Crystal Dynamics are expanding. The developer of the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider franchise and the not so well received looter shooter Marvel's Avengers have announced they are opening a brand new studio named Crystal Southwest.
The studio will be set in Austin, Texas and according to the announcement, it will be a "major part of all current and future Crystal Dynamics titles". Check out the full announcement below:
"We're excited to announce our new development studio in Austin, Texas. Crystal Southwest will be a major part of all current and future Crystal Dynamics titles. Leading Crystal Southwest is Dallas Dickinson, an industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience developing AAA games. The initial team in Austin, made up of Crystal Dynamics veterans is already hard at work."
At the moment, there are no additional details about Crystal Southwest's first project.
