Crystal Dynamics

Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics has expanded to a new and improved studio, Square Enix announced.

“After months of planning, building, and some very late nights for the construction crew, we’ve just moved into our glorious new state-of-the-art studio!” said Crystal Dynamics co-studio head Scot Amos in a press release. “We have some great new amenities, from hydraulic desks for everyone to adjust as they like, to black-out shades and light absorption paint for those darkness-loving developers.”

The new studio offers a fine-tuned environment, more offices and team conference rooms, and a dedicated “dallies” review room with the “latest and greatest gear.”

“We’ve expanded to six fully equipped sound proof audio rooms too,” continued Amos. “With the growth of our team, we’ve also increased our studio meeting area and naturally outfitted it with tons of next-gen 4K screens, as well as dedicated console and PC gaming stations next to the huge new kitchen. Lastly, we’ve added two specialty rooms for optimal development efficiency: a photogrammetry capture space and our very own, on-site, fully equipped Motion Capture stage!”

The announcement of a newer studio comes following the reveal of The Avengers Project, which Crystal Dynamics is working on with Marvel.
