratchett is the lead writer of Tomb Raider.

English-born Pratchett has been writing for and about videogames for over 12 years. In 2007 her work on Heavenly Sword was nominated for a BAFTA and a year later she won a Writers' Guild of Great Britain 'Best Videogame Script' award for Overlord. Alongside writing for videogames, she has also authored the 6-part Mirror's Edge miniseries with DC Comics.

“I grew up playing Tomb Raider, uncovering the world’s secrets and unearthing its treasures; I have lived and died as Lara Croft, but nothing comes close to the challenge of re-writing her,” said Rhianna Pratchett, lead writer of Tomb Raider.

Tomb Raider is the next title in the icon series that is set to reboot the franchise with an origins story. The game is planned to launch in March 2013.
