More download-only Lara Croft titles possible

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light may not be the last download-only offshoot of the Tomb Raider franchise.

Speaking to Gamasutra, developer Crystal Dynamics’ studio general manager Darrell Gallagher says that smaller in scope, digitally distributed titles are an ideal way to fill the gap between bigger, disc-based releases. Guardian of Light is still months from release so talking about future plans is premature, however, it is an approach the studio intends to continue pursuing, Gallagher says.

Guardian of Light will launch on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and PC this summer, for $15 or its equivalent.
