Crystal Dynamics' has run its course with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Tomb Raider's creative director Noah Hughes told OXM in a recent interview.

He described Tomb Raider's competitive multiplayer suite as "more of a complementary experience" to the action in the single-player campaign,...
