Crystal Dynamics cover photo update sparks rumors of multiple remakes in the works

Crystal Dynamics recently updated its cover photo to include the protagonists of the Legacy of Kain, Tomb Raider, and Gex franchises.


Crystal Dynamics will celebrate its 30th founding anniversary later this year. Naturally, fans are excited to know what the San Francisco-based company has planned. The more creative audiences, in particular, believe that a recent cover photo is hinting at multiple remakes in the works at the studio.

Crystal Dynamics Update Rumors Multiple Remakes

Crystal Dynamics Update Rumors Multiple Remakes
Fans have been begging Crystal Dynamics to reboot Gex and The Legacy of Kain for years.

Of course, it only makes sense for Crystal Dynamics to use its most recognizable mascots. At the same time, you can't blame fans for speculating.

Crystal Dynamics has sat on its most popular IPs for years. We know that the studio has its hands full with Marvel's Avengers, the Perfect Dark reboot and the next Tomb Raider game. However, the timing of the cover photo update is curious. Remember, the Embracer Group acquisition was only a few months ago.

Embracer Group might be looking to make the most out of its recent investment. Embracer Group is a larger and more diversified company compared to Square Enix. The new owners might want to make sure that such iconic franchises are not wasted.

Thankfully, we don't have to speculate for long. Crystal Dynamics will turn 30 tomorrow, July 8.
