Sources: Amazon paid 600 million to acquire the rights to Tomb Raider
It was recently reported that in addition to publishing Crystal Dynamics’ next Tomb Raider game, Amazon would be creating a TV series based on Lara Croft for Amazon Prime Video.
Following this, the Fellowship of Fans website (which has a pretty good track record in predicting things related to Amazon projects) has stated that it cost Jeff Bezos’ company a whopping 600 million acquire the Tomb Raider brand from the Embracer Group.
The report also notes that Middle-Earth Enterprises has entered into talks with Warner Bros. for the latter to disassociate itself from the brand, in order to gain full rights to the Lord of the Rings franchise. Of course, this all comes after Embracer Group also recently acquired Middle-Earth Enterprises in a move to further consolidate its entertainment licenses.
