Eidos Montreal is a pretty busy studio at the moment.
After the massive success of their blockbuster cyberpunk tour de force Deus Ex: Human Revolution and its assorted DLC addons, not to mention the cameo-style crossover DLC deal that recently saw Deus Ex elements sneaking stealthily into Hitman: Absolution, we're now told that the busy little Canadian bees are now working on the multiplayer aspect of Tomb Raider...
Not only is this exciting because Eidos Montreal have earned their chops as a talented emerging studio, but also because this seems to confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that Tomb Raider is going to have a multiplayer element.
Questions remain, however. How exactly the multiplay is going to work remains to be seen, as does whether this new project is going to affect Eidos Montreal's involvement in the new Thief game. The big question, of course, is whether the Tomb Raider multiplayer is goin to be awash in black and gold.
Great news? Or is Tomb Raider not a game that really needs multiplay? Please, pull up a seat in the comments area and tell us your thoughts!
