The rumored remake of the original Tomb Raider for the PSP has been cancelled. It was originally planned for a release this summer. The game wasn’t even mentioned at E3, but when a video showed up on Google and YouTube, people thought it may still be coming, even with the strange Star Wars music in it. But now, the developer has finally come out and said that they were working on a remake and the video was an unauthorized release of an internal video of the game running on a PSP. For some reason known only to them, Core has cancelled the game. This makes no sense to me because of the success that Legends brought, but Core says the company has some big news coming soon, but they haven’t specified on anything. I personally think the game would have been a big hit, and that it’s a shame they cancelled it so close to it’s release.
[update 1]: Eidos Interactive has confirmed that Tomb Raider Remake is still on track. The game was in fact cancelled by Core Design. However, Eidos assigned the game to Crystal Dynamics, the creators of Tomb Raider: Legend.[via 1Up]
