Crystal Dynamics partners with Amazon for new Tomb Raider TV show

Developer Crystal Dynamics has inked a deal with Amazon to bring a Tomb Raider TV show to Prime Video.

In a post on the Amazon Games website, the company said that this new show would be written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. This follows rumours that a Tomb Raider show was in the works at Amazon in 2023 and that the Fleabag creator was penning scripts for the series.

“With great IP, the possibilities are endless. The richness and depth of the fiction allows the Tomb Raider series from Prime Video and the video game from Amazon Games to tell separate stories about Lara Croft’s adventures,” Amazon Games' VP Christoph Hartmann said.

”We’re honoured that Crystal Dynamics has entrusted Amazon with this iconic franchise, and we’re looking forward to seeing where this collaboration takes us.”

Amazon Games is also publishing the next entry in the Tomb Raider franchise. Said project is apparently a single-player narrative-focused affair.
